9780160803888: Handbook of North American Indians, Volume 2, Indians in Contemporary Society

Volume 2 provides a basic reference work on Indians and Arctic peoples as a continuing element in a changing and sometimes difficult environment responding to the social forces around them, making such accommodations as circumstances require, but remaining identifiably Indian in a contemporary society.

This is part of the Smithsonian Institution’s Handbook of North American Indians series, the ultimate resource for Native American history across various regions of North America. The set is intended to give an encyclopedic summary of what is know about the prehistory, history, and cultures of the aboriginal peoples of North America north of the urban civilizations of central Mexico.

Researchers, especially students in middle grades and above may find this resource useful for writing papers related to topics of North American Indians and multicultural topics.   U.S. public, middle school, high-school, community college, and 4-year academic college and universities may want to have the entire Handbook of North American Indians  series available for their minorites, and social science reference collections.
