Encyclopedia of the American Indian Movement by Bruce E. Johansen

A vivid description of the people, events, and issues that forever changed the lives of Native Americans during the 1960s and 1970s—such as the occupation of Alcatraz, fishing-rights conflicts, and individuals such as Clyde Warrior.

• Compares American Indian content to Black, Latino, and Asian civil-rights movements at the same historical era

• Relates the activities of the American Indian Movement to those of many regional groups that were active at the same time

• Draws connections between activities in the 1960s and 1970s to outcomes today, such as a ban on Navajo uranium mining, development of reservation infrastructure, and reclamation of many Native languages
