The American Indian mind in a linear world : American Indian studies and traditional knowledge

Summary: Currently, there are three approaches to studying American Indians: from how white Americans approach Indian studies; from the dynamics or exchange of Indian-white relations; from the Indian point of view. Donald Fixico, an American Indian, has been teaching and writing history for a quarter of a century. This book is the direct result of his experience as a scholar who 'thinks like an Indian' in an academic environment created predominantly by non-Indian thinkers.
