This title contributes both to expert discussion of important religious and cultural issues and to on-going debates about improved methods of research. The inclusion of examples of indigenous ideological, legal and fiction writing further enhances the volume's engagement with indigenous and scholarly perspectives, experiences and interests. In addition to expert descriptions of aspects of particular indigenous religious lifeways and worldviews, the readings also encourage a reconsideration of academic approaches to the study of indigenous religions. New dialogical and conversational methods of engagement promise to reconnect academia in building more equitable relationships and a healthier world.
