Description: Dispelling myths, answering questions, and stimulating thoughtful avenues for further inquiry, this highly readable reference provides a wealth of specific information about all known North American Indians. Readers will delight in the stirring narratives about everything from notable leaders and relations with non-natives; to customs, dress, dwellings, and weapons; to government and religion. Addressing over 200 groups of Native Americans in Canada and the United States, this book is at once exhaustive yet readable, covering myriad aspects of a people spread across ten geographical regions.

Listed alphabetically for easy access, each Native American group is presented in careful detail, starting with the tribal name and followed by significant facts about the group's location, population, history, and culture. Barry Pritzer also addresses current information on each group's government, economy, legal status, and reservations. Engaging and precise, Pritzer's prose makes this extensive work an enjoyable read, whether he is giving the court interpretation of the term "tribe" or describing how a Shoshone woman served as a guide on the Lewis and Clark expedition.

In light of past and ongoing injustices and the momentum of Indian and Inuit self-determination movements, an understanding of these native cultures as well as their contributions to contemporary society becomes increasingly important. This book provides all the essential information a student, scholar, or general reader needs to fully grasp the history, culture, and current feelings surrounding North American Indians.
