A Summary of Native American Religions
by David Ruvolo
The history of American religions is dominated by the presence of Christianity brought to the New World by European settlers. Columbus's discovery in 1492 marked the beginning of a massive "white" invasion that would consume the entire continent of North America over the next four centuries. Although Christianity manifested itself in countless denominations, it was, nevertheless, the umbrella under which most Europeans in America gathered. It served as common ground on which white settlers could stand together in the struggle for survival in the wilderness of the New World. Whatever differences there were between denominations were insignificant when compared to the differences between the white European Christianity and their counterparts on the continent, the resident Native Americans. This fact, along with the desire and need for land, turned Native Americans into a convenient enemy for most groups of European settlers.
In essence, time had run out for the indigenous race that populated the continent of North America. Like the Israelites of the sixth century B.C.E., Native Americans were faced with an enemy that was more advanced. Ironically, the invading whites are the religious descendants of those same Israelites who were conquered by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E.. Armed with technologically advanced weapons, diseases which were foreign to the continent, and a concept known as Manifest Destiny, European settlers began an assault on the North American Continent the result of which was nothing short of genocide. Within four hundred years of their first contact, the white man had succeeded in stripping Native American civilizations of virtually all of their land and had nearly wiped their cultures from the face of the earth.

4. Native American Religion
Overview of different beliefs and rituals, the concept of religious experience and background information of native american religions.
Native American Religion
"Mitakuye Oyasin: We are all related. Most Indians hear this phrase thousands of times a year as they attend or perform ceremonies and for many...the phrase seems to be...a liturgical blessing that includes all other forms of life in human ceremonial activities." Vine Deloria, Jr., 1992 Background Anthropologists divide the Native American cultures of North America into seven groups: Eastern Woodlands, Southeastern, Plains, Plateau, Great Basin, Southwestern, and Northwest Coastal. Each of these geographical groupings contains many distinct peoples with only the broadest characteristics in common, each with their own culture and religious beliefs. Any attempt to briefly summarize such a rich variety of peoples as this page does is going to involve inexact generalizations: It can't be helped. Where space permits, examples appear from different tribal groups, but they do not begin to reflect the diversity of Native American spirituality. Ritual How do traditional Native Americans seek closeness/union with Spirit?

" The culture, values and traditions of native people amount to more than crafts and carvings. Their respect for the wisdom of their elders, their concept of family responsibilities extending beyond the nuclear family to embrace a whole village, their respect for the environment, their willingness to share - all of these values persist within their own culture even though they have been under unremitting pressure to abandon them. " Mr. Justice Thomas Berger, Mackenzie Valley Pipeline Inquiry, (aka the Berger Inquiry). " Rather than going to church, I attend a sweat lodge; rather than accepting bread and toast [sic] from the Holy Priest, I smoke a ceremonial pipe to come into Communion with the Great Spirit; and rather than kneeling with my hands placed together in prayer, I let sweetgrass be feathered over my entire being for spiritual cleansing and allow the smoke to carry my prayers into the heavens. I am a Mi'kmaq, and this is how we pray. " Noah Augustine, from his article "

Siubhan's Little Pagan Page Musings

Cultural Imperialism in Witchcraft
Over the years, I've been troubled by the way that modern Witchcraft appropriates goddesses and gods from all around the world with seemingly no respect for the religions these deities come from. This abuse takes two major forms, and both are disrespectful in their own way. For starters, I don't believe it's ethical to take deities from living religions and use them outside their proper religious and cultural context. I've read many invocations to Kali that are clearly not Hindu. The same goes for Kwan-Yin, who is used in Buddhism, and Pele of the Hawaiian people. These are goddesses who are currently worshipped by living peoples and living religions. Worshipping them in a Wiccan way is disrespectful to both. Would you invoke Yahweh in a circle? No. So why Kali? Similarly, it is disrespectful to use Judeo-Christian angels in Wiccan worship, and I'm seeing more and more of that of late. These are deities and entities who have living religions. The proper and respectful way to worship them is to study and adopt that religion, not to suck them into your own religion. Another practice that bothers me is that of conquering peoples using deities from the conquered. Pele comes back to mind, as do Native North American deities and religious practices. It's simply conquest all over again. Plus, in many cases, these are still living religions. What right do I have as a white woman in the United States to simply pick and choose what I want of Native American religious practices without permission? The respectful and appropriate thing to do is study and practice the actual religion, not appropriate the parts you like.

10. Teaching About Native American Religions
Teaching native american religions. And I have to ask what it might meanto teach a courseon native american religions on this premise?

Article by an Asatru practitioner on similarities between traditional tribal European and native american religions.
Th e following article appeared as a flyer produced in 1995 by the Asatru Folk Assembly, aimed at European-Americans who are attracted to Native American spirituality. It has received praise from several Native American writers and thinkers, including Vine Deloria, author of GOD IS RED and many other books dealing with American Indians.
The term "wannabees" is used by some Native Americans to refer to outsiders who "want to be" Indians.
So you're a European-American who's attracted to Native American spirituality... The way of the American Indian offers much to those who want to live in harmony with the Earth, and with the own beings. The simplicity of a life close to nature, and the powerful techniques of the shaman, call out to all of us who want to walk lightly on this planet and to know the journeys of the soul that make one wise. Many people, including those of European ancestry, feel the pull of this spiritual path. However, there is something to consider. Many Native Americans feel that you should seek out the ways of your people, rather than intruding upon their ways. They understand your interest in their traditions, but they think you should look for something that is yours. Well, just what IS yours?

    19. Native American Religions And The New Age Movement
    native american religions and the New Age Movement by Brian C. Blakemore. Do nonNativeAmericans have a right to practice native american religions?
    N a t i v e A m e r i c a n R e l i g i o n s a n d t h e N e w A g e M o v e m e n t by Brian C. Blakemore
    D o non-Native Americans have a right to practice Native American religions? This question not only brings to light concerns regarding how much freedom a religion has concerning who it allows to practice it, but it also arises issues about the travesties inflicted upon the Native American people by the people who now wish to practice their religions. Should they be allowed to keep their religion to themselves, and only themselves, because it is the last bit of their culture that hasn't been stolen from them by the white man? Both sides of these issues have been more-or-less well represented in the assigned readings and, from these readings, we can see that there is no clear answer to questions. "True spiritual leaders do not make a profit from their teachings, whether it's through selling books, workshops, sweat lodges, or otherwise. Spiritual leaders teach the people because it is their responsibility to pass what they have learned from their elders to the younger generations. They do not charge for their services." (p. 44) The Native Americans were not a capitalistic society and their religion does not incorporate capitalistic ideals into it's followers. A true medicine man or woman would not even think about making someone pay to learn information.

    Teaching Native American Religions
    The following is a series of discussions concerning the teaching of Indian religions outside of their own cultural context. Ron Grimes has also published an article on this topic in The American Indian Quarterly , Volume 20, Number 3 (1996), pages 433-450. The title of the article is: This May Be a Feud, But It Is Not a War: An Electronic, Interdisciplinary Dialogue on Teaching Native Religions From: Ron Grimes, U Colorado Boulder (at the time)
    6-MAY-1993 18:51:48.40
    Subj: Teach. Nat. Am. Rel.
    I am submitting this query simultaneously to two electronic discussion groupsone on religious studies, the other on Native American issuesto invite reflection on three questions: 1. Should or should not European Americans be teaching courses on Native American religions? 2. If we should not, why not, and what would be the results of our deferral? 3. If we should, how best can we proceed? I am giving much thought these days to the question of cultural imperialism, especially in two of its forms, namely, religious and academic imperialism. While on leave, I have been asked by the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder, to teach a very large, publicly visible introductory course on Native American religions. Vine Deloria teaches here. So does Sam Gill. So does Ward Churchill. So does Deward Walker. Even without David Carrasco, soon on his way to Princeton, this is an sizeable concentration of authorities, of various sorts, on indigenous cultures, politics, law, and religions. Ordinarily, I teach courses on indigenous religions at Wilfrid Laurier, a small Canadian university where I can do what I do in relative obscurity, that is, at considerable remove from indigenous populations of the American Southwest, where I do most of my field work, and at a considerable remove from high-profile scholars whose names are regularly associated with Native American studies.
