    Frederick Hoxie’s work in This Indian Country presents a fresh look at the the battle to secure American Indian rights throughout US history. Hoxie argues that there is more to American Indian history than Geronimo, Sitting Bull, and Crazy Horse, and that it is critical historians and students understand the wider history of American Indian activism. Hoxie claims that his work counters the dominant theme of Indian warriors and violent resistance or passive defeat “by presenting portraits of [...]

    Histories and stories that are just not taught. Had this book for awhile and decided to finally knock it off my list. Author Hoxie looks at the stories of Indian activists and figures that are simply not taught in the US school system unless you take a specific class, have a particular area of study or have a special interest. It's really quite terrible. Each chapter looks at different people (mostly specific individuals but the fight of the Ojibwe to stay on their land at Mille Lac, Minnesota) [...]

    - Would love to read a Canadian equivalent sometime, if any are available. It would be interesting to compare and contrast the hurdles activists faced over the history, where the similarities lay and where differences yawned.

    Does a good job of getting into the legal, policy and political debates and history and how American Indian leaders both responded and made that change.

    It's impossible to understand United States history without understanding Native American history. This Indian Country provides an overview of Native American activists from the birth of the United States to the present. Hoxie does not portray these activists as victims or as infallible heroes. Many of these activists were women. Hoxie also gives good descriptions of the issues affecting. native communities over the past two hundred plus years. On a personal note, my parents knew Vine Deloria.

    Native Americans have almost always been ignored or exploited by the United States. This work looks at their treatment and lack of recognition since the beginning of the American republic. This was a very informative read and is recommended ffor anyone interested in the hidden side of America.

    An excellent look at Native American activism from the early 1800s to 2004. I learned so much about the history of US expansion and the people who have striven to survive and prosper in relationship to the US and states.

    After the Indian Wars of the 1800's, Indian activists struggled to define their rights. This is the story of the 1900's.
