Editorial Reviews


"Journalist Robbins, through interviews and up-to-date historical context, reminds readers of the complexity of Native American life in contemporary America."—Margaret Heilbrun, Library Journal
(Margaret Heilbrun Library Journal 2011-06-23)

"A solid, insightful overview of the way American Indians live now."—Kirkus
(Kirkus 2011-08-15)

"Journalist Robbins creates a collage of the prospects and problems faced by Native Americans in this sharp, readable blend of history, cultural commentary, and advocacy. . . . As an illustration of modern Native American life, it effortlessly depicts politics, culture, and pride; as a first book it is a marvel."—Publishers Weekly
(Publishers Weekly)

"Sharply focused and rich in detail."—Robert Woltman, Albuquerque Journal
(Robert Woltman Albuquerque Journal 2011-11-06)

"Robbins's ability to take the all-encompassing term Indian, once used to stereotype a myriad of peoples, and show it not as a limiting factor but as describing a larger brotherhood, is inspiring. The capacity of artists and journalists from various tribes to form alliances and bring the Indian voice to the non-Indian public is a monumental step forward in understanding today’s Indian country."—Melvin Jordan, Indian Country Today
(Melvin Jordan Indian Country Today 2011-11-26)

"No single book can do more than scratch the surface of the complex contemporary lives of Native peoples. But Robbins has helpfully provided nearly 60 pages of detailed notes, along with useful lists of books, places and websites—a plethora of resources readily available to anyone willing to look beyond the popular culture's stereotypes of American Indians." Chérie Newman, High Country News
(Chérie Newman High Country News 2012-02-06)

Format: Paperback
An insightful,informative account of today's American Indians. On my next trip to the Southwest I'll focus on respect and appreciation of their culture,rather than feeling culpable about our historical mistreatment of Indians.
Thank you Catherine Robbins for changing my perspective!
