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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Although there are several anthropological textbooks on Native Americans, a collection discussing contemporary sociological issues for classroom use is sorely missing. Champagne and Johnson are addressing this lack. In their two-volume collection of essays, the editors are providing a broad range of topics facing Native American communities at this time. -- Annette Kuhlmann, (University of Wisconsin, Baraboo) * Journal Of Ethnic History *
These two volumes (with Contemporary Native American Political Issues, ed. Johnson) succeed in conveying the complexity of Native American needs and the cultural context in which they are embedded. -- Niels W. Braroe, (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) * Practicing Anthropology, Vol. 22 No. 3 *
