Native Americans of California and Nevada: A Handbook.
Forbes, Jack D.
A history of the development of American Indians and American Indian cultures is presented with emphasis on the geographic areas of California and Nevada. The effects of Spanish, Mexican, and Anglo occupations on the Native American are discussed. The document is designed to provide an introduction to the evolution of American Indians in relation to those historical-cultural experiences which probably contributed to the contemporary conditions of native communities and individuals. An historical review of Indian education is presented with suggestions for improvement and greater relevance of curriculum, environment, and staffing. A guide to resource materials is included. (JH)
