Summary
Rituals are important in many contexts, including disaster responses. This book explores related topics that are important for the contemporary situations of peoples faced with environmental challenges or disasters, and more generally for their cultural ideas about dancing and decorations as indications of well-being and fertility in their life-patterns. Combining the study of environmental issues with the aesthetics of shamanistic healing and the cosmic significance of ritual practices, Diaspora, disasters, and the cosmos exemplifies the inner-relations of cultural patterns in the lives of indigenous people in the Pacific and elsewhere
