9780816062737: Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes (Facts on File Library of American History)

Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes, Third Edition is a fully updated reference discussing more than 200 American Indian tribes of North America, as well as prehistoric peoples and civilizations.

The informative, accessible text summarizes the historical record - locations, migrations, contacts with non-Indians, wars, and more - and includes present-day tribal affairs and issues. The book also covers traditional Indian lifeways, including diet, housing, transportation, tools, clothing, art, and rituals, as well as language families. Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes, Third Edition includes at least one representative tribe from each language family or language isolate for each of the culture areas.

About the Author:

Carl Waldman, freelance writer, has written numerous books on history and popular culture, including Atlas of the North American Indian and The Art of Magic. As the director of the Performance and Production Workshops in Cherry Valley, NY, he has worked with young musicians, visual artists, and poets. His screenplays include a Miami Vice episode for NBC and The Farmer s Wife for PBS. Also a musician, he has written numerous songs. As brother of poet Anne Waldman, author of Fast Speaking Woman, he has been privy to the New York City poetry scene since the 1960s.

From Booklist:

Although this claims to be a "fully updated" third edition of this basic work, a better description might be "expanded." This edition includes some 60 new entries, 43 of which are for tribes from California and the Northwest, among them the Bella Coola, the Puyallup, and the Washoe. The book is arranged alphabetically by tribe or group, and each entry covers the historical record--location, migrations, and wars--along with present-day tribal affairs and issues. Also included is information on tribal customs, housing, clothing, art, rituals, and food. The glossary of terms appears to be unchanged since the previous edition. The bibliography, however, has been updated with references related to the new tribal entries, among other additions. The book is well indexed, clearly presented, and easy to use, with 270 original color illustrations and maps that are both interesting and enlightening. The encyclopedia now covers 200 groups, but it still pales when compared to the four-volume Gale Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes (1999), which covers twice as many.

This volume is recommended for high-school, public library, and undergraduate collections, particularly those without the Gale work. Its added coverage will make it especially useful in libraries in California and the Pacific Northwest. Diana Shonrock
