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.
