Who is an Indian? Who is a Native American? What are Indian self-determination and sovereignty? What defines an Indian tribe?

These and more than one hundred other questions are asked and answered in this critically acclaimed overview of Indian country. The second edition of Jack Utter's classic work covers the hottest issues facing Indians today: tribal sovereignty, gaming, water rights, treaty rights, cultural rights, and the evolving history of federal Indian policy.

Revised and updated with many new questions, eight new illustrations, historical and contemporary maps, three hundred new references, and informative tables, American Indians is the best single source available today on a multitude of Indian country issues, past and present.
