Overview

Encyclopedia of Native American Indians is a comprehensive, accessible guide to more than 150 North American Indian nations.

Important developments in Indian political issues and cultural affairs
Increased coverage of prehistoric Indians as well as Mesoamerican civilizations
Emerging casinos in the 1990s, such as Foxwoods in the Pequot reservation in Connecticut
Recent activism, such as demonstrations at Plymouth, Massachusetts and the blockade at the Oka and Kahnawake reserves near Montreal
