In this innovative, performative approach to the expressive culture of the Yaqui (Yoeme) peoples of the Sonora and Arizona borderlands, David Delgado Shorter provides an altogether fresh understanding of Yoeme worldviews. Based on extensive field study, Shorter's interpretation of the community's ceremonies and oral traditions as forms of "historical inscription" reveals new meanings of their legends of the Talking Tree, their narrative of myth-and-history known as the Testamento, their fabled deer dances, funerary rites, and church processions.

From earliest childhood Heather Valencia had vivid, precognitive dreams. In one of them, she would travel to a pre-Columbian world to join a mysterious, powerful spiritual leader. When she grew older, Heather married and raised a son, but her dreams continued and she found herself increasingly drawn to the desert of southern Arizona. Finally she decided to travel there, particularly to witness the colorful and famous Easter deer dance ceremony, and when she did, she met the mysterious figure of her dreams. This is the true story of Heather Valencia's journey to Yaqui, and her experiences with Anselmo Valencia, the spiritual leader of the Yaqui people and Heather's future husband. Heather describes her passionate love affair with Anselmo, her discovery of the rich Yaqui spiritual tradition under Amselmo's guidance, her otherworldly spiritual explorations, and her mystical activities with the powerful circle of Dreaming Women.

Westerners tend to equate political action with revolution and open criticism, leading to concerns that the less outspoken citizens of nonliberal societies are brainwashed, complicit, or paralyzed by fear.
