Masked Gods : Navaho & Pueblo Ceremonialism Paperback / softback

Description

Masked Gods is a vast book, a challenging and profoundly original account of the history, legends, and ceremonialism of the Navaho and Pueblo Indians of the Southwest.

Following a brief but vivid history of the two tribes through the centuries of conquest, the book turns inward to the meaning of Indian legends and ritual - Navaho songs, Pueblo dances, Zuni kachina ceremonies.

Enduring still, these rituals and ceremonies express a view of life, of man's place in the creation, which is compared with Taoism and Buddhism - and with the aggressive individualism of the Western world.
