From ancient rock drawings to today’s urban living, the Native American Almanac: More than 50,000 Years of the Cultures and Histories of Indigenous Peoples traces the rich heritage of indigenous people. It is a fascinating mix of biography, pre-contact and post-contact history, current events, Tribal Nations’ histories, enlightening insights on environmental and land issues, arts, treaties, languages, education, movements, and more. Ten regional chapters, including urban living, cover the narrative history, the communities, land, environment, important figures, and backgrounds of each area’s Tribal Nations and peoples. The stories of 345 Tribal Nations, biographies of 400 influential figures in all walks of life, Native American firsts, awards, and statistics are covered. 150 photographs and illustrations bring the text to life. The most complete and affordable single-volume reference work about Native American culture available today, the Native American Almanac is a unique and valuable resource devoted to illustrating, demystifying, and celebrating the moving, sometimes difficult, and often lost history of the indigenous people of America. Capturing the stories and voices of the American Indian of yesterday and today, it provides a range of information on Native American history, society, and culture.

While Native American communities remain culturally innovative and continue to struggle for survival, researchers, teachers, and students lack texts that both represent the breadth of contemporary experiences and look toward the future. Editor Duane Champagne has assembled a volume of top scholarship reflecting the complexity and diversity of Native American cultural life. Section introductions provide background and analyses of the issues. Informative and critical studies offer experiences and perspectives from a variety of Native settings. This book and its companion volume, Contemporary Native American Political Issues, edited by Troy R. Johnson, are ideal teaching tools and resources for anyone working in or with Native communities.

Social Change and Cultural Continuity Among Native Nations

Author: Duane Champagne

Publisher: Rowman Altamira

ISBN: 9780759110014

Category: Social Science

Page: 362

View: 9851

The book defines the broad parameters of social change for Native Nations in the 21st century, as well as their prospects for cultural continuity. It will be an excellent resource for use in sociology, ethnic studies or Native American studies classes. Champagne teaches with his collection for a course that usually has 100-140 students each term. Many of the themes Champagne tackles are of general interest in the study of social change, from governmental, economic, religious, and environmental perspectives. Issues of cultural continuity are central to Native American studies programs, and the book would be valuable for use in introductory courses in Native American studies, but is designed for graduate students and undergraduates, especially in Indian studies.
