Overview

The Shawnee Spirit provides a wide-ranging study of Shawnee cosmogony over a period of more than two hundred years as they endeavored in the face of the relentless cross-cultural forces arrayed against them. The comparative and historical facets of of early Shawnee myth reveal the forces of change and continuity that display a combination of ideological transformations as a part of a process of retrenchment such that the Shawnee drew from the wealth of their own rich traditions to formulate a unique view of their origins and destiny. The Shawnee looked upon the European "other" and found it wanting and went on to cultivate their own vision of their God and their people. John Sugden: "Here, then, is the most comprehensive review of Shawnee legends, myths and thought worlds to date, drawing upon material from the mid-eighteenth century to the 1970s.
