THE BLACK AND RED ATLANTIC. For many indigenous peoples of Africa and America the Atlantic basin has been pivotal to the circulation of religious ideas, technologies, bodies, ritual objects, and sacred knowledges. Our session will, therefore, explore the Atlantic as a central site for the proliferation and even re-imagination of indigenous religious identities, communities, material cultures, and knowledge systems. We encourage papers that examine the relationship between Black and Red Atlantic religious communities and/or that probe the significance of the Atlantic to the formation of particular indigenous communities and their respective religious traditions, practices, and philosophies.
