1981 Harper Row hardcover, Jamake Highwater (Dance: Rituals of Experience). This pioneering work on American Indian culture provides an uncommon insight into the world of Indians and into Western civilization itself. Jamake Highwater examines the cultural aspects of American Indian ritual, art, oral traditions, architecture and ceremonial dance as broad and unique cultural metaphors coming from a world fundamentally different from that of the West. The perceptions of time and space, the visions and realities of Native American culture as they evolved during centuries of almost complete isolation are discussed in an original and often startling new manner. - Amazon
