The Inside Guide: Celebrating Native American Cultures

After many Native Americans were forced from their ancestral lands and pressured to assimilate, much of their rich cultural heritage was at risk. But these peoples continued many of their customs, some of which have survived today. These well-researched volumes shed light on aspects of Native American cultures, both past and contemporary, that will help readers connect them to their own lives, such as celebrations, clothing, and food, with carefully chosen photographs to accompany and enrich the text. Readers will also learn about the diversity of native peoples and how the different regions they called home necessitated diverse methods of survival.
