"Native and Christian" documents the emergence of a new collective voice on the North American religious landscape. It is the first work to address the problem of religious identity from a contemporary native Christian perspective. It brings together in one volume articles originally published in a variety of sources (many obscure or out-of-print) including religious magazines, scholarly journals, and native periodicals. Representing a new form of literary expression among contemporary native people, these essays bring a fresh perspective to the global liberation theology movement. The native writers who contributed to this collection come from a number of distinct tribal backgrounds and work as academic scholars, church administrators, ordained leaders, and lay activists; they write on the basis of their involvement in a variety of Christian religious traditions including mainline Protestant denominations, the Roman Catholic church, Evangelicalism, the Pentecostal movement, Mormonism, and the Native American Church. "Native and Christian" is a goundbreaking book that transforms the way readers understand native religious identities, and that speaks to current theoretical debates over the intersection of religion, culture, politics, and race in a diverse and conflicted world.
