Description
Native Americans make up less than one per cent of the total U.S. population yet represent half the nation's languages and cultures. This concise study of Native American society, culture, and religion surveys everything from the land-based spirituality of early creation myths to the 88 uses known to the Sioux for the flesh and bones of the buffalo, and the acceptance of Two-Spirit individuals (a third gender possessing male and female traits, formerly called berdache) in cultures across North America. A chronology covers such events as their early entry into North America, out of the now-submerged continent of Beringia; the "forgotten wars" of the 16th and 17th centuries that wiped out many East Coast tribes; and the last struggles of the Cheyenne and the Comanche against the U.S. Army.
