    Aztec Calendar
    Aztec (Nahua) Mexico
    There is not just one Aztec calendar, there are two more or less independent systems. One calendar, called the xiuhpohualli, has 365 days. It describes the days and rituals related to the seasons, and therefor might be called the agricultural year or the solar year. The other calendar has 260 days. In Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, it is called the tonalpohualli or, in English, the day-count. Most information on this Internet-site refers to the tonalpohualli, which is the sacred calendar.

    International Aborginal Ministries
    An intra-faith ministry of aboriginal people helping aboriginal people of all tribes. Participataion by people of all religious beliefs are welcome as long as they realize there will be no attempts to convert anyone to any particular faith. Our main effort is our Relief Programs. "Relief" includes gathering and distributing food and clothing, school supplies, and other items of need by a particular Native family or tribe. It also includes a variety of items that may not be readily available to low-income Native people with limited resources. When there is a natural disaster, such as hurricanes, tornadoes or floods, we try to provide help in the form of food and clothing. We also run a resource program trying to provide educational materials such as text books, writing supplies, and instructional materials to help people get a GED. Whatever the need, we try to find the necessary resources and get them to the recipients at no cost. People helping people is our role and our goal.

    Representations of Christianity in 20th century Native American novels
    This MA thesis examines novels by Native American authors of the 20th century in regard to their representation of conflicts between the indigenous population of North America and the dominant Christian religion of the mainstream society. Several major points can be followed throughout the century, which have been presented repeatedly and discussed in various perspectives. Historical conflicts of colonization and Christianization, as well as the perpetual question of Native American Christians -- 'How can you go to a church that killed so many Indians?' [Alexie, Reservation Blues] -- are debated in these novels and analyzed in this paper.

    The Ripoff of Native American Spirituality
    This page is to discuss the borrowing of Native American spiritual rituals. This issue has become a grave and very sensitive issue to many of us. They say that imitation the sincerest form of flattery, but we don't view it this way. While I feel that learning about others views is a good thing, borrowing from our beliefs or otherwise bastardizing them is a very insulting and bad thing to do.
