Indian Nations of Wisconsin: Histories of Endurance and Renewal

From origin stories to contemporary struggles over treaty rights and sovereignty issues. Indian Nations of Wisconsin: Histories of Endurance and Renewal 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. Elders and tribal historians in each of the Native communities represented here participated in the book's development -- recommending sources, making suggestions, and offering criticism as the book unfolded. Lavishly illustrated with maps and more than ninety photographs. Indian Nations of Wisconsin is indispensible to anyone interested in the region's history and its Native peoples.
