Abstract
 
Description
Designed as a brief survey for students and general readers, "American Indians in U.S. History" addresses the histories of tribes throughout the entire United States. Offering insight into broad national historical patterns, this book explores the wide variety of tribes and relates many fascinating stories of individual and tribal determination, resilience, and long-term success. Charting Indian history in roughly chronological chapters, Roger L. Nichols presents the central issues tribal leaders faced during each era and demonstrates that, despite their frequently changing status, American Indians have maintained their cultures, identities, and many of their traditional lifeways. Far from vanishing or disappearing into the melting pot, American Indians have struggled for sovereignty and are today a larger, stronger part of the U.S. population than they have been in several decades.
