This text examines the history of North American Indians from prehistoric to present times. Students are introduced to the cultural diversity of Native Americans and are enabled to critically assess the narrow stereotype often applied. The culture clash between Native Americans and the Europeans is explored, particularly through the history of the Sioux, and the consequences for modern Americans are traced.
