Description

"Black, White, and Indian" tells the story of a Native American family with a long-kept secret: one branch is of African descent. Focusing on five generations from 1780 to 1920, this book fluidly illustrates how Indians disowned their black relatives to survive in the shadow of the expanding American republic. Interludes in the text illuminate how this issue has continued to be a politically explosive one for modern-day Indians.show more
