This guide to Native American history and culture outlines new ways of understanding American Indian cultures in contemporary contexts. Native American Studiescovers key issues such as the intimate relationship of culture to land; the nature of cultural exchange and conflict in the period after European contact; the unique relationship of Native communities with the United States government; the significance of language; the vitality of contemporary cultures; and the variety of Native artistic styles, from literature and poetry to painting and sculpture to performance arts. This thematic approach places history, culture, and intellectual production in the contexts of politics and power. Using specific examples throughout the book, the authors portray the culture of Native Americans from the viewpoints of Native people as well as from those of non-Native Americans.

Alan Velie is David Ross Boyd Professor of English at the University of Oklahoma. Author of several books including American Indian Literature (The University of Oklahoma Press, 1979; revd edn, 1991) and Native American Perspectives on Literature and History (The University of Oklahoma Press, 1995).
