DICTIONARY OF DAILY LIFE OF INDIAN OF THE AMERICAS contains information on the customs, ways, ceremonies, tribal languages, cultural characteristics, weapons, food, drink, clothing, myths, legends, and many, many more articles.
From the Aleuts of the Arctic region to Onas in southern Argentina and Chile, this is a contemporary work and its intention is to bring modern day insights to the consideration of the native peoples who populate the western hemisphere. Modern anthropologists and historians tend to agree that there is a basic homogeneity (cultural, social, biological, or other similarities within a group) among the native peoples of the Americas that need to be considered when any of the tribes are studied. The entries were written by noted local, national and international historians and anthropologists. The set also contains maps, illustrations and an index.
