Sandpaintings of the Navaho Shootingway and the Walcott collection by Leland Clifton Wyman( Book )

17 editions published between 1970 and 1973 in English and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A brief account of the Navaho and their ceremonial system ("religion") and practice of ritual, with its sanctioning mythology, provides background for the discussion of the sandpaintings of the Shootingway chantway, its Mountain-Shootingway phase, and its Evilway ritual. A short section on the mythology of the male and female branches of Shootingway relates its major mythic motifs to the following account of the symbols and designs of its sandpaintings. Special attention is given to the rarely performed Sun's House phase of male Shootingway and the double sandpainting, Sky-reaching Rock, the most elaborate of all sandpainting designs, which is especially associated with this phase. Finally, there is a detailed descriptive catalog of the 28 reproductions of Navaho sandpaintings in the Mrs. Charles D. Walcott collection, now in the United States National Museum."--Abstract, p.v
Blessingway by Leland Clifton Wyman( Book )

In 1961, the University of Arizona received the manuscripts and field notes of Father Herard Haile, a Franciscan missionary, who served actively among the Indians for 54 years. Among the materials were the notes and typed pages of the Blessingway Ceremonial of Navajo Indians. After the death of Father Haile, the University of Arizona selected Dr. Leland C. Wyman--distinguished physiologist, biologist, anthropologist, folklorist, and writer--to edit the Blessingway manuscript for publication. The book contains 3 versions of the Blessingway Ceremonial as told to Father Haile by Slim Curly, Frank Mitchell, River Junction Curly, and Little Big Water (informant x). Included in the book are tables explaining major mythic motifs of Blessingway, monsters, reproductions of Blessingway dry paintings, and symbols of Blessingway dry paintings. (Ej)
