Ceremony

Yellow Woman and a Beauty of the Spirit is written with the fire of necessity. Silko’s call to be heard is unmistakable; there are stories to remember, injustices to redress, ways of life to preserve.

Description

Thirty years since its original publication, Ceremony remains one of the most profound and moving works of Native American literature. The novel is itself a ceremony of healing.

Tayo, a World War II veteran of mixed ancestry, returns to the Laguna Pueblo Reservation. He is deeply scarred by his experience as a prisoner of the Japanese. He is further wounded by the rejection he encounters from his people. Only by immersing himself in native ceremonies and tradition can he begin to regain the peace that was taken from him. Masterfully written, filled with the somber majesty of Pueblo myth, Ceremony is a work of enduring power.
