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
