"Coyote warriors" are the new generation of American Indian leaders who leave the reservation to train as attorneys, scientists or other professionals, then return home to help their tribes. Tribal governments, under pressure to develop their natural resources, are often taken advantage of by big businesses and even the federal government. Author Paul VanDevelder highlights the experience of Raymond Cross, a Mandan/Hidatsa attorney who fights for his tribe’s rights.
