Overview

Giving Voice to Bear: North American Indian Myths, Rituals, and Images of the Bear by David Rockwell, D. Rockwell, Janet McGahan

In this new edition of a classic, David Rockwell describes the captivating and awe-inspiring presence of the bear in Native American rituals. The bear played a central role in shamanic rights, initiation, healing and hunting ceremonies, and new year celebrations. Considered together, these traditions are another way of looking at the world, one in which the mysteries of the universe are revealed through animals.
