Ceremony is told in third-person narration from the perspective of a limited omniscient narrator. While the narration generally follows Tayo's perspective (the protagonist), it occasionally switches to the perspective of other characters.
Ceremony is narrated in past tense.
The title, Ceremony, refers to Native American traditions marking transitions. The protagonist, Tayo, must create a new ceremony that synthesizes the Native American and white cultures to transform his life and find acceptance within his community.
