Summary In Crow Jesus, Clatterbuck explores contemporary Native Christianity by listening as indigenous voices narrate their own stories on their own terms. His collection tells the larger story of a tribe that has adopted Christian beliefs and practices in such a way that simple, unqualified designations of religious belonging-whether "Christian" or "Sun Dancer" or "Peyotist"--Are seldom, if ever, adequate
