(p.1) Introduction
We Will Always Be Here
Denise E. Bates, John David Smith
University Press of Florida

The introduction of this collection situates the contributing essays, interviews, and speeches within the existing and sparse literature on modern Native people of the southeast. It draws attention to the political, economic and social strides that Indian communities have made in the face of severe challenges at both the local and national levels—ones that primarily focus on Indian Self-Determination, leadership, and tribal organization. It also sets the stage for understanding the entries that comprise this collection as contributors share their own experiences, observations frustrations and aspirations as southern Indian people.

Keywords:   Indian Self-Determination, leadership, tribal organization
