Pub. Date:
Manitou is a supernatural power that originated in Algonquin lore in earliest times, and spread to many other North American tribal nations. As creator of all things and giver of life, Manitou can be seen as a counterpart to the Christian God. Thomas (emeritus, U. of California-Santa Barbara) takes the two figures as stalking horses for the confrontation between New World and Old World beliefs when European settlers arrived.
