Native American Pentecostals

29 Apr

Choosing the Jesus Way is something all readers of U.S. Religion Blog should have on their shelves or in their Kindle.

Angela Tarango is a native of Whittier, California, double major in religion and history, with honors in the religion major; graduated cum laude from Wellesley College, MTS from Harvard Divinity School and PhD from Duke University in 2009. Specializes in American religious history, specifically modern Native American religious history in the 20th and 21st centuries. Currently an assistant professor of religion at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas where I teach American religious history, history of Christianity, and Latino/a, Afro-American and Afro-Caribbean, and Native American religions traditions.

So starts Arlene Sanchez-Walsh’s interview (at Religion in American History) with religion scholar Angela Tarango about her book on Native American Pentecostals, Choosing the Jesus Way.

For the rest of the interview, and a bit about Tarango’s current project about a Navajo tribal chairman who was also Christian Reformed, see here: Religion in American History: Under The Radar: Interviews with Historians You Should Know.
