In his study of the relation between Indians and animals on the northern Great Plains, Harrod (social ethics and sociology of religion, Oberlin U.) examines cultural practices that flourished from the mid-18th to the mid-19th century. He focuses on hunting practices and the presence of animals in the folklore of the Lakota, Blackfeet, Cheyenne, Pawnee, and other peoples and how their traditions reflect a "sacred ecology" in which humans exist in relationship with other powers, including animals. He also explores the meanings of Indian-animal relations for a contemporary society that values human dominance over the natural world. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR
