Focusing on the American West, Parman presents twentieth-century Indian history in the context of regional development

Focusing on the American West, Parman presents twentieth-century Indian history in the context of regional development. Two questions dominate this story: Who will control Indian resources, and who will control Indian affairs? The turning point is World War II, when Indians in considerable numbers left reservations for wartime jobs or military service, leaving a postwar legacy of migration to urban centers, a sharpened sense of racial identity, and a desire for greater tribal autonomy.

Donald Fixico, one of the foremost scholars on Native Americans, details the day-to-day lives of these indigenous people in the 20th century. As they moved from living among tribes in the early 1900s to the cities of mainstream America after WWI and WWII, many Native Americans grappled with being both Indian and American. Through the decades they have learned to embrace a bi-cultural existence that continues today. Black and white photographs, maps and charts are interspersed throughout the text to assist readers.
