Indians of the Lower Plateau.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Washington, DC.
The history of the Lower Plateau Indians--those in the states of Nevada, Utah, and Colorado--is traced and briefly described from early tribes to the modern day Indian. The environmental transition undergone by these peoples and their cultural change, more pronounced when the United States acquired the West, are discussed. Emphasis is placed on Indian life today and the progress these Indians have made in their economy due to land use and development in the respective reservations with the help of Federal programs, legislation, and services. Various illustrations are included depicting different aspects of Indian life. (CM)
