“Cree and Christian provides a remarkable contribution to the understanding of the lived experience and practices of Cree people in two boreal forest communities in Alberta, Canada. . . . The book provides fascinating insights on Cree religiosity, ontologies, and cultural perspectives, grasping the complexity of the religious landscape in a huge region and the transformative continuity of Cree Christianities.”—Frédéric Laugrand, coauthor of Hunters, Predators, and Prey: Inuit Perceptions of Animals
“The study of Pentecostalism is of great importance because of the global reach of this Protestant sect and the influence among Indigenous peoples. . . . Westman offers an excellent discussion of worship—finding ecstasy—through music, singing, altar calls and testifying, praying, anointing, and laying on of hands in healing rituals.”—Julius H. Rubin, author of Perishing Heathens: Stories of Protestant Missionaries and Christian Indians in Antebellum America?
