MEDIA REVIEWS
Useful for Indian studies classes and collections and for general readership. Summing Up: Recommended. All libraries/levels. * CHOICE *
This collection is a valuable compendium of historical background and contemporary perspectives on a very wide spectrum of issues and topics of concern to American Indians from an illustrious assembly of Native and other scholars and thinkers in 21st century Indian affairs. It is very pleasant, easy but immensely informative reading. This volume should be read cover to cover by anyone claiming an interest in North American Indians, past or present. -- J. Anthony Paredes, Professor Emeritus, Florida State University
Each chapter is a true jewel, with different facets and perspectives, as befits the diverse backgrounds of the presenters. This is a superb text for any American Indian Studies course.... A must for any student of historical and contemporary Indian issues, this book is also a great source of readers wanting to understand the current state of affairs of INdian nations, particularly those of the northern plains. -- Shannon D. Smith * Montana The Magazine of Western History, Spring 2009 *
In the age of Native political resurgence, American Indian Nations: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow brings together important Native voices to better understand the past and to more fully grasp the meaning of today's events, so we can more appropriately fulfill the visions of tomorrow. This book throws valuable light on important contemporary issues of American Indian nations, from identity to art and expression, from education to media, and from politics and law to environment and land. It highlights significant recent achievements of American Indians and serves as a must-read for those that view American Indian culture, history, policy, and peoples as frontiers of thought. -- Manley Begay, Director, Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management, and Policy
