Native America Today: A Guide to Community Politics and Culture

Front Cover
ABC-CLIO, 1999 - Social Science - 453 pages


Using an organizational scheme unique among reference works, Native America Today presents 13 mini-chapters on individual topics (e.g., Crafts, Media, Representation), each of which gives an overview of the subject and provides case studies that relate the topic to recent events in select tribal groups.

The second major section of the work is devoted to contemporary profiles of tribes and tribal groups, from Apache to Zuni, including a brief history of each, population and geographic data, form of government, and notable leaders.

A general index covers both major sections, making this guide supremely accessible. The text is further enhanced by black and white illustrations and an extensive documents section.
