North American Indians Today: Huron is one of the titles in the Mason Crest Publishers series about Native Americans in contemporary society. The series is edited by Martha McCollough, professor of ethnohistory and contemporary Native American issues at the University of Nebraska. The series intends to overcome common misconceptions and stereotypes about Native North American Indians by providing students with information about the ways contemporary Native Americans work to preserve and maintain their culture as well as developing strong economies. This title is about the Huron or Wendat Nation and is written by Autumn Libal. Each book in the series combines information from oral history with factual details about oral traditions, history, current government, contemporary religious practices, the arts, contributions, and challenges faced by the Nation. Each title in the series contains numerous colour, contemporary photographs, an index, bibliography, and glossary of terms. This book is an important addition to information books about contemporary Native Americans for high school students.
