About

Overview

This important new reference work examines the world’s indigenous peoples, their societies and cultures, the countries in which they reside, and the issues that affect their ways of life. It also highlights the complex relationships between native groups and the natural environments in which they live. Native Peoples of the World serves both as a primer for students wishing to learn about the world’s indigenous societies and as a ready-reference for historical and contemporary information on nearly 400 specific groups (organized by region), 80 nations, and 50 contemporary issues and institutions. Sidebars highlight notable individuals, events, sites, and ideas. Essential primary documents, recommended further readings, a Master Bibliography, a selection of Web links, and a colorful collection of images enhance the coverage.
