Contemporary Native American cultural issues
While Native American communities remain culturally innovative and continue to struggle for survival, researchers, teachers, and students lack texts that both represent the breadth of contemporary experiences and look toward the future. Editor Duane Champagne has assembled a volume of top scholarship reflecting the complexity and diversity of Native American cultural life. Section introductions provide background and analyses of the issues. Informative and critical studies offer experiences and perspectives from a variety of Native settings. This book and its companion volume, Contemporary Native American Political Issues, edited by Troy R. Johnson, are ideal teaching tools and resources for anyone working in or with Native communities.
