Description

The Southeast Indians were sophisticated farmers, hunters, gatherers, and fishers occupying a diverse region extending from the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Southern Appalachians, the Carolina Piedmont, the Atlantic and Gulf coastal plains, Florida, and west of the mountains to the rich valley of the southern Mississippi River.

The complexity and uniqueness of the Southeast culture area is detailed in The Smithsonian Institution’s Handbook of North American Indians, Volume 14, Southeast. Its 64 chapters, written by 63 leading authorities, both anthropologists and historians, describe and illustrate the culture of each major tribe and tribal group, their history, transformation, and evolution over time. Regional and sub-regional overviews frame these and summarize the long prehistory of the area.

Special topic chapters examine broad aspects of culture that characterize the Southeast and cross tribal lines. Introductory chapters explore the history of research in the area, languages spoken, and environment, and synthesize information on many small groups inadequately described in the historical literature.

Includes 508 illustrations--maps, drawings, paintings, engravings, photographs-- and essays on sources, extensive bibliography, and a detailed index.

This is part of the Smithsonian Institution’s Handbook of North American Indians series, the ultimate resource for Native American history across various regions of North America. The set is intended to give an encyclopedic summary of what is know about the prehistory, history, and cultures of the aboriginal peoples of North America north of the urban civilizations of central Mexico.

Audience

Teachers and students involved with anthropology, history, and American Indian Studies would benefit from this publication.  In addition, any member of the general public who wishes to learn about the complex and varying tribes of North America will enjoy this resource.
