With the advent of European colonization, the North American landscape and the indigenous cultures that inhabited it changed irrevocably. While a large part of Native Americans' past has been marked by struggles for equality and sovereignty, a survey of the early history of various tribes reveals prosperous societies that managed to live peaceably with each other and a parade of various interlopers. This volume examines the trajectory of Native American cultures over the centuries, detailing how they have retained their longstanding values and traditions in the face of war, disease, resettlement, and assimilation.
