American Indian Tribes


I have always been fascinated by Indians and their culture so I enjoyed reviewing this 2-volume set of books located in our reference section. They would be great for reports or projects or if you just like to learn as I do. Volume 1 starts with a section on the Culture Areas of North America. It has maps where each section is located, the names of the tribes within them and information about each area. The next section is Tribes and Traditions. It lists each tribe by alphabetical order giving specific information on each. There are facts on more than 300 tribes. Volume 2 contains a listing of tribes beginning with Miw-Z and the Appendixes. In the Appendixes is a list of Reservations in North America and Canada, Festivals and Pow-wows by state, a Time Line and more. The next time you have a question concerning Indians in North America, you'll have to check out this resource!
