Prothero begins and ends his chapter on Navajo religion with discussions of Navajo religion and the law. The Moodle articles by Dallas (“How Religious Freedom Law Fails Native Americans”) and Kapoor, (“Lithium Mining . . .”) provide further examples and discussion.

How does this conflict drive us back to very basic questions of the definition and characteristics of religion?
