Synopsis:

Popular Hopi kachina dolls and awesome totem poles are but two of the aspects of the sophisticated, seldom-examined network of mythologies explored in this fascinating volume.


· More than 40 photographs and illustrations portraying traditional customs and lifeways, antiquities, artwork (e.g., motifs, baskets, pottery, rugs, masks, totem poles), clothing and dress, and prominent places within traditional sacred geographies

· Maps of Native American cultural areas and climates of North America, which are revealing because of the central role climate and weather play in a number of Native American myths

Book Description:

To some in the Lakota tribe, the 1994 birth of a rare white buffalo calf in Wisconsin was more than a biological anomaly—it was the long-prophesied return of their most revered deity, White Buffalo Woman, a harbinger of peace and good times. To others it was powerful proof of the hold myths can have on the people whose lives are molded around them.

By tracing the traditions as far back as possible and following their evolution from generation to generation, Handbook of Native American Mythology offers a unique perspective on Native American history, culture, and values. It also shows how central these traditions are to contemporary Native American life, including the continuing struggle for land rights, economic parity, and repatriation of cultural property.
