A comprehensive history of the heroic men and women who led the struggle for Indian rights In this bold and sweeping counternarrative to our conventional understanding of Native American history, celebrated academic historian Frederick E. Hoxie presents the story of Native American political activism--a chronicle that spans more than two hundred years. Highlighting the activists--some famous and some unknown beyond their own communities--who have sought to bridge the distance between indigenous cultures and the U.S. republic through legal and political campaigns, Hoxie weaves a powerful narrative that connects the individual to the tribe, the tribe to the nation, and the nation to broader historical processes and progressive movements.
