Summary note
After more than a century of poverty and repression, stoked by the example of the movement against the Vietnam War and the upheaval among black and Chicano civil-rights activists, the American Indian Movement saw Native peoples taking a stand for fishing rights, land rights, and forming resistance to coal and uranium mining on tribal land. This work tells the story of that movement, and provides the first encyclopedic treatment of this subject.
