Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this book one of Americas leading writers of Indian History examines the aspirations and feelings of todays 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.
