Red Man's Religion by Ruth Murray Underhill

Book Description

In this classic account of the religion of the American Indians north of the Rio Grande, Ruth Underhill examines religious behavior and belief and the ways in which these are adapted to various Indian lifeways throughout the continent. Focusing on Indian religious ceremonies, she specifies the different spiritual needs of big game hunters, seed gatherers, and planters, and details the ways these requirements are expressed in vastly different ceremonies and beliefs about birth, death, and the spirits. The study concludes with a consideration of new religions evolved by the Indians after contact with the white man, including the Ghost Dance and the Peyote Religion.
