Product Description


This work presents thoughtful philosophical reflections on the very idea of tradition...the author offers refreshing insights... highly recommended.


A terrifically thought-provoking study of what honoring elders means.

(Heid E. Erdrich The Circle)

An excellent resource for scholars studying aging, eldership, or the Anishinaabe people.

(Shelly E. V. Nixon Religious Studies Review)

This is an extraordinarily fascinating book; an insightful and scholarly exploration of Native American attitudes toward aging and eldership.

(James Woodward Reviews in Religion & Theology)

Honoring Elders will prove an important foundational springboard for future studies on eldership to come.

(Cary Miller American Indian Quarterly)


Honoring Elders presents a sophisticated, insightful examination of Native attitudes toward aging and eldership. It challenges scholars to add the figure of the elder to their categories for studying religion and urges them to rethink the category of tradition as something fluid rather than fixed. This book even provides a resource for thinking about how to view (or to experience) aging in America today.

(Catherine A. Brekus, University of Chicago)|

A beautifully and intelligently written, brilliant synthesis of soulful ethnography and sophisticated social theory. Michael D. McNally does us a great service by pointing out that we need a fuller reckoning of the centrality of social ethics to Native religions, and then delivering it.

(Larry Nesper, University of Wisconsin-Madison)

A MUST Read - Feb. 22 2012
By Aanzhen - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book on the history of Nishnaab eldership discussed impact of zhaaganash contact and how the whole community was effected. Well done. Helped me understand the impact of the IRA on tribal vs urban nishnaab communities.
