Synopsis of Native North American Spirituality of the Eastern Woodlands:

This work makes available for the first time in a single volume a representative collection of the major spiritual texts from the Native American Indian peoples of the East Coast. Elisabeth Tooker, professor of anthropology at Temple University and an editor of The Handbook of North American Indians, presents the sacred traditions of the Iroquois, Winnibego, Fox, Menominee, Delaware, Cherokee and others. What makes this volume so unique is that it gives the reader direct access to the original works (in the words of the Indians themselves) rather than having them filtered through some interpreter.

Contents consist of Cosmology, Dreams and Visions, Delaware Big House Ceremonial. Winnebago Night Spirits Society Ceremonial, Menominee bundle Ceremonials, Fox Clan Ceremonials, Iroquois Ceremonials, Southeastern Indiana Formulas.
