The Mythology Of The Wichita

George A. Dorsey

""The Mythology of the Wichita"" by George A. Dorsey is a comprehensive study of the religious beliefs and practices of the Wichita Native American tribe. The book delves into the creation myths, legends, and rituals that were central to the Wichita's spiritual and cultural identity. Dorsey examines the role of the shaman, the significance of animal spirits, and the importance of communal ceremonies in the Wichita's religious life. He also explores the impact of European contact on the tribe's mythology and the ways in which the Wichita adapted to changing circumstances. Written in the late 19th century, this seminal work remains a valuable resource for scholars of Native American studies and anyone interested in the rich cultural heritage of the Wichita people.Collected Under The Auspices Of The Carnegie Institution Of Washington.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
