Zitkala-Sa American Indian Stories


Zitkala-Sa (1876-1938) was a pioneering voice in the movement for Native American rights. Born on a Sioux reservation in South Dakota, she spent her life as an activist working to bring the history and cultural concerns of Native Americans to the broader public. In «American Indian Stories» (1921), her most famous work, Zitkala-Sa draws upon her experience as a Native American child faced with the reality of cultural submission. A collection of fiction and non-fiction, «American Indian Stories» explores the pressures Native Americans faced to assimilate to white American culture. Zitkala-Sa later established and presided over the National Council of American Indians, helping to further the interests of American Indians. These stories and tales create an intimate portrait of the rich cultural history of the American Indian, and double as source material from one of America's most successful Native American activists.

Джеймс Аллен Be Your Own Boss: 4 James Allen Books on Self-Mastery

Группа авторов Native American Wisdom


Joseph, Sitting Bull, Red Cloud, Black Elk, Ohiyesa, and many others share their insights on Native American ways of living, learning, and dying.
There is something archetypal about the philosophy of the original Americans, especially to the sensibilities of modern European Americans. We recognize it as coming from the earth we walk on, from those who preceded us. As we read the wisdom of these peoples, it is possible to feel a reconnection with our land and ourselves.
Taken from orations, recorded observations of life and social affairs, and other first-person testimonies, this book selects the best of Native American wisdom and distills it to its essence in short, digestible quotes that are meaningful and timeless – perhaps even more timely now than when they were written.

Helen Hunt Jackson A Century of Dishonor


Helen Hunt Jackson (1830-1885) was an American writer who most widely became famous as an activist to improve United States government treatment of Native Americans. In 1879 her interests turned to the Native Americans after hearing a lecture in Boston by Standing Bear, the Ponca Chief. He described the forceful removal of the Ponca from their reservation in Nebraska. Moved by the issues presented by Standing Bear, Hunt learned about the government defaulting on treaties, the removal of Indians to reservations, and the Indian Wars. Soon after Standing Bear's speech, she became an activist, investigating and publicizing government misconduct, circulating petitions, raising money, and writing letters to «The New York Times» on behalf of the Ponca. She gained the widest exposure with her novel, «Ramona», dramatizing the ill treatment by the US government of Native Americans in Southern California. «A Century of Dishonor», published in 1881, was a direct response to the adverse effect of government actions towards the Native Americans. A copy was sent to each member of the US Congress.

Annie Heloise Abel The American Indian as Slaveholder and Secessionist

Africans were enslaved by Native Americans from the colonial period until the United States' Civil War. The interactions between Native American and Africans in the antebellum United States is complex. «The American Indian as Slaveholder and Secessionist» was among the first books which addressed this issue in a critical manner with a special emphasis on the relationship between the Indian nations and the Confederate States. Contents General Situation in the Indian Country, 1830-1860 Indian Territory in Its Relations With Texas and Arkansas The Confederacy in Negotiation With the Indian Tribes The Indian Nations in Alliance With the Confederacy

Charles Patrick Neimeyer America Goes to War


One of the images Americans hold most dear is that of the drum-beating, fire-eating Yankee Doodle Dandy rebel, overpowering his British adversaries through sheer grit and determination. The myth of the classless, independence-minded farmer or hard-working artisan-turned-soldier is deeply ingrained in the national psyche. Charles Neimeyer here separates fact from fiction, revealing for the first time who really served in the army during the Revolution and why. His conclusions are startling. Because the army relied primarily on those not connected to the new American aristorcracy, the African Americans, Irish, Germans, Native Americans, laborers-for-hire, and «free white men on the move» who served in the army were only rarely alltruistic patriots driven by a vision of liberty and national unity. Bringing to light the true composition of the enlisted ranks, the relationships of African-Americans and of Native Americans to the army, and numerous acts of mutiny, desertion, and resistance against officers and government, Charles Patrick Neimeyer here provides the first comprehensive and historically accurate portrait of the Continental soldier.
