Overview

Originally published over 100 years ago, A Century of Dishonor is Helen Jackson's eye-opening sketch of the U.S. government's often shameful mishandling of what was called the "Indian problem". Using official documents as authentic research materials, Jackson asserts that the government and citizens of the United States were the cause of the "problems", and not the Native peoples.
