(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.
