The Extraordinary Book of Native American Lists by Arlene Hirschfelder, Paulette F. Molin

While Native Americans are perhaps the most studied people in our society, they too often remain the least understood and visible. Fictions and stereotypes predominate, obscuring substantive and fascinating facts about Native societies. The Extraordinary Book of Native American Lists works to remedy this problem by compiling fun, unique, and significant facts about Native groups into one volume, complete with references to additional online and print resources.

In this volume, readers can learn about Native figures from a diverse range of cultures and professions, including award-winning athletes, authors, filmmakers, musicians, and environmentalists. Readers are introduced to Native U.S. senators, Medal of Freedom winners, Medal of Honor recipients, Major League baseball players, and U.S. Olympians, as well as a U.S. vice president, a NASA astronaut, a National Book Award recipient, and a Pulitzer Prize winner. Other categories found in this book are:

Stereotypes and Myths
Tribal Government
Federal-Tribal Relations
State-Tribal Relations
Native Lands and Environmental Issues
Economic Development
Military Service and War
Native Languages
Science and Technology
Visual Arts
Literary and Performing Arts
Music and Dance
Print, Radio, and Television
Sports and Games
Exhibitions, Pageants, and Shows
Alaska Natives
Native Hawaiians
Urban Indians

Including further fascinating facts, this wonderful resource will be a great addition not only to tribal libraries but to public and academic libraries, individuals, and scholars as well.
