Description
From the Apache to the Zuni, this is an overview of the respective history, belief, and culture of the nations and major tribes of American Indians, in a handsome edition with archival photos and vivid color images of crafts, landscapes, and art. Anthropology professor Larry Zimmerman, the Public Scholar of Native American Representation at Indian University–Purdue University Indianapolis, illuminates the expression of the spiritual and the sacred in Native ritual and ceremony, explores myth and symbolism, and considers the cultural significance of such topics as war, prayer, totems, maize, hunting, dreams, ancestors, trees, and great migrations. Substantial quotations from prose, poetry, and speeches by Native Americans punctuate the text.
