Library Journal Review

This two-volume treatment of American Indian tribes is organized into two parts: "Culture Areas" and "Tribes and Traditions." The first part is further divided into ten distinct and well-organized thematic essays on regions that include the Arctic, California, Great Basin, Northeast, Northwest Coast, Plains, Plateau, Southeast, Southwest, and the Subarctic. Each essay presents the language groups and tribes of the region in question and a variety of subtopics, such as environment, material culture, art and architecture, linguistic history, postcontact changes, and regional prehistory. The essays, which reflect the diversity of each region, are well written, clear, and concise. The "Tribes and Traditions" section, which takes up the second half of Volume 1 and all of Volume 2, covers every group, from the Abenaki to the Zapotec, including precontact groups, such as the Hohokam or Hopewell. Each tribe and tradition is accompanied by information on culture-area affiliation, language group, primary location, and population size (using the 1990 U.S. Census or other estimates). Brief discussion is given to subsistence patterns, material culture, post-contact changes, prehistory, religion, and history. In terms of layout and level of detail, this two-volume set can be compared to American Indian Biographies (LJ 3/15/99) and Arlene Hirschfelder and Paulette Molin's Encyclopedia of Native American Religion (LJ 1/00), which it complements nicely but does not replace; all three books are different in focus. The current work is an excellent sourcebook for researchers, students, and professionals and is highly recommended for all public and academic libraries and special collections. John E.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-This set, based on Ready Reference: American Indians (Salem, 1995), offers streamlined accessibility. Beginning with an overview of the 10 "Culture Areas of North America," it continues with signed, alphabetically arranged articles on 312 tribes. Each Native group is introduced by statistics followed by a straightforward but dry historical summary ranging from two to eight pages in length, interspersed with black-and-white maps, photos, and reproductions. Entries that discuss modern tribal life note the continuing poverty and discrimination suffered by many groups, such as the Aleut, and the political activism of others, such as the Crow. Some new material is included (updated time line, lists of films) and some has been omitted (charts, a glossary, important references, and comprehensive cross-indexing and see-also references at the end of each article), but the bulk of text remains the same as the earlier title. The nine appendixes include information on festivals and pow-wows, museums and libraries, related organizations and societies, and reservation populations. A "Mediagraphy" lists documentary and feature films, and more. Libraries owning the heftier Ready Reference will want to keep it for its range of access points and breadth of information. American Indian Tribes will suffice for libraries needing concise, factual accounts.-Tina Hudak, St. Bernard's School, Riverdale, MD (c) Copyright 2010.
