Indians on a Shelf

Dorris, M. (1987). Indians on the Shelf. In C. Martin (Ed.), The American Indian and the Pattern of History (pp. 98-105). : Oxford University Press.

Indians on the Shelf by, Michael Dorris shows the way that Euro Europeans took over the Americas and made Indians seem like vultures and inhuman. In many ways this is very controversial and a strong topic. It really shows how society thinks of different cultures and they way they perceive them. People hold many stereo types, Dorris does a great way of reconizing this strong topic and writes on the change that needs to be done.
