Synopsis

Donald Fixico, one of the foremost scholars on Native Americans, details the day-to-day lives of these indigenous people in the 20th century. As they moved from living among tribes in the early 1900s to the cities of mainstream America after WWI and WWII, many Native Americans grappled with being both Indian and American. Through the decades they have learned to embrace a bi-cultural existence that continues today. In fourteen chapters, Fixico highlights the similarities and differences that have affected the generations growing up in 20th-century America. Chapters include details of daily life such as education; leisure activities & sports; reservation life; spirituality, rituals & customs; health, medicine & cures; urban life; women's roles & family; bingos, casinos & gaming. Greenwood's Daily Life through History series looks at the everyday lives of common people. This book explores the lives of Native Americans and provides a basis for further research. Black and white photographs, maps and charts are interspersed throughout the text to assist readers.

Reference features include a timeline of historic events, sources for further reading, glossary of terms, bibliography and index.

DONALD FIXICO is Distinguished Foundation Professor of History at Arizona State University. He is the author of numerous articles and several books including Termination and Relocation: Federal Indian Policy, 1945-1960 (1986), The Invasion of Indian Country in the Twentieth Century American Capitalism and Tribal Natural Resources (1998), The Urban Indian Experience in America (2000), and The American Indian Mind in a Linear World: Traditional Knowledge and American Indian Studies (2003).
