The New Indians.
Steiner, Stan
Nineteen short vignettes depicting recent incidents involving various forms of aggressiveness and nationalism on the part of Indians are employed by the author to suggest a modern American Indian renaissance, led primarily by articulate, and at times militant, Indian youth who are dissatisfied with the manner in which the American Indian is still being treated in this country. An incident sited is the reaction of Indian youth to an American Indian conference held at the University of Chicago in 1960 which was led primarily by elder tribal leaders. The manner in which intertribal direct action was taken in response to State Supreme Court decisions that confined net fishing by Indians to their reservations, and other reactions of Indians to events in their lives are cited. A primary focus of the Indian renaissance is the education of Indian youth through the college level in order that they might effectively initiate Indian self-determination on their own terms. (EV)
