Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bringing a fresh perspective to multicultural studies, Greaves illuminate the current situation of 13 traditional peoples in the United States and Canada. These are small tribal groups, ethnic groups with a unique way of life, new immigrants, and refugees with strong roots in war-torn homelands. A broad diversity of cultures is presented, including the Lummi in Washington State, the African Americans in the coastal zone of Georgia, the Amish of Lancaster County, and the Hmong in Wisconsin.

Book News Annotation:

Thirteen essays consider the issues of cultural survival for tribal groups, tradition-bound ethnic groups, immigrants, and refugees in the United States and Canada. Among the groups represented are the Chemehuevis, the Crow, the Eastern Shoshone, the Gitxsan and Witsuwit'en, the Hopi, the Lummi, the Onodowaga, the Wanapum, the Amish, the Hmong, the Maya, and Sicilian fishing families. Contributors are anthropologists, archivists, historians, scholars of religion and First Nations studies, and members of the groups discussed.
