THE PEOPLE: A HISTORY OF NATIVE AMERICA takes an ethnographic approach to American Indian history from the arrival of humans on the American continent to the present day. The narrative provides balanced coverage of political, economic, cultural, and social aspects of Indian history. While conveying the effects of European invasion on American Indian communities, the authors give greater attention to the impact of Native actions on the American environment. Their Indian-centered point of view treats Indians as actors in their own right, existing in a larger society. THE PEOPLE demonstrates that the active participation of American Indians in a modern, democratic society has shaped -- and will continue to shape -- national life.
