About

Overview

Native American cultures and contributions predate those of the American majority, and yet they are often unfairly consigned to the peripheries of the mainstream. The longevity of many Native American traditions is testament to the strength and endurance of these societies and their perseverance in the face of trials and persecution. This penetrating series explores the ideas and cultures indigenous to the Americas and sheds light on these frequently misunderstood peoples. The narratives in these books will leave readers with a more informed understanding of the people whose stories are integral to the fabric of history.

Products Included

The Native America Sourcebook: Land, People, and Culture: Native American Culture  (ISBN-10: 1615302662 | ISBN-13: 9781615302666)

Even as contact with European cultures eroded indigenous lifestyles across North America, many Native American groups found ways to preserve the integrity of their communities through the arts, customs, languages, and religious traditions that animate Native American life. While their collective struggles against a common cause may create the semblance of a shared past, each Native American community has a unique heritage that reflects a singular history. The ancient cultural legacies that both distinguish and unite these diverse tribes are the subject of this engrossing volume.

The Native America Sourcebook: Land, People, and Culture: Native American History  (ISBN-10: 1615302654 | ISBN-13: 9781615302659)

With the advent of European colonization, the North American landscape and the indigenous cultures that inhabited it changed irrevocably. While a large part of Native Americans' past has been marked by struggles for equality and sovereignty, a survey of the early history of various tribes reveals prosperous societies that managed to live peaceably with each other and a parade of various interlopers. This volume examines the trajectory of Native American cultures over the centuries, detailing how they have retained their longstanding values and traditions in the face of war, disease, resettlement, and assimilation.
