Indians of Oklahoma.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
Oklahoma's present-day Indian culture and civilization, it is noted, are very much pronounced, with more than 68 tribes still proudly embracing their identities. Oklahoma is shown to be the melting pot of Indian America on a map indicating the original homelands of some of the many tribes that settled in the State. The historical development and establishment of Indian settlements within the State are outlined. A listing of Indian tribes represented in Oklahoma, a discussion of Oklahoma Indians today and Federal programs for Indians, and a list of places of interest are also included. (SW)
