A New Skin for an Old Drum: Changing Contexts of Yukon Aboriginal Bahá’í Storytelling
This article examines the construction of the religious self through the storytelling processes of Yukon Aboriginal Bahá’ís. Previous anthropological work has studied the social factors involved in the maintenance of faith amongst Aboriginal Bahá’ís. This sociological study focuses on the manner in which people put together stories to construct their contemporary Bahá’í identity. Examining recorded life histories, public stories, and archival materials, I present one perspective on how people story their religious identities in changing historical contexts.
