This compelling narrative takes an ethnohistorical approach to American Indian history from the arrival of humans on the continent to the present day. Balanced coverage of the political, cultural, and social aspects of Indian history provides students with a broad understanding of Eastern, Midwestern, and Western Indians. The authors use photographs and Native artifcacts to examine the impact each object had on Native life while capturing the lives of Native people through their written and spoken testimony. The People: A History of Native America demonstrates that the active participation of American Indians in a modern, democratic society has shaped-and will continue to shape-national life.
