Description

Social Change and Cultural Continuity among Native Nations is written by Duane Champagne, professor of sociology and director of the Native Nations Law and Policy Center at UCLA. A member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa, Champagne is well-known for his prolific writing career on Native American issues. This current study examines the broad range of social change among Native North American Peoples in the twenty-first century. He studies social change from the governmental, economic, religious, and environmental perspectives as Aboriginal Peoples in North America struggle to maintain cultural continuity in the face of a legacy of colonial domination and the uncertain future of globalization. It is his view that Aboriginal communities in Canada and the United States strive for self-government within the context of their cultural, spiritual, and historical perspectives. This is a must-read for post-secondary students interested in anthropology, sociology, ethnic studies, or Native American Studies.
