The Ghost Dance: Ethnohistory And Revitalization
"In this ethnohistorical case study of North American Indians, the Ghost Dance religion is the backbone for Alice Kehoe's exploration of significant aspects of American Indian life and her quest to learn why some theories become popular. In Part 1, she combines knowledge gained from her first and experiences living among and speaking with Indian elders with a careful analysis of historical accounts, providing a succinct yet insightful look at people, events, and institutions from the 1800s to the present. She clarifies unique and complex relationships among Indian peoples and dispels many of the false pretenses promoted by United States agencies over two centuries. In Part 2, Kehoe surveys some of the theories used to analyze the events described in Part 1, allowing readers to see how theories develop, to think critically about various perspectives, and to draw their own conclusions."--BOOK JACKET.

This book bored me to tears. And it shouldn't have, because the Ghost Dance religion was a totally interesting phenomenon. I was pissed that the person writing it was so bland.
