Overview

In Theodore Roosevelt and Six Friends of the Indian, William T. Hagan describes the efforts by six prominent individuals and two institutions to influence the conduct of Indian affairs during the administrations of President Theodore Roosevelt. The institutions are the Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions and the Indian Rights Association. The six men are Francis E. Leupp, Herbert Welsh, C. Hart Merriam, George Bird Grinnell, Charles F. Lummis, and Hamlin Garland. Each of these men attempted to influence the implementation of Indian policy. All had had some contact with Roosevelt prior to his presidency, and some had sought his intercession on Indian affairs when he served as Civil Service commissioner, governor of New York, and U.S. vice president. As a result of these contacts, Roosevelt entered the White House relatively well informed on tribal affairs. As president he proved remarkably responsive to the six men's views, even when it brought him into conflict with members of his own cabinet. Hagan outlines the divisions along religious lines and the political rivalries behind the contest for the support of President Roosevelt. The vagaries of Indian administration by the federal government are evident, as is the unfortunate situation of noncitizen tribal peoples living as wards of the United States. Theodore Roosevelt and Six Friends of the Indian presents to the reader a new Roosevelt who differs from the Indian-hating chauvinist so frequently encountered in the literature. This book reveals that in fact Roosevelt sympathized with the plight of the Indians and respected their institutions and culture.

    An informative Read

    In the non fiction book Theodore Roosevelt and Six Friends of the Indian written by William T. Hagan, it shows that Theodore Roosevelt is not quite as hateful towards the Native Americans as most people usually might think, in fact, quite often he is actually a sympathizer. The six friends of the Native Americans are George Bird Grinnell, C. Hart Merriam, Herbert Welsh, Hamlin Garland, Francis E. Leupp, and Chales F. Lummis. The book goes through many different ways that the six men try to help the Native Americans into a better life and to be more industrious, and on some situations, it shows how Theodore Roosevelt would sometimes help the six men despite his own cabinet members' ideas and thoughts. Some messages and themes of the book is that sometimes helping minorities will not always make you more popular nor will it make your position in your job higher. I liked the historical aspect of the history including the fact that you get to see a different side the president Theodore Roosevelt not often percieved. I did dislike the literary style just because it was like sometimes reading a textbook at times. However, at the same time it had some strong verbs which did help the rhetoric and fluency of the book. I think that if you like to learn about American history, specifically about Theodore Roosevelt and Native Americans, this would be a good book for you to read. Also this will give you a fresh perspective on Theodore Roosevelt's thoughts on Native Americans which usually perceived as racist, chauvinist, and intolerant. This will also show you some aspects of his domestic policies. Some other recommended works would be The Rough Riders written by Theodore Roosevelt himself with an introduction by William Tilchin and the book Theodore Roosevelt's History of the United States, also written by President Theodore Roosevelt. Also I would suggest another piece of media, a Public Broadcasting Station special called National Parks: Americas Best Idea, although not a book and not completely about Theodore Roosevelt, it shows more of Theodore Roosevelt's domestic policies. Overall this was a good book. It was written like a textbook at times, but I would recommend it to others interested in Theodore Roosevelt. It was insightful, and gave me more respect for Theodore Roosevelt as a president, politician, and person.
