Nevada Indians Speak.
Forbes, Jack D., Ed.
The anthology presents Indian works which reflect the attitudes of the native Indian people of the State of Nevada, commencing with the possible first White-Indian contact in the 1820's when Anglo American fur trappers and Mexican traders entered the Great Basin. The writer points out in the Preface that no effort has been made to exclude native letters or speeches which might be considered derogatory toward the Indian. Actual photographs of Indians are interspersed throughout the document, along with a "representative selection of Indian material" which portrays the Nevada Indian experience as objectively as possible. Insofar as is possible, the language, spelling, and punctuation of the original sources have been preserved. The document is divided into 5 parts: (1) Tavido! The White Man Arrives; (2) Warfare and Conquest; (3) Rebellions, Reservations, and Broken Promises; (4) The Long Struggle; and (5) The Present and the Future. (EL)
