This seems to be a very apropos example. I can think of no group of people who would be more unlikely to consider themselves atheists than indigenous Americans. Were I to meet a surgeon of Cheyenne descent who happened to confide in me that he were an atheist, I would in fact find it strange.

I realize that you are simply trying to point out to me that a tribe is a tribe is a tribe. But an atheist of Cheyenne descent is, to me, as discordant as an atheist of Jewish descent.
