Red Earth, White Lies: Native Americans and the Myth of Scientific Fact
Author:
Vine Deloria Jr.

In this book, the author addresses the conflict between mainstream scientific theory about our world and the ancestral worldview of Native Americans. Claiming that science has created a largely fictional scenario for American Indians in prehistoric North America, Deloria offers an alternative view of the continent's history as seen through the eyes and memories of Native Americans. Further, he warns future generations of scientists not to repeat the ethnocentric ommissions and fallacies of the past by dismissing Native oral tradition as mere legends.
