One of the reasons I bring this up (the spiritual movement in hunting) is that I do have some personal experience (family and close friends) in the area of Native American culture. I am no expert by any means and welcome any comments but one of the comments that has been made to me (on more than one occasion) was that whites (or Europeans, take your pick) have hijacked aspects of Native American culture as a replacement for parts of their culture that has been lost because of religious pressures. Is it possible that we are seeing this desire to incorporate Native American (and other aboriginal peoples) belief systems into ours because our own culture (white, Anglo-Saxon, Judeo-Christian) has become determined to separate us from nature?
Tough subject to think about isn't it?
