Rituals and Images

Tags: Anthropology, Ritual Studies Monograph Series


Rituals are important in various contexts, including disaster responses. This book explores a number of environmental-related topics that are important for the contemporary situations of peoples faced with environmental challenges or disasters, and more generally for their cultural ideas about dancing and decorations as indications of well-being and fertility in their life-patterns. Combining environmental issues with aesthetics and healing and ritual practices, Diaspora, Disasters, and the Cosmos exemplifies the inter-relations of cultural patterns in the lives of indigenous people in the Pacific and elsewhere.
