Native American Spirituality

My best friend has begun being interested in the Native American Spirituality, and has had questions of it. Does anyone have any book suggestions or weblinks that I could go to to get information for her?

I'm not really sure what to search for, or even if "Native American Spirituality" is the phrase I want, (or even if its PC). How should I go about this? I think she might be thinking of the shamanic side of things however, but I am not 100% sure.

I dont know of any books but you could try googling phrases such as "Shamanic studies" or "Shamanic medicine" looking for animal guides is also a good source of information, oh and medicine wheels too xxx

I mod an Islamic forum. The admin's wife is a native American who reverted to Islam. Though the topic might be haram, she has been teaching me and is sending me stuff. If you got a question I could call and ask her.

Read, Urban Shaman. Its the best book I have read on shamanism in the modern age thus far, and is based on Hawaiian native American faith and shamanism.

I agree. Those are probably you best bets. Also, it depends on what native tribe she/he is looking at because, all of them are slightly different. Unless, she wants to learn about them all to see what they are like.

My grandmother died a Catholic and she didn't want a Catholic priest or what ever (don't know what to call them) to talk at her funeral, so we got a Native American to come. They did this whole ceremony and it was very interesting :)
