Overview

Since its debut in 1996, Tiller's Guide to Indian Country has been hailed as the resource for professionals working with Native Americans. This newly expanded edition has nearly doubled in size and features an unprecedented amount of information about 562 federally recognized tribes in 33 American states.

Compiled by Dr. Veronica E. Velarde Tiller, Jicarilla Apache and historian, this comprehensive guide explores each tribe's history and modern-day life, including location and land status, government and infrastructure, community services and facilities, culture and history, economic activity, and contact information with official tribal website addresses.

Tiller's Guide to Indian Country is a must-have reference resource and is also available in a CD-rom version. It is the only work of its kind to feature Honoring Nations from Harvard University's Project on American Indian Economic Development.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The advent of on-reservation gambling has drawn the public's attention to the potential for economic development on American Indian land. As demonstrated in this well-organized guide by Tiller, an Apache scholar and author of Discover Indian Reservations USA Council Pubns., 1992, these economies are developing in a number of different arenas. Arranged alphabetically by state, entries for each reservation provide basic statistical information, including land area, labor force, educational levels, unemployment rate, and population. A brief narrative describes the reservation's culture and history, government, location, business enterprises including tourism, and community facilities. This guide updates Federal and State Reservations and Indian Trust Areas U.S. Dept. of Commerce, 1974, but librarians should realize that essentially the same book will soon be available free of charge from the Economic Development Administration under the title American Indian Reservations and Trust Areas.-Mary B. Davis, Huntington Free Lib., Bronx, N.Y.
Library Journal
Compiled by Tiller, who has written several books on Native American issues and served as a research consultant for tribes and tribal organizations in the United States and Canada, this work provides useful information on more than 500 Native American tribes located throughout the country. This update of the 1996 edition has nearly doubled in size and comprises several new features, including expanded profiles on economic development and infrastructure of these dispersed Native American communities. Each entry includes demographic and geographic information, a brief survey of history and culture, type of government, and contact information. Bottom Line Nicely designed with illustrations and a detailed and well-organized index, this outstanding volume contains the diligent research done by a large staff, who visited many of these tribes. The steep price, however, may limit its appeal to research libraries and those serving local Indian communities.-Donald Altschiller, Boston Univ. Libs. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Booknews

The emphasis is on contributions, and potential contributions, to the national economy. Includes 37 state maps, some 90 photographs, and a substantial bibliography which includes unpublished sources.
