National Relief Charities and Native American anthropologist and author Anton Treuer share a goal to educate the public about Indian history, the role the U.S. government plays, and the effect on Indian culture and heritage as well as social conditions.
In his new book titled Everything You Wanted To Know About Indians But Were Afraid to Ask, Anton makes it clear that what’s true for one Indian may not be true for others. He also answers questions like these and many others, including questions we often hear from donors:
Why can’t Indians just move on?
What is Indian religion?
What is a pow wow?
Anton’s book will help re-educate the American public about the historical record and clear up misconceptions about the Indian people and their cultures. To help get his message out, NRC is launching the “Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians Contest.”
Participate in the book contest from now through June 15 for a chance to win an autographed copy of the book. This is a one-time giveaway by NRC.
Contestants must have a mailing address within the 48 contiguous states of North America. (This helps control our shipping costs.) For other participation requirements, please refer to our contest rules.
Contest start date: May 17, 2012
Cutoff for contest entries: Midnight on June 15, 2012
