Deloria offers his special, ironic Indian point of view on U.S. race relations, federal bureaucracies, Christian churches, and social scientists.



In his new preface to this paperback edition, the author observes, “The Indian world has changed so substantially since the first publication of this book that some things contained in it seem new again.” Indeed, it seems that each generation of whites and Indians will have to read and reread Vine Deloria’s manifesto for some time to come, before we absorb his special, ironic Indian point of view and what he tells us, with a great deal of humor, about U.S. race relations, federal bureaucracies, Christian churches, and social scientists. This book continues to be required reading for all Americans.

Vine Deloria, Jr. was an anthropologist, Professor of History at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and executive director of the National Congress of American Indians. The author published the first edition of Custer Died for Your Sins: An Indian Manifesto in 1969, the first of more than twenty books.
