Historians have long been aware that the encounter with Europeans affected allaspects of Native American life. But were Indians the only ones changed by these cross-culturalmeetings? Might the newcomers' ways, including their religious beliefs and practices, have also beenaltered amid their myriad contacts with native peoples? In Encounters of the Spirit, Richard W.Pointer takes up these intriguing questions in an innovative study of the religious encounterbetween Indians and Euro-Americans in early America. Exploring a series of episodes across thethree centuries of the colonial era and stretching from New Spain to New France and the Englishsettlements, he finds that the flow of cultural influence was more often reciprocal thanunidirectional.
