Peoples
Most
indigenous
peoples have
creation
stories where
they believe
the Creator
or Great
Father in the
Sky made the
earth, the
animals and
all humans,
e.g., the
union of Sky
Father and
Earth Mother.
Fisher, 2014,
p. 36
Indigenous
religions are
typically
polytheistic and
pantheistic,
involving a belief
that the divine is
manifested
throughout the
physical realm,
often involving a
supreme god,
e.g., Great
Spirit. They
believe the dark
gods of the spirit
world are the
ones to be afraid
of or to placate.
Indigenous
peoples believe
in the
importance of
maintaining a
right relationship
with the creator
god and the
numerous gods
governing
natural
phenomena and
forces. Fisher,
2014, p. 40
Indigenous
peoples
consider
themselves
connected to all
forms of life
due to their
pantheistic
world view.
They
acknowledge a
Circle of Right
Relationships,
requiring them
to respectively
cultivate and
maintain order
among all
forms of life
and the natural
order. Humans
are seen as
capable of
good or bad
and under the
influence of
curses, vows,
incantations, or
evil spirits. In
this sense, they
may be
animistic. Many
have a special
shaman or
witch doctor
who is
supposed to
Indigenous
peoples
recognize
that both
benevolent
and
malevolent
forces exist in
the spiritual
realm. These
forces can
have an
impact upon
individuals,
circumstance
and events in
the physical
world.
Good and
evil are seen
as forces that
compete for
dominance in
a person and
in the world.
Sometimes
there is an
ethnocentric
idea that ‘our’
group is the
good one and
all outsiders
are ‘bad’.
This idea can
lead to wars
and conflicts.
Fisher, 2014,
The idea of
the path or
the way or a
lifeway is
their main
idea of
salvation. It
is the path to
the good.
This idea is
closely
aligned with a
responsibility
for nature
and this
world,
connected
with the idea
of the Circle
of Right
Relationships
and the
holistic
connection
among all
things in the
natural world.
Oneness with
nature is for
some seen
as a goal of
life. Others
see
‘salvation’ as
surviving and
not being
defeated by
Many
indigenous
peoples
acknowledge
a spiritual
existence in
the afterlife,
evidenced by
rituals and
practices
surrounding
ancestor
veneration.
Some groups
have a notion
of an afterlife,
but others do
not. For
example,
some Native
American
groups believe
in a “Happy
Hunting
Ground’ or
that one goes
to be with the
ancestors
and/or the
Great Spirit.
Many
indigenous
peoples are
terrified of
death and use
their rituals to
ward it off.
Varies by
country or
group. Some
have animal
sacrifices or
smoke various
substances in
a ritualistic
manner.
Practices and
rituals may
include a
Sweat Lodge
ceremony or a
Vision Quest
among some
Native
Americans.
Dance is often
used to
express
stories and
tales of the
tribe or group
or the gods.
Body
decoration,
paint,
garments and
drums are
often used in
the ritual
dances. To
placate the
spirits, they
may also cut

Varies by
country or
group. Some
have
celebrations
tied to the

the year.
Others have
celebrations
of victory in
war or at
weddings.
The birth of
children is
often a time
of great
celebration.
Death is
universally
observed in
various ways
depending on
the culture
and local
beliefs. The
finding of
good prey
when hunting

cause for

as well.
