How might modern religion benefit from indigenous religious?
Indigenous religions usually help their participants get closer to nature.
The Catholic church has been very successful incorporating elements of indigenous religion and custom to make converts in Third World countries.
I will never forget a religious Last Supper painting in a Peruvian cathedral that I toured recently, in which Christ and his disciples were dining on roast guinea pig.
Beyond that, the search for Truth, which is what a Theologian would define as some universal reality we all experience as humans, is something that is a large commonality among all religious groups.
We learn a lot about our own religious quest by understanding the quest of others.
