Among the topics considered in this classic study are world origins and supernatural powers, attitudes toward the dead, the medicine man and shaman, hunting and gathering rituals, war and planting ceremonies, and newer religions, such as the Ghost Dance and the Peyote Religion.

"The distinctive contribution of [Red Man's Religion] is the treatment of topics, the insight and the perspective of the author, and her ability to transmit these to the reader. . . . Trais and aspects of religion are not treated as abstract entitites, to be enumerated and summated, assigned a geographic distribution, and then abandoned. No page is a dry recital; each is an illumination. Insight and wisdom are framed in poetic prose. An offering of information in such a medium merits gratitude."—American Anthropologist

Book Description The University of Chicago Press, United States, 1972. Paperback. Condition: New. New edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. 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.
