Young readers will become familiar with the unique cultural traditions, tribal history, and life today for each nation.
Complete with maps, illustrations, and a detailed glossary of terms, this highly anticipated new edition includes two new chapters on the Brothertown Indian Nation and urban Indians, as well as updates on each tribe’s current history and new profiles of outstanding young people from every nation.
