Editorial Reviews

A collection of readings that speak to common experiences of Indian people, intended to spark discussion on the culture, histories, and contemporary issues which have shaped American Indians. Contemporary issues such as preservation of culture, religious freedom, gaming, and health are placed in their historical and cultural context. Many selections are written by American Indian scholars and journalists. Some topics include Crow kinship systems, Indian tribes and pan- Indianism in 20th century culture, and diabetes among Native Americans. The book is not indexed. Annotation c.
