    I hope others will have some more suggestions.

    A long time ago I read Custer Died for Your Sins: An Indian Manifesto by Vine Deloria Jr.  I am not sure that is the broad one that you mean.

    In his new preface to this quality 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, whatever their special interest.

    Deloria asserts the worth of the redman and blasts the political, social, and religious forces that perpetuate the stereotyping of his people.
