Americans are still fascinated by the romantic notion of the "noble savage," yet know little about the real Native peoples of North America. This two-volume work seeks to remedy that by examining stereotypes and celebrating the true cultures of American Indians today.
• Contributions from 47 distinguished scholars, writers, performers, and curators—both Native and non-Native—from the United States and Canada
• Photos of contemporary powwows, historical figures, indigenous architecture, and contemporary and historical art
• A comprehensive bibliography at the end of each chapter
