Looking for the names of any texts that can be considered a bible for native american religions, animism, shamanism, early wicca, fae, and pantheism

Im a theology buff and it seems that there are no central books for any of these practices outside of bullshit from the new age section written by a bald man who likes cats

you're a pretty shitty theology buff if you're doing that

I'm going to expand on that because otherwise you'll get upset and feel like I'm wrong for telling you you're a shitty theology buff without explaining why and you're somehow justified in being one: basically only the abrahamic religions revolve around central texts. It's pretty basic stuff that anyone describing themselves as a theology buff should definitely know.

Yes in terms of a holy or single important text.
I mean to included texts that are just of high value to the practice. Wasnt implying what you thought I meant

Dude I could literally name books with the word "bible" in the title that do not qualify as such.

There are none. I don't think you understand how difficult it is to establish a textual canon. You need to:
  1. Have a complex writing system,
  2. Be unified as a culture enough for a set of common beliefs to be distilled from various folk practices,
  3. Be centralized enough as a society for one book to be established as canon to the exclusion of other books,
  4. Not have your culture be stamped out by Christian missionaries,
  5. Avoid genocide,
  6. Feel the need to write all this down when oral culture is better.

The closest you're going to find to what you want is the Eddas and the Aztec codices. The Eddas are a guide to LARPing as an Icelandic pagan that got written about a hundred years after the actual pagans were all dead, and the Aztec codices are a bunch of incomprehensible picture books. Bon appetit, retard.

For the sake of being constructive, I should add:
There's a good number of any of those still around, so if you want to learn, you'd be better off asking someone who actually practices than dicking around at a library.

In the Koran, Christians and Jewish people are called "the people of the book", and you are forbidden to mess with them or try to convert them because they are already worshipping God... it's kind of a defining feature of those 3 religions that they are dogmatic and set their stuff in stone, where as proper religions are flexible and when you destroy them they reimmerge again because they are inextricably linked to the culture where they originate from, can't exist outside that culture, and will never die as long as that culture exists. The bible, the torah, and the Koran need to be written down because they are spread to all different cultures and have no connection to reality

Whew what is even going on here.
I´m not sure you did your work though OP, Wicca is not that old, and you should have gotten some leads without even leaving the first page of googles search results.

That's an interesting perspective. What then would you classify as a culturally bound religion? Like Shinto or Confucianism? Hawaiian ancestor veneration? Genuinely curious.

You and I both know those people didn't write books so why are you asking for them? Check out "The Falling Sky" by Davi Kopenawa Yanomami it's the closest thing to what you want.

ya'll niggas are dumb. like, did you all forget that you don't need to be a believer in a religion to document and write about that religion?
Snorri Sturluson is a major source of our understanding of norse religion, yet he was a christian living in a christian country.
OP's question isn't that outlandish. all it would require is some outsider spending some time with some native americans and writing down their stories while getting high as shit around the campfire.

sorry OP I can't help you. the only "native american" religious text I've read so far is the Popol Vuh. It's pretty wild and unique.

If OP is still here and looking for books:

Black Elk Speaks was Black Elk's sharing of the Lakota people's culture and beliefs. He shared these things in hopes that they would be saved for posterity. It is his life story as a medicine man and events surrounding the Wounded Knee Massacre. So it doesn't start with something like the world was created by the gods in this way over 7 days, or whatever. It's okay and I think the best you'll get about most Native Americans beliefs.

When I was a child my mom bought me a book called Brother Eagle, Sister Sky. It was just a Native American story, but it seemed to be describing how their existential beliefs function. I think they had a very oral tradition, told around the camp fire. Could be wrong, mang.
