"Most authorities on Indigenous spirituality write about ceremonies and rituals, totems and dreamings and their social implications. It is a materialist view of what spirituality is, and although they speak about 'religion', they do not seem very concerned about the deep innermost feelings which give rise to religion in the first place."
