Abstract
 
Description
There are hundreds of Native tribes in the Americas, and there may be thousands of misconceptions about Native Customs, culture, and history. For the first time ever, the experts of the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian have debunked the most common myths and answered the most frequently asked questions about Native Americans past and present. Inside you will discover the truth about everything from Kachina dolls to casinos, with answers to such questions as:

-Did Indians really sell Manhattan for twenty-four dollars worth of beads and trinkets?
-Do successful casino tribes help out poor tribes?
-Are dream catchers an authentic tradition?
-How does someone become a tribal chief?
