The Catholic Calumet
Full Product Description
Leavelle abandons singular definitions of conversion that depend on the idealized elevation of colonial subjects from "savages" to "Christians" for more dynamic concepts that explain the changes that all participants experienced. A series of thematic chapters on topics such as myth and historical memory, understandings of human nature, the creation of colonial landscapes, translation of religious texts into Native languages, and the influence of gender and generational differences demonstrates that these encounters resulted in the emergence of complicated and unstable cross-cultural religious practices that opened new spaces for cultural creativity and mutual adaptation.
The Catholic Calumet by Tracy Neal Leavelle was published by University of Pennsylvania Press in October 2014. The ISBN for The Catholic Calumet is 9780812223217.
