Summary
Mr. West, a Cheyenne Indian and Director of the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian, gives a history of Native Americans in the United States followed by a brief discription of the current status of the Native Americans (lowest per capita income, the highest unemployment rate, the lowest level of educational attainment, the shortest lives, the worst health and housing conditions and the highest suicide rate in the United States). However, Mr. West is encouraged that Native Americans are becoming positive in attitude, and that others are gaining an appreciation of Indian culture.
