Synopsis
This is an ethnographic description of Cherokee shamanistic practice. Based on several manuscripts written by Cherokee shamans of the 19th Century, this includes the actual text of the rituals to treat various diseases, information on herbs used, love spells, hunting rituals, weather spells, as well as a spell for victory in the Ball game.

About the Author

James Mooney (1861 - 1921)
James Mooney (1861-1921) was an American anthropologist who lived for several years among the Cherokee. He was born at Richmond, Indiana. In 1885 he became connected with the Bureau of American Ethnology at Washington, D.C. He compiled a tribal list containing 3,000 titles. His most notable work was his ethnographic study of the Ghost Dance, a widespread religious movement among various Native American culture groups that ended in 1890 with a bloody massacre of Lakota people at Wounded Knee, South Dakota.
