Summary

Even before the Revolutionary War, American colonists feared and fought “merciless Indian savages,” and through the following centuries, American law and policy have been molded by the relentless tradition of Indian-hating. From proportional representation and restrictions on the right to bear arms, to the break-up of tribal property rights and the destruction of Indian culture and family, the attacks on tribal governance and people continue and remain endemic. More than just a study of the progression of law, this book balances each chapter’s history with the relating of a traditional Anishinaabe story or teaching, providing both context and a roadmap for survival.
