About the book:

Two approaches are currently in vogue when discussing the future of the Southwestern Indian; the first flatly predicts the imminent disappearance of native cultures into the mainstream of American life. The second is more vague and therefore more popular; it speaks gently of the acculturative process, suggesting a thoughtful blending of "the best of the old with the best of the new", a sort of golden cultural sunset in which the Indian may remain quaint in his crafts, colorful in his religion and wise in his philosophy - but still reasonable enough in his relations with us (the superior culture) to see things our way. One thing is certain - the story of the American Indian is not yet finished; but how will it end or if it will end remains to be seen. There is still time, perhaps, to begin to think of our remaining Indian communities as valuable cultural resources rather than simply as perplexing social problems.
