Overview

From origin stories to contemporary struggles over treaty rights and sovereignty issues, Indian Nations of Wisconsin explores Wisconsin's rich Native tradition. This unique volume—based on the historical perspectives of the state’s Native peoples—includes compact tribal histories of the Ojibwe, Potawatomi, Oneida, Menominee, Mohican, Ho-Chunk, and Brothertown Indians. Author Patty Loew focuses on oral tradition—stories, songs, the recorded words of Indian treaty negotiators, and interviews—along with other untapped Native sources, such as tribal newspapers, to present a distinctly different view of history. Lavishly illustrated with maps and photographs, Indian Nations of Wisconsin is indispensable to anyone interested in the region's history and its Native peoples.

The first edition of Indian Nations of Wisconsin: Histories of Endurance and Renewal, won the Wisconsin Library Association's 2002 Outstanding Book Award.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Patty Loew's new book about Wisconsin's Native Americans may be the most authentic treatment to date." (Wisconsin Academy Review)

"A wonderful, easy read with evocative photographs." (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

"When I first looked at this book, I thought it was an interesting history of Native Americans in the state. The more I think about it, however, the more I realize it is the principal history of the state. . . . You really can't fully understand Wisconsin history without the information in this book." (Wisconsin State Journal)
