Description

Amerindian Rebirth: Reincarnation Belief among North American Indians and Inuit is a collection of 15 essays that survey the religious beliefs of Native North American cultures. Most of the essays were originally presented in 1990 as papers at the annual meeting of the Canadian Anthropological Society. The essays cover such topics as seventeenth-century Huron eschatology, Winnebago ideology, varying forms of Inuit belief, and concepts of reincarnation found among the Dene, Kutchin, Kwakiutl, Tlingit, and Gitksan. This scholarly anthropological text examines the concepts of self-identity, kinship, religion, cosmology, resiliency, and change among the Native People of North America.
