Plateau Indiansby Craig A. Doherty, Katherine M. Doherty
Plateau Indians documents the lives of the
American Indian peoples live and have lived for millennia throughout the Americas. Many people think of Indians solely in the past tense, as part of history. While these groups have a long and interesting history, their contributions to American society have continued through the 20th century and into the 21st century.
Plateau Indians documents the lives of the people of this area-from their earliest history in North America and first contact with Europeans to their current achievements and struggles. Coverage includes the organization of the family, the historical importance of salmon fishing, spiritual practices, Sacajawea and the Lewis and Clark expedition, battles against Termination in the 20th century, current conditions for American Indians in the Plateau culture area, and much more. This essential volume provides students with useful information on these Native American groups.
Maps help illustrate the geography and important places of the culture area. Photographs and illustrations depict the people, animals, places, and events that were and are an essential part of the Plateau. Back matter includes a time line, a list of museums and sites, a further reading list, and an index.
