Tracking the Indigenous Sacred, Chidester-style
The article evaluates David Chidesterâ€™s Wild religion (2012) for what it teaches us about tracking and studying the â€˜indigenous sacredâ€™ in contemporary South Africa, and, by extension, in Africa more generally, and the diaspora. By adopting a more dynamic and open-ended approach to religion as a set of resources and strategies, Chidester provides critical insights on the production, appropriation, and interpretation of indigenous religious myths and rituals in the post-apartheid setting.
