Past meets present in this comprehensive and eye-opening deck of quiz cards on Native American history and culture. Trying to describe a group composed of over 560 distinct nations, who account for 10 utterly distinct language groups and over 250 languages, whose recorded history stretches considerably longer than that of the United States, could drive a team of encyclopedists to despair. But this stack of 48 cards succeeds by projecting a kaleidoscopic portrait of historical events, current circumstances, and notable figures, from a Pulitzer Prize winner to an Olympic gold medalist. On the front of each card is a question; on the back is a brief essay. Learn how a Native American language contributed to the American effort in World War II, how tribal governments work, and how nonliterate groups kept track of their past.
