WINNER OF THE INAUGURAL LABRIOLA CENTER AMERICAN INDIAN NATIONAL BOOK AWARD




This book shows how Native people who never embraced militancy—and others who did—made vital contributions as activists well before the American Indian Movement burst onto the scene. By highlighting the role of early intellectuals and activists like Sol Tax, Nancy Lurie, Robert K. Thomas, Helen Peterson, and Robert V. Dumont, Cobb situates AIM’s efforts within a much broader context and reveals how Native people translated the politics of Cold War civil rights into the language of tribal sovereignty.--

Book Review


A Good Cherokee, A Good Anthropologist: Papers in Honor of Robert K. Thomas. Edited by Steve Pavlik. American Indian Studies Center at the University of California, Los Angeles, 1998. 390 pages. $25 paper. $40 cloth.




This book is a fitting memorial to Bob Thomas, a man who touched so many people's lives so deeply. It also is an important documentation of the evolution of Native American political and scholarly thought in the historical context of one of its primary proponents. To relegate this book, or even the life of Bob Thomas, to the narrower sphere of Native American subject matter is to miss its greatest potential contribution. While Bob Thomas' contributions to understanding the dynamics of cultural and social forces are usually thought of in the context of Native American communities, it is the universality of his vision that makes his contribution, and by extension this book, so significant.

http://indigenouspolicy.org/Articles...ault.aspx--Bob Thomas And American Indian Religion By Thomas J. Hoffman, Ph.D., St. Mary’s University, San Antonio, TX,
In April of 2001 a number of us gathered at a roundtable at the Western Social Science Convention in Reno, Nevada to honor Bob Thomas, who had passed on in 1991. On that panel I tried to serve up some of Bob’s primary points and cleverly phrased insights about American Indian religion which I gleaned from a course I took from him in the Fall of 1981 when he was first returning to the University of Arizona (he had been a student there, leaving 30 years earlier in 1951). --
