    DescriptionThis book provides the first comprehensive history of the Native Peoples of North America from their arrival in the western hemisphere to the present. It describes how Native Peoples have dealt with the environmental diversity of North America and have responded to the different European colonial regimes and national governments that have established themselves in recent centuries. It also examines the development of a pan-Indian identity since the nineteenth century and provides a unique comparison not found in other histories of how Native Peoples have fared in Canada and the United States.

    This volume, published in two parts, provides the first comprehensive history of the Native peoples of North America from their arrival in the western hemisphere to the present. It describes how indigenous peoples have dealt with the environmental diversity of North American and have responded to the different European colonial regimes and national governments that have established themselves in recent centuries. It also examines the development of a pan-Indian identity since the nineteenth century and provides a comparison not found in other histories of how native peoples have fared in Canada and the United States.
