On Native Soil
The Forgotten Race: American Indians
They call themselves Ojibway, but in the written history books they are called Chippewa. The Dine' people are called Navajo; the Tis-Tsis-Tsas are called Cheyenne; recently the Winnebago returned to their name of Ho-Chunk Nation; and the Papago are recognized by their original name of Tohono O'Odham. Many changes have been thrust on the American Indian and only in recent years have they begun returning to their roots. This chapter on American Indians presents a brief overview of the history of the first Americans and discusses the diversity of American Indians. Sections on family roles and relationships, language, education, health, and values are presented to help the reader understand American Indians. However, in order to understand the American Indian today, one must recognize the trauma and oppression.
