A quick search using the subject "Indians of North America - Religion" in Bridwell Library's catalog retrieved 130 results out of a collection of about 490,000 volumes. This suggests (a) The Library of Congress may want to consider revising some of its subject headings (but that is a topic for another time), (b) religious and spiritual practices among First Nations/Native Americans are not widely studied by our students. While there are certainly exceptions, likely this situation is not unique among theological libraries. This session represents an effort to rectify this by sharing and inviting colleagues to share recommendations of resources on spirituality and religious beliefs and practices of various First Nations/Native American peoples and their relation to the faith traditions that are more broadly represented in our collections.
