Abstract:A central concern of the thesis is how people understand the transformative powers of the landscape and the significance of that power at the level of individual belief. I conclude with an argument that we must continue to explore how individuals mediate, reproduce, and change cultural patterns. Cultural patterns influence not only what people say, but also how they experience the landscape. Cosmological aspects of the landscape, I show, are created and recreated through experience, social interaction, memory, and narrative.
