Description
When the American colonies defeated Britain during the War for Independence, Native American leaders began to establish diplomatic relations with the new nation. This book, illustrated throughout with archival photos and reproductions of art, describes the history of American Indians and American presidents—what they said and thought about one another, and what their words tell us about the history of the United States. It focuses on major turning points in Native American history, from the age of George Washington to the present, revealing how Indians like Little Turtle and Robert Yellowtail interpreted the power and prestige of the presidency and advanced their own agendas for tribal sovereignty. Here too are some unexpected perspectives on the presidents; Thomas Jefferson emerges as a master of the art of Indian dispossession, while Richard Nixon was in reality a champion of tribal self-determination—a position that sprang, in part, from his Quaker origins.
