The people of Denendeh : ethnohistory of the Indians of Canada's Northwest Territories by June Helm( )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 2,442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For fifty years anthropologist June Helm studied the culture and ethnohistory of the Dene, "The People," the Athapaskan-speaking Indians of the Mackenzie River drainage of Canada's western subarctic. This collection represents the culmination of her fieldwork, for the benefit of those studying North American Indians, hunter-gatherers, and subarctic ethnohistory and as a historical resource for the people of all ethnicities who live in Denendeh, Land of the Dene." "Helm begins with a broad-ranging, stimulating overview of the social organization of hunter-gatherer peoples of the world, past and present, that provides a background for all she has learned about the Dene. The chapters in part I focus on community and daily life among the Mackenzie Dene in the middle of the twentieth century. After two historical overview chapters, Helm moves from the early years of the twentieth century to the earliest contacts between Dene and white culture, ending with a look at the momentous changes in Dene-government relations in the 1970s. Part 3 considers traditional Dene knowledge, meaning, and enjoyments, including a chapter on the Dogrib hand game. Throughout, Helm's encyclopedic knowledge combines with her personal interactions to create a collection that is unique in its breadth and intensity."--Jacket

The American Indian today by Stuart Levine( Book )

37 editions published between 1965 and 1992 in English and held by 1,326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the problems and prospects for the American Indian in our country today? An emergent pride in his ancient culture has also made him aware of his isolation within American society. He is now attempting to forge an "Indian" identity which transcends the old tribal loyalties. Yet in doing so he must also seek to maintain the sense of community which is so firmly rooted in traditional Indian values. This is one of the problems that thirteen Indian and white anthropologists explore in this broad look at contemporary Indian life. Their findings are illustrated by selected "case histories," which examine the specific problems confronting Indians in various parts of the country today. There is also a brief summary of Indian and United States governmental relationships designed to place these problems in their historical context. The American Indian Today won the 1968 Anisfield-Wolf Award for the best serious book in the field of race relations. -- from back cover

"This short history of Wisconsin's native peoples is now thoroughly updated and expanded to include events through the end of the twentieth century and to reflect current scholarship throughout. From the treaty-making era to the rise of tribal activism in the 1960s to the profound changes brought about by Indian gaming, this account remains the best concise treatment of the subject.

Women and the invention of American anthropology by Nancy Oestreich Lurie( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv.: Nancy Oestreich Lurie's essay profiles six remarkable women who helped to establish anthropology from its self-taught beginnings in the last quarter of the nineteenth century through its recognition as an academic discipline by the twentieth century: Erminnie Smith, Alice Fletcher, Matilda Stevenson, Zelia Nuttall, Frances Densmore, and Elsie Clews Parsons. Sharing exceptional intellectual curiosity and a sense of adventure to step beyond the place society reserved for the average woman, they were not only accepted but welcomed by enlightened male contemporaries. E. B. Tylor thought women were needed to carry out "half the work of investigation" because of what were believed to be their "special adaptations" as females. In fact, each brought her own unique nature and adaptations as an individual in shaping the development of anthropology as a whole
