Atlas of the Indian Tribes of the Continental United States and the Clash of Cultures
The Atlas identifies of the Native American tribes of the United States and chronicles the conflict of cultures and Indians' fight for self-preservation in a changing and demanding new word. The Atlas is a compact resource on the identity, location, and history of each of the Native American tribes that have inhabited the land that we now call the continental United States and answers the three basic questions of who, where, and when. Regretfully, the information on too many tribes is extremely limited. For some, there is little more than a name.
The history of the American Indian is presented in the context of America's history-its westward expansion, official government policy and public attitudes. By seeing something of who we were, we are better prepared to define who we need to be.
The Atlas will be a convenient resource for the casual reader, the researcher, and the teacher and the student alike. A unique feature of this book is a master list of the varied names by which the tribes have been known throughout history.
