Nonfiction. Native American Studies. "A SACRED PATH is ultimately about Creek peoplehood. It connects the Muscogee sacred history with the land, the spirit world, the confederacy's sociopolitical organization, and the ceremonial cycle in a carefully researched and well-written single volume. The Chaudhuris' understanding of Creek traditions and their insights into the internal world of traditional Native American values and value systems are unequaled. Jean's work as a researcher and storyteller in her native Muscogee language teamed with Joy's background in philosophy and American Indian studies makes this volume a major contribution to the literature on the Creeks as well as a highly readable and fascinating ethno history"—Tom Holm, Ph.D. (Cherokee-Creek).
