Summary

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. Each chapter is a compact tribal history of one of the state's Indian nations--Ojibwe, Potawatomi, Oneida, Menominee, Mohican and Brothertown, and Ho-Chunk--and the book relies on the historical perspectives of Native people. Author Patty Loew focuses on oral tradition--stories, songs, the recorded words of Indian treaty negotiators, and interviews--as well as other untapped Native sources, such as tribal newspapers, to present a distinctly different view of history. Elders and tribal historians from each of the twelve Native communities represented in the book participated in the book's development--making suggestions, recommending sources, and offering criticism. "Indian Nations of Wisconsin" is illustrated with more than seventy photographs.
