Praise for the previous edition:
“...recommended for large public, secondary, and college libraries. It gives straightforward initial information that might entice a college or secondary student to investigate further and find a suitable topic for a research paper.” —Booklist

“...provides[s] quick answers to many basic questions and is recommended for libraries serving lower-division undergraduates.”—Choice

“...a valuable addition to any Native American reference collection. Recommended.”—The Book Report

A fascinating, in-depth timeline of American Indian history, the expanded Chronology of American Indian History, Updated Edition describes thousands of years of events that helped shape the lives and cultures of Native Americans—as well as American society as a whole—from their ancestors' arrival in North America to the present.

Cited year-by-year, the events highlight important and interesting moments in American Indian history—both those well-known to any student of American history and those largely unfamiliar to most general readers. A completely new chapter has been added as well, covering important events that have occurred since 2000, including such information as court decisions, museum openings, protests, and cultural celebrations. This new material also presents the Indian perspective on more general events—such as the Iraq War and the Katrina disaster—that have made the past five years among the most tumultuous in American history. This edition also includes an expanded bibliography, as well as new photographs that illustrate the people, places, and events discussed in the new chapter.


Black-and-white photographs. Map. Index. Bibliography. Glossary. Cross-references.
