"Each detailed entry is presented in consistent rubrics that allow for easy access ... This is a valiant effort to put into some kind of order the history and current status of the native peoples of this land, at least insofar as our tribes/nations are concerned ... This is the best I've seen and I would strongly urge every school, agency, and government to have a copy on their finger-tips." -- Moccasin Print (1/1/2000)
