The Native American Almanac

(Pocket)
Beskrivelse:

Comprehensive, authoritative, and timely, here is a wide-ranging portrait of America's indigenous peoples, combining information about their history and traditions with insight into the topics that most affect their lives today. From the upheaval of first contacts to the policies of removal to contemporary issues of self-determination, this useful source book provides information on all aspects of Native American life. Each chapter of the almanac outlines a particular topic of interest, such as the history of Native-white relations, the location and status of Native American tribes, religious traditions and ceremonies, Native American language and literature, contemporary performers and artists, and more. Within each chapter, reference features highlight prominent individuals, provide up-to-date facts and figures, make suggestions for further reading, and include the names and addresses of dozens of Native American organizations, cultural centers, and points of interest. The book also contains a detailed chronology, an extensive bibliography, and more than 100 historical and contemporary drawings and photographs. For students, researchers, writers, and anyone else interested in Native American studies today, The Native American Almanac is a comprehensive look at the first Americans.
