SUMMARY

Media filters and personal preconceptions can make it hard to get a clear view of present-day Indian America. The reality is that the 500+ Native nations in the United States confront many of the same day-to-day challenges that are faced by other nations and communities--raising children withstrong identities, practicing religion, providing economic sustenance, strengthening culture, managing business and governmental affairs, and protecting public health and safety--but they are doing so from foundations built on their distinct histories, cultures, and circumstances. The State of theNative Nations: Conditions under U.S. Policies of Self-Determination chronicles the efforts, obstacles, and accomplishments that are shaping Indian Country under contemporary federal policies and responsive tribal strategies of self-determination. In The State of the Native Nations, The Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development brings together scholars and Native leaders to produce the most comprehensive, cohesive interdisciplinary study available on current conditions and trends in Indian Country. Broad in scope andthematically organized, the volume features twenty-three chapters covering issues ranging from tribal governance, land and natural resources, and economic and social development, to arts and culture, the large off-reservation Native population, and federal Indian policy. Fourteen accompanying essaysbring to life the personal perspectives of noted national leaders in Native affairs. The result is invaluable insight into the universal challenges of creating resilient, sustained, and self-determined communities. Features:ulliBalances first-person accounts and field findings with extensive and up-to-date data and factsliEmphasizes the critical issues of Native self-determination and nation-buildingliPuts contemporary issues in their historical and policy contextsliIntegrates case studies that highlightsuccessful examples of the practice of Native nation self-determination/ulJonathan B. Taylor is the author of 'The State of the Native Nations: Conditions under U.S. Policies of Self-Determination', published 2007 under ISBN 9780195301267 and ISBN 0195301269.
