Description: This monumental volume explores, explains, and honors the healing practices of Native Americans throughout North America, from the southwestern United States to the Arctic Circle.

Healing traditions in Native American cultures offer a glimpse into the richness of the belief systems and spiritual practices of the many tribes and the ways in which they live. Covering over 350 years of history and with more than 1,200 entries, the volume introduces readers to renowned Native American healers; societies and divisions into which healers were categorized; sacred objects used in healing rituals and how each was used; types of healing ceremonies conducted; plants used to increase healing powers; symbolic motifs used in healing rituals; major concepts that formed Native American healing traditions; and major scholars of Native American healing, complete with firsthand accounts of their experiences. Designed for ease of use with maps, a detailed subject index, an extensive bibliography, and cross references, this book will fascinate anyone interested in Native American culture and heritage.
-- Healing traditions in Native American cultures offer a glimpse into the richness of the belief systems and spiritual practices of the many tribes and the ways in which they live. This work condenses centuries of ethnographic study into one authoritative, easy-to-use volume.
