From the Dalit midwives in India to the women of the Nahua region in the state of Morelos, Mexico, from the indigenous nations in Turtle Island in Canada to the shamans (male and female) of South Korea and Vietnam, there are still many vital indigenous cultures around the world in which women often hold positions of religious authority and leadership.

Women and Indigenous ReligionS addresses specific issues in the study of religion, such as the multifaceted tensions between indigenous traditions and gender and the genealogy of positions of authority in religion or spiritual matters. A close examination reveals that native religions, with their women specialists, are still a source of inspiration for millions of men and women even in the "advanced" areas in the world. This fact challenges the opinion that indigenous cultures are becoming extinct.


At the core of most indigenous religions is a deep respect for the earth expressed in rituals and practices that foster sustainability. Nature is often regarded as a sacred entity that comprises all the people of the earth. The endeavor of maintaining and transmitting these rituals and practices is commonly entrusted to female spiritual and intellectual leaders.
