Product description

In this book one of America's leading writers of Indian History examines the aspirations and feelings of today's Indians-what they want and why they want it. Using the particular histories of seven Indian tribes or groups, Alvin Josephy analyzes seven principal issues in the continuing face-off between Indians and Whites: - The Indians' will to endure as Indians - Racial sterotypes that influence Whites' treatment of Indians - Indians' efforts to retain the deep spiritual basis of their lives - The fight to retain tribal land bases - Reassertion of Indian water rights - Claims to fishing and hunting rights - The modern-day quest for self-termination, sovereignty, and control of tribal affairs and resources Those themes are the major aspects of contemporary Indian affairs that are least understood by non-Indians and tend to cause continued misunderstanding and conflicts with Whites.

Brand new copy - still in plastic wrap.
