Contest: Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians

If you want to learn more about Native American people, our “Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians Contest” is for you!!

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

    A question I have about Native Americans is what organizations accept donations of homemade, crocheted sweaters, scarfs, hats, etc. I read that many Native Americans live in extreme poverty and/or are homeless and I would love to make donations to keep them warm.

      I remember some of it.Somebody hits the ball.Then he puts the bat on the grunod.The person that catches the ball must roll the ball and make it bounce up from the bat.the hitter must try to catch the ball.if he misses, the person that caught it gets to hit.if he catches it, he gets to hit again.Then its just a continuing cycle.its pretty fun.good lucktake care

    A question I am often confronted with is how those of us who are “mixed” cope with finding ourselves in a “homeless” environment. Many 3rd and 4th American Indian generations that are mixed know their hearts are home in their American Indian culture and yet suffer so much alienation.

    I’d like to read this book. As someone who looks American Indian, I am constantly being asked if the U.S. Government gives me money monthly, when i say no they don’t, the next question is about casino’s and if i get money that way. I have to tell people that we are supposed to get free medical and education but that is not so easy to get either.
