What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Blee and O'Brien take up important issues like the relationship of public art and public history with the history and visibility of Indigeneity in American public spaces. Ultimately, they reveal that Massasoit cannot, in fact, be owned or controlled. He can be found in sculptural form all over the country, but his historical meaning is much more unstable. This is what America's foundational history and memory is really all about.--Erika Doss, University of Notre Dame

This engaging book draws readers into a fascinating story that will help them make sense of collective narratives regarding nature, nationalism, 'Indians,' and the role of monuments. It is a truly enjoyable read, a book that provokes curiosity and a desire to unpack and understand.--Lisa Brooks, Amherst College
