The Navajo Hunter Tradition

The University of Arizona Press
A new approach to the study of myths relating to the origin of the Navajos. Based on extensive fieldwork and research, including Navajo hunter informants and unpublished manuscripts of Father Berard Haile.

Part 1: The Navajo Tradition, Perspectives and History
Part II: Navajo Hunter Mythology A Collection of Texts
Part III: The Navajo Hunter Tradition: An Interpretation
A fresh approach to the analysis of Navajo Indian mythology. Luckert is concerned with the historicity, the relationship of Gameways to other aspects of Navajo ceremonialism, specifically the healing chantways, and other theoretical aspects of the Navajo hunter tradition. This work is a sound presentation of materials, analysis, and theorizing for the use of anthropologists, folklorists, and students of the history of religion.’—Leland C. Wyman

After receiving a PhD in the history of religion at the University of Chicago in 1969, he taught humanities at Northern Arizona University.
