Description

This handbook is a pocket-sized reference to the great heritage and culture of American Indians. Despite decades of poor treatment, many tribes and leaders have remained strong. It is in this spirit that this book was created. It is now time to remind us all - red, white, yellow, black or brown - of the things that American Indians should be proud of. Includes important historical events, sacred and cultural practices, quotes from respected leaders past and present, and a detailed time-line involving modern activists. Issues that continue to threaten American Indian culture are addressed, along with potential answers. Also includes sections on books and films that have been favorable to American Indians, an excellent photo section, and a list of American Indian rights organizations. The small size of this handbook makes it easy to carry daily and to share with others.show more

Review quote

We loved "The Legacy of Wisdom" by Bill Marder because it is a handy mini-encyclopedia of the American Indian. Well written and accurate. A really nice find. -Lee Standing Bear, Manatakashow more
