Native peoples of the United States and Canada have rich histories and traditions that help them maintain varied cultural identities in modern society. In the past, white Americans attempted to hide or eradicate these cultures. Today we know that they should instead be celebrated. The artifacts and customs of these early civilizations are presented to readers through full-color photographs and primary sources, and a detailed timeline places historical events in chronological order. Readers will enjoy learning about the vibrant past of cultures that are still active today.
