Featured Book of the Month This Indian Country
by Fred Hoxie '69

“A powerful, undeniable chronicle of civilized resistance... This Indian Country inarguably opens our eyes.” Cleveland Plain Dealer


In this bold and sweeping counter narrative 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.
