Paying tribute to the late Native American scholar Vine Deloria Jr., "Destroying Dogma" follows the ripples of thought set in motion by Deloria''s visionary words. This collection of essays by prominent writers and intellectuals demonstrates the breadth and influence of Deloria''s life work. While covering a diverse array of topics, such as religious freedom, evolution, and the direction of leadership in Native communities, the essays all share Deloria''s enduring notion that dogma is the enemy of critical thinking.
