Book: Indigenous Religious Traditions in Five Minutes
Chapter: 43. What does it mean for an Indigenous religion to be “place-based?”
Indigenous peoples often speak of being from and of particular places. Indigenous relationships are both ancient and emerging, tied to particular places of revolution or power, burial sites, and actions of sacred figures. Indigenous religions are rooted in place, but not “stuck” in place as evident in urban intertribal gatherings and transnational protest movements.
