Inhaltsangabe: Armin Geertz corrects what he sees as basic American and European tendencies to misrepresent non-Western cultures. Carefully documenting the historical role of prophecy in Hopi Indian religion, Geertz shows how prophecies about the end of the world have been created by the Hopi Traditionalist Movement and used by non-Indian movements, cults, and interest groups. Many of the seeming peculiarities of Hopi religion and culture have been invented, he says, by tourists, novelists, journalists, and scholars, and the millennial Traditionalist Movement has subtly co-authored European and American stereotypes of Indians. Geertz's richly detailed examples and persuasive arguments will be welcomed by all those interested in Native American studies, comparative religions, anthropology, and sociology.

Umschlagtext: "The most important contribution to the history of Hopi religion that is currently available."--Fred Eggan, University of Chicago

"Especially effective as a critique and displacement of largely misconceived and widely accepted interpretations of Hopi myth and Hopi political factionalism."--Peter Whiteley, Sarah Lawrence College
