A New Publication That Will Knock Your Socks Off!

Indians in the United States and Canada: A Comparative History, 2nd ed. by Dr. Roger Nichols

Dr. Roger Nichols book, Indians in the United States and Canada: A Comparative History, is back for a second edition! An update of the 1998 original, it has three new chapters focusing on the exciting post 1945 era. The new additions mainly elucidate the decades of Native activism since the 1964 “fishins” in Washington and Oregon. The narrative examines the motivations and tactics Indian activists used as they faced off with the government in each country. It follows their efforts to retain their land and resources, to defend long-held treaty rights, and to protect their cultural and religious practices from attacks by authorities or the general public. As it happens, the new chapters include far more social history than earlier version. They consider adoptions of Indigenous children by white families, the place of women in Native communities, the return of tribal artifacts and funeral remains, objections to sports mascots, and the impact of casino gambling on tribal societies. A great read is awaiting you in Indians in the United States and Canada: A Comparative History, 2nd ed.!
