Abstract:

"The authors offer seven intriguing essays discussing a variety of topics relative to today's American Indian. They argue that many aspects of Indian identity exist among the numerous tribes of North America and that no one tribe or person personifies what that identity is today. Indeed, there are many elements of American Indian identity, and the editor has skillfully assembled a fine collection of original works which examine this significant question. Topics included in this short volume range from cowboys to pickups and from Indian education to middle class Indian America. This is a lively book filled with provocative ideas. It will be of interest to anyone who wishes to understand American Indians today" -- Back cover.
