God is Red: A Native View of Religion

Vine Deloria



First published in 1972 during a resurgence in Native American activism, this work critiqued the Western spiritual worldview and its effect on Native Americans and the society as a whole, promoting an alternative Indian conception of religion (most succinctly summed up by the bumper sticker seen on Indian reservations, reading "Hey God is Red She isn't dead."). The author argues throughout that religious beliefs can't be separated from history and relates Christian doctrine to historical events from its origins in the Middle East to the American war in Vietnam.
