Contents Notes
Indians today, the real and the unreal -- Laws and treaties -- Disastrous policy of termination -- Anthropologists and other friends -- Missionaries and the religious vacuum -- Government agencies -- Indian humor -- Red and the black -- Problem of Indian leadership -- Indians and modern society -- Redefinition of Indian affairs. "In his new preface to this paperback edition, the author observes, 'The Indian world has changed so substantially since the fiirst publication of this book that some things contained in it seem new again.' Indeed, it seems that each generation of whites and Indians will have to read and reread Vine Deloria, Jr.'s manifesto for some time to come, before we absorb his special, ironic Indian point of view and comprehend what he tells us - with a great deal of humor - about U.S. race relations, federal bureaucracies, Christian churches, and social scientists. This book continues to be required reading for all Americans, whatever their special interest."-- Page 4 of cover.
