Review by Anita Scheetz
The CD version of Tiller’s Guide to Indian Country has been somewhat updated using 2000 census data. This guide by Tiller, an Apache scholar, is arranged alphabetically by state.
Entries for each reservation provide basic statistical information, including land area, labor force, educational levels, unemployment rate, and population. A brief narrative describes the reservation’s culture and history, government, location, business enterprises (including tourism), and community facilities.
The information about the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Reservation retained most of the 1996 content with 2000 statistics updates found only in the margin areas.
Since the content of this CD remains mostly the same as the 1996 version, our library will keep using that version. Libraries that did not purchase the original print version might consider this updated CD version.
