Author: Wendell H. Oswalt

Book Description:
This Land Was Theirs examines the traditional and contemporary lifeways of twelve North American Indian tribes. Ranging from the Netsilik hunters who straddle the Arctic Circle to the Natchez farmers of the lower Mississippi River area, the tribes represent each culture area and various levels of socioeconomic complexity among Native Americans. Each chapter focuses on a specific group and culture area, providing students with a detailed portrait of the geographical and cultural adaptations of that region.

As he has done for previous editions, author Wendell H. Oswalt has visited virtually all of the extant groups discussed in the text to ensure an accurate and complete picture of the contemporary situation.
Updates and major changes featured in this edition include:

* A new chapter on the Western Shoshone–a Great Basin tribe centered in Nevada–including a discussion of the 2004 partial resolution of their long-standing major land claim against the federal government
* A description of how in recent years some Pentecostal church congregations among the Crow and Tlingit have rejected their Indian backgrounds
* A discussion of how the discovery of vast diamond deposits in northern Canada may dramatically change the lifeway of some Chipewyan and the Netsilik
* Coverage of timely issues for Native Americans, including the management of individual trust accounts by the Bureau of Indian Affairs; the disposition of Kennewick Man; and the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Lara case in 2004, which centered on an aspect of Indian sovereignty
* A more detailed examination of Indian casinos, including typical non-Indian reactions to them

This Land Was Theirs, Eighth Edition, incorporates more than 150 photographs and illustrations, and each chapter-opening offers pertinent text about the subject matter covered in that chapter. Abundant pedagogical aids include maps of each region discussed, a glossary, a pronunciation guide, and two appendixes: a guide to the various artifact types discussed in the text and an extensive list of additional resources for learning about Native Americans.

Author: Wendell H Oswalt

Book Description:
This Land Was Theirs: A Study of Native North Americans, Ninth Edition, examines the traditional and contemporary lifeways of twelve North American Indian tribes. Ranging from the Netsilik hunters who straddle the Arctic Circle to the Natchez farmers of the lower Mississippi River area, the tribes represent each culture area and various levels of socioeconomic complexity among Native Americans. After introductory chapters devoted to pan-tribal issues, each chapter focuses on a specific group and culture area, providing students with a detailed portrait of the geographical and cultural adaptations of that region.

As he has done for previous editions, author Wendell H. Oswalt has visited virtually all of the extant groups discussed in the text in order to ensure an accurate record of the present-day situation.

Features of the Ninth Edition
*Each chapter on an extant tribal group now includes a table with a timeline summarizing the group’s ethnohistory
*Includes an expanded section on the original peopling of the Americas
*Emphasizes the major issues band and tribal governments in North America face today
*Addresses the increasingly important diamond mining industry in Canada and the Subarctic
*Includes more than 150 illustrations and chapter-opening native poems or songs
*Offers expanded coverage of the Navajo, the transcontinental railroad’s impact on Indian life, and contemporary issues encountered on reservations

Provides pedagogical aids including maps of each region discussed, a glossary, a pronunciation guide, and two appendices: a guide to artifacts and a list of additional resources for further study
