Review quote

"Highly recommended." CHOICE "A masterly addition both to the ethnic history of the American city and to the history of Native Americans." Journal of American History "Indian Metropolis offers a unique perspective on Native American urbanization. It explains why Indian people began leaving reservations in large numbers in the 1940s and how they remade their communities in an alien urban space. It tells this important story from the point of view of the participants who lived through it, demonstrating in the process the creativity and drive of Chicago's Native Americans. They transformed experiences of hardship into stories of adaptation and success. A must read." Frederick E. Hoxie, Swanlund Professor of History at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaignshow more
