The American Indian Today.
Levine, Stuart, Ed.; Lurie, Nancy Oestreich, Ed.
A nationalistic movement among the American Indians is the focal point of this document. The renewed desire among Indians for economic self-development and increased ethnic distinctiveness is pointed out. The document refers to the new movement as the "Indian Renascence" and notes that it is most evident in the development of a stronger tribal government and pan-Indian (an expression of a new identity) political organization. Several tribes throughout the nation are pointed out as cases in point in the movement. Historical background of the Indian is given, and his relationship with the Federal Government through the Bureau of Indian Affairs is reviewed. In conclusion, a brief resume is given on each of the 13 authors whose work was contributory to this document. (EL)
