A Short List of Books on First Nations (Native American) Social, Political and Economic Experiences

Peace & Blessings Everybody

At the National Day of Action event at UMass Dartmouth, I was asked for a book list on Native History and socio-political issues. It was a good idea and since the request started this list. These are a few items on my book shelf and by no means a complete list, but a good start.
