BeschreibungThis book provides an in-depth look at spiritual experiences about which very little has been written. Belief in reincarnation exists not only in India but in most small tribal societies throughout the world, including many Indian groups in North America.
The stories and commentary presented here are well researched and drawn from anthropological records and other reliable sources of information. Learn about a Winnebago shaman's initiation, the Cherokee's Orpheus myth, the Hopi story of "A Journey to the Skeleton House, the Inuit man who lived the lives of all animals, the Ghost Dance, and other extraordinary accounts.
Foreword by Antonia Mills, PhD, professor First Native Studies, University of Northern British Columbia, and co-editor of Amerindian Rebirth.
