Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses
While Natives’ religious traditions have been gaining significant visibility in North America in recent years, non-Native knowledge of indigenous religions has not been progressing at the same pace despite a notable increase in the number of scholarly studies undertaken over the last few decades. An analysis of 500 such studies of Native religions of Quebec produced over a period of more than a century and a half (1850 to 2003) generates the first profile to date of the nature and development of these studies and offers explanations regarding the disparities between the growing empirical and analytical data and the state of général knowledge about native religions which appears to be stagnating.
