Description

Carling I. Malouf recalls a Peyote ritual he was invited to attend in 1939 and how he became an honorary member of the Crow tribe in Montana. He goes on to describe many aspects of Native American religion and culture including but not limited to history, linguistics, art, hunting, and gender. Malouf details Native American experiences of receiving a “gift,” or spiritual power, from a spirit in the form of an animal, person, or inanimate object, while noting that these powers had limitations. He compares Native American religions to other traditions around the globe, especially Christianity, and concludes that they held basic features in common. He notes that world traditions are more similar than they are different.
