  • Cherokee Religion
    In recent years and at present a steady rise of participation in "earth or nature" centered religions can be seen. Many of the ancient faiths, including Cherokee, driven to the brink of extinction by christianity and other forms of cultural genocide, are now being fervently renewed. Our religion was once as mighty as a blazing fire, and then it was reduced to a mere handful of sparks scattered upon the wind and cast to the stars.

  • Native American Religion
    What do we mean when we speak of Native American religion? Unlike Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam, it has no single founder. Unlike Judaism, it is not the ongoing story of a people with a strong sense of their own identity. Neither does it resemble Hinduism, with its ancient and all-inclusive adaptiveness. In a sense, Native American religion does not exist at all: There is no one religious expression common to the 250 distinct Native American peoples still surviving as America approaches the 21st century.

  • Native American Religion in Early America
    Teaching about Native American religion is a challenging task to tackle with students at any level, if only because the Indian systems of belief and ritual were as legion as the tribes inhabiting North America. So let's begin by trimming down that bewildering variety to manageable proportions with three glittering generalizations (which might, with luck, prove more useful than misleading).

  • Native American religious Beliefs
    The religious beliefs of a variety of Native American tribes are discussed on this site...Muskogee, Iroquois, Catawba, etc..

  • NATIVE AMERICAN SPIRITUALITY
    ".....the North American public remains ignorant about Native American religions. And this, despite the fact that hundreds of books and articles have been published by anthropologists, religionists and others about native beliefs......Little of this scholarly literature has found its way into popular books about Native American religion..."

  • Native American Spirituality
    The diversity of American Indian tribes precludes a comprehensive examination of their religions and their belief systems. Anthropologists have compiled a huge trove of information detailing practices and beliefs of many different groups, this information remained isolated from popular culture. While there is a proliferation of popularized versions of Native American spirituality, there are often not the products of the tribes or their members. The beliefs and practices of many groups are sectarian derivatives of other native groups, the there is also a significant infusion of Christianity, and more recently, New Age beliefs and practices permeating these traditional beliefs.

  • Native Americans. Religion
    The following is a link to Internet sites on Native American religions, followed by a bibliography of children's books on Native American religions and religious practices.
