The Indian in America's Past.
Forbes, Jack D., Ed.
When the first Europeans arrived in America the natives were not a uniform group, but the result of ancient inter-ethnic relations. Indian tribes were divided into a number of diverse linguistic and cultural groups having distinctive physical characteristics. The dynamics of further inter-ethnic relations are explored in this book by examining the interactions of Americans, Europeans, and Africans in the United States. The effect of the interactions on native Americans is studied in depth through speeches of individuals involved in the historical events cited. Differences in attitudes and modes of living and the resulting social problems are illustrated. The reactions of the natives are related in their own words. Two chapters deal with the United States policy toward the Native American from 1789 to 1963. (DB)
