Description
 
Sydele E. Golston (au). For countless generations, the Apache people have celebrated a young girl’s passage from child to woman in 4 days of splendor -- the Changing Woman Ceremony, which represents the constant re-creation of the world & the renewal of the community. Today, among some Western Apache, the tradition continues. Readers are given a privileged view into this rich & complex ceremony. Provides cultural background for each aspect of the ceremony. Songs of great happiness, festive dress & dances, blessings, prayers, bonfires, & feasts are all part of this ritual. Photos, some from earlier days, & conversations with the participants, enrich the presentation.
