500 years after Columbus's "discovery" of America, the indigenous people of the Western hemisphere continue to feel the effects of the European invasion. This collection of essays by noted American Indian authors and activists explores the circumstances confronted by native people in the contemporary United States. Topics discussed include treaty rights and international status, demography, relationship to feminism, education, militarization, art and literature, spiritual hucksterism, the case of Leonard Peltier, resource development and uranium contamination on reservations, religious freedom and the socio-cultural implications of the Columbus Quincentenary celebration.
