Spirits of Blood, Spirits of Breath

The Twinned Cosmos of Indigenous America

Barbara Alice Mann

  • Explains the ancient but understudied concept of Twinned Cosmos
  • Uses both Western and Indigenous source material
  • Respects each Native culture as a discrete unit, rather than generalizing them as is often done in Western anthropology
