The Indian Great Awakening

Religion and the Shaping of Native Cultures in Early America

Linford D. Fisher

  • Provides a new framework for understanding religious conversion.
  • Brings together strands of Native history that are not often considered together: religion, land, use of the court system, and local intratribal politics.
  • Argues that the Great Awakening was not as formative in the lives of Natives (or as widely embraced) as previously assumed.
