AbstractThe Psychotherapeutic Effects of American Indian Traditions Such As Singing, Drumming, Dancing and Storytelling is a thesis comparing the Western Psychotherapeutic view of these activities with the American Indian Literature concerning those artistic actions as well as the American Indian oral tradition and healing ceremonies of the Tlingit, Iroquois, and Sioux and some other Tribes of North American. At different times, some more historic, the two cultural views appear to have many similar psychotherapeutic analyses attesting to the healing qualities of singing, drumming, dancing, and storytelling.
