First Americans provides a comprehensive history of Native Americans, from their earliest appearance in North America to the present, which highlights the complexity and diversity of their past. Native voices permeate the text and shape its narrative, underlining the agency, diversity, and vitality of Native people and cultures through the present day. This updated edition of First Americans addresses the policies of the Obama and Trump administrations and includes a variety of pedagogical tools, such as short biographical profiles, key review questions, a rich series of maps and illustrations, chapter chronologies, and recommendations for further reading. Lucid and readable yet rigorous in its coverage, First Americans remains the indispensable student introduction to Native American history.
