Prophets of the Great Spirit offers an in-depth look at the work of a diverse group of Native American visionaries who forged new, syncretic religious movements that provided their peoples with the ideological means to resist white domination. By blending ideas borrowed from Christianity with traditional beliefs, they transformed ?high? gods or a distant and aloof creator into a powerful, activist deity that came to be called the Great Spirit. These revitalization leaders sought to regain the favor of the Great Spirit through reforms within their societies and the inauguration of new ritual practices. Among the prophets included in this study are the Delaware Neolin, the Shawnee Tenkswatawa, the Creek ?Red Stick? prophets, the Seneca Handsome Lake, and the Kickapoo Kenekuk. Covering more than a century, from the early 1700s through the Kickapoo Indian removal of the Jacksonian Era, the prophets of the Great Spirit sometimes preached armed resistance but more often used nonviolent strategies to resist white cultural domination. Some prophets rejected virtually all aspects of Euro-American culture. Others sought to assure the survival of their culture through selective adaptation. Alfred A. Cave explains the conditions giving rise to the millenarian movements in detail and skillfully illuminates the key histories, personalities, and legacies of the movement. Weaving an array of sources into a compelling narrative, he captures the diversity of these prophets and their commitment to the common goal of Native American survival.

This book is all about the fantasies that we have from childhood that go on for as long as we dare to dream. How often have we imagined being somewhere else or someone else? This story allows us to do just that, in our vivid imagination. Pretend that you are living during the time when hybrids inhabited the earth and you were a Mermaid, an Immortal, a God, Fairy or a hybrid of any being. Travel was as easy as being beamed up by a violet flame and you flew through the Cosmos at leisure. But remember the darker side. There are also ogre demons with evil wisdom, and daily life is dangerous for all beings. Gods will come down to Earth whenever you called them for assistance. Then there is also a time of abuse and suffering because of the shape-shifters and werewolves and long lonely journeys through storms and drought. Experience a journey through the desert into Egypt, and witness the Great Sphinx sink into an abyss caused by an earthquake! Hear the roar of the God of the East as he is liberated from his tomb! So dream on dear one and delight in your adventures!
