Quote of the Week 259 - The Spirituality of the Original Inhabitants of America
Their world was multitudinous, densely populated by active, sentient and sensitive spirits, spirits with consciences, memories and purposes, that surrounded them, instructed them, impinged on their lives at every turn. No less real for being invisible…the whole of life was a spiritual enterprise…the universe in all its movements and animations and nature was suffused with spiritual potency.
--Excerpt from a book by Harvard historian Bernard Bailyn, The Barbarous Years, as contained in an article by Ron Rosenbaum in the Smithsonian magazine, March 2013. Bailyn does not use the term “Native Americans” in designating the “original inhabitants” of America, but simply “Americans”.
