Handbook of Native American Studies and Chronology of Native American History.
Forbes, Jack D.; And Others
Intended as "a practical guide to the development of Native American Studies programs, Native American Studies courses, and Indian-oriented higher education programs," this handbook places emphasis upon materials actually utilized in the development of Native American Studies at the University of California, Davis, and in the creation of Deganawidah-Quetzalcoatl University. Chapter headings are "Native American Studies and Ethnic Studies;""Autonomy or Integration: Structural Arrangements for Native American Studies Programs;""Materials Utilized in the Development of Native American Studies at the University of California, Davis;""Selections from the Brief Proposal for Deganawidah-Quetzalcoatl University; "Thoughts on the Development of Programs at Deganawidah-Quetzalcoatl University;" and "Sample Courses and Course Outlines." Also included is a 111-page chronology of Native American history (with emphasis on the U.S.) from 100,000 B.P. (Before the Present) to April 1971. Although it is noted that the chronology represents only a beginning in the vast effort to record the facts of Native American development, it is hoped that the chronology will be useful to instructors in Indian history and that it will serve as a beginning point for a more complete chronology.
