9780143124023: This Indian Country: American Indian Activists and the Place They Made (Penguin History American Life)

A comprehensive history of the heroic men and women who led the struggle for Indian rights

In this bold and sweeping counternarrative to our conventional understanding of Native American history, celebrated academic historian Frederick E. Hoxie presents the story of Native American political activism—a chronicle that spans more than two hundred years. Highlighting the activists—some famous and some unknown beyond their own communities—who have sought to bridge the distance between indigenous cultures and the U.S. republic through legal and political campaigns, Hoxie weaves a powerful narrative that connects the individual to the tribe, the tribe to the nation, and the nation to broader historical processes and progressive movements.

About the Author:

Frederick E. Hoxie is the Swanlund Professor of History, Law, and American Indian Studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. He had written and edited more than a dozen books. He lives in Evanston, Illinois.

From Booklist:

Hoxie—author, professor, and trustee of the National Museum of the American Indian—focuses on Native American figures who, for the last 200 years, have sought to define a place for Native communities within the institutions of the U.S. He begins with James McDonald, the first Indian lawyer, who, in the 1820s, was the first Native activist to make the case for Indian rights directly to American political leaders. One of his successors, William Potter Ross, testified before Congress and was an active defender of American Indian nationalism until his death, in 1891. Sarah Winnemucca was a Paiute author and activist who wrote forcefully about the western expansion into her homeland. Hoxie examines in meticulous detail the successful 20-year Ojibwe struggle to stay on their land at Mille Lac, Minnesota, and the 1911 formation of the Society of American Indians, whose founders focused on the extension of American citizenship to all Native peoples. He concludes this enlightening volume, the latest in the Penguin History of American Life, with Vine Deloria, who encouraged “re-tribalization”—the return of young educated Indians from cities back to their tribes. --Deborah Donovan
