Come Dance With Me
This book explores interculturation of Anishinaabe Roman Catholic faith through a mutually respectful and culturally appropriate dialogue process.
It is an invitation: an invitation to dance across the circular plane of the medicine wheel, a framework for Anishinaabe Catholic interculturation of faith. This rhythm of the dance is a means of healing, integrity, transformation, and reconciliation. The invitation, “Come dance with me,” reflects the invitation of the Cosmic Christ to all creation.
In Come Dance with Me, Sr. Eva offers her readers an important prophetic message based on her spiritual journey. Her life reflects a deep understanding of her Anishinaabe roots and the gifts they render to the Catholic worldview.—Deacon Harry Lafond, Plains Cree
Come Dance with Me affirms Sr. Eva’s fundamental insight about the need for Indigenous peoples who are Catholic to contribute to faith dialogue from a truly Indigenous perspective. At this transformational threshold lies a deeply Indigenous Catholic perspective.—Sheila Smith, rscj, Ph.D.
Sr. Eva Solomon’s experience-based book using the Medicine Wheel for Anishinabe-Catholic interculturation is exactly what the Catholic Church in Canada needs now to be our best selves.—Peter Bisson, S.J., Jesuits of Canada
Sr. Eva Solomon’s invitation to Anishinaabe medicine wheel practice is a powerful witness to the interculturation of faith, with particular resonance for those of us of hybrid religious identity. Gift for the people of God! —Joanne Doi MM, Associate Professor of Intercultural Theologies, Catholic Theological Union
