About

Overview

American Indian Biographies, Revised Edition contains biographical sketches, ranging in length from 300 to 3,000 words, on figures in North American Indian history, extending from the arrival of European colonists on North American shores to the early twenty-first century. American Indian Biographies examines the lives of those American Indians who are the most widely studied in secondary schools, colleges, and universities. These entries profile historical religious, social, and political leaders, warriors, and reformers, as well as contemporary activists, writers, artists, entertainers, scientists, and athletes. The best-known figures in Indian history and contemporary life receive articles varying from 1,000 to 3,000 words, the longer format allowing greater biographical depth and the presentation of fuller historical and cultural context.
