“This reference guide catalogs the Native peoples living from the Pacific Ocean to the Rocky Mountains, and from British Columbia to California. Organized in alphabetical order, the third edition provides updated and informative entries on 150 tribes, reporting on their location, history, cultural traditions and demographics. This new edition delves more deeply into mixed tribal affiliations and reports on the reassertion of identity by some tribes that had been described in earlier editions as extinct! The guide contains updates on several tribes’ recent efforts at self-determination, federal recognition, and economic development. Updated reading lists and a new emphasis on Native voices make this a valuable reference.”—from a review in The Bellingham Herald
