Publisher's Summary

Standing Rock Sioux activist, professor, and attorney Vine Deloria, Jr., shares his thoughts about US race relations, federal bureaucracies, Christian churches, and social scientists in a collection of 11 eye-opening essays infused with humor. This "manifesto" provides valuable insights on American Indian history, Native American culture, and context for minority protest movements mobilizing across the country throughout the 1960s and early 1970s. Originally published in 1969, this book remains a timeless classic and is one of the most significant nonfiction works written by a Native American.

Perspective is always biased... but seriously...

According to Vine Deloria, Christians poison everything that they touch and can-do-nothing-right. And-if-natives-only-had-the-chance-they-would-make-the-right-moral-choice-as-a-matter-of-course. Nieve utopian

The best place to start to understand the US

If you want to better understand why the American continues to make bad decisions domestically & internationally then listen to this book. It will explain the history of your country to you from a position you can't imagine. Many of the ideas have come to pass and others are still in action, not all of them good, this book says even more now than it did in 1969.
