Grateful Prey uncovers the interaction between magico-religious ideology and hunting strategies among the Asinskâwôiniwak, or Rock Crees, of Northern Manitoba. Brightman maintains that subsistence strategies need to be analyzed in terms of the foragers' own ethnoecological categories and postulates, both sacred and secular, a position which poses a challenge to prevailing ecological and Marxist approaches to foraging societies and strategies. A major contribution to the study of foraging societies.
