Inside the Native American Rights Movement
Eyewitness to History
The history of Native Americans within the United States is a turbulent one, marked by broken promises, confiscated lands, forced acculturation, and the shadowy line between tribal sovereignty and American citizenship. Native Americans and their allies have had to fight for their rights, rights that other Americans were guaranteed under the Constitution. This significant book recounts the past and modern-day battles for Native American civil rights using the eyewitness reports of people on the front lines. Striking photographs, thought-provoking sidebars and fact boxes, and a summarizing timeline are included in the engaging design.
