“Native Roots”: A Review of the Book by Jack Weatherford
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page discussion of the numerous lessons presented in this book on Native American history and the culture’s impacts on the Europeans who invaded Native lands. This book offers a provocative view of the manner in which mainstream America is indebted to its indigenous inhabitants the Native Americans. Despite the lack of recognition of the fact, many attributes of Native knowledge and culture became slowly and indelibly engraved into white culture. In “Native Roots” Weatherford presents a clear and logical argument that what developed even more slowly over the years which would follow was an interdependence of white and Native American culture. The author of this paper contends that the scenario which is related in “Native Roots” has a number of implications, particularly to the liberal arts classroom. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

Her entire life, however, would be an apparent struggle between native and white lifeways. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

“Sitting Bull and the Paradox of the Lakota Nationhood”
[ send me this paper ]
A 4 page review of the book by Gary Clayton Anderson. The author details the contradictions which are inherent in the historical pronouncement of the Lakota people as a "nation". Anderson's thesis is that the final recognition of the Lakota as a nation was indeed a paradox. Not only had the U.S. government never historically recognized the Lakota as a true nation and would fail to give that recognition even after they themselves had pronounced the Lakota a nation, they withheld the designation until a time when the Lakota were least capable of acting as a nation. No additional sources are listed.

“Sun Chief”: A Review of Hopi Culture and Belief
[ send me this paper ]

"A Spirited Resistance: The North American Indian Struggle for Unity, 1745-1815"
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page review of the Book by author Gregory Evans Dowd. The author of this paper emphasizes the point that while many Native American leaders had hope of effecting a final victory over the whites that had invaded their lands, the "militant nativist" message delivered by prophets like Neolin (mid-eighteenth Century Deleware) and Tenskwatwa (early nineteenth Century Shawnee, brother of Tecumseh) was rejected by many of the Native peoples. The Native people had suffered tremendously at the hands of the whites. That suffering was not easily forgotten. Even when they were given new hope by new leaders, many were reluctant to confront the whites in yet another battle. They had come to believe in their hearts that the white tide was unstoppable and that by trying to stop it they would only sacrifice more Native lives. No additional sources are listed.
