Only the power to define what is sacred— and access it—will enable Native American communities to remember who they are.


The indigenous imperative to honor nature is undermined by federal laws approving resource extraction through mining and drilling. Formal protections exist for Native American religious expression, but not for the places and natural resources integral to ceremonies. Under what conditions can traditional beliefs be best practiced?


Recovering the Sacred features a wealth of native research and hundreds of interviews with indigenous scholars and activists.
