Inhaltsangabe: This is a description of a Navajo shamanistic healing ceremony. It centers around a recitation of a cycle of myths about a Navajo culture hero, Dsilyidje Qacal. His journey takes him to the land of the gods and goddesses, where he learns powerful magic. The narrative is compelling and compares well with the Homeric Odyssey, which it resembles both thematically and stylistically. The ceremony incorporates dance, song, prayer, sand-painting, drama, sculpture, conjuring, and even a bit of farce. (Quote from sacred-texts.com)
About the Author
John William Lloyd (1857 - 1940)
John William Lloyd (J. William Lloyd) (June 4, 1857 - 1940) was an American individualist anarchist. Lloyd was born in New Jersey, and later moved to Grahamville, Florida. He based his individualist anarchism upon natural law, rather than on egoism as Benjamin Tucker did; this was a source of conflict amidst otherwise friendly relations between Tucker and himself. Lloyd later modified his position to minarchism. (Quote from (Quote from (Quote from (Quote from wikipedia.org))))
