Summary
Looking to undo centuries' worth of Western misrepresentations, both willful and inadvertent, 'Spirits of Blood, Spirits of Breath' reinstates the Twinned Cosmos of Native North America by exploring the indigenous philosophy of blood and breath (or water and air). Looking first at the damage wrought by the governmental and missionary quest to dismantle not only Indian spiritualities, but even the memory of them, the text moves to examine the Sacred Twinship through its primary tropes.
