Americans view their Dust Bowl experience( )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 1,644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Americans View Their Dust Bowl Experience is an important gathering of first-person accounts of the trauma of the 1930s in the Heartland, collected together and assessed by historians from the distance of several decades."--BOOK JACKET
The Nebraska-Kansas Act of 1854( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Nebraska-Kansas Act of 1854 turns upside down the traditional way of thinking about one of the most important laws ever passed in American history. The act that created Nebraska and Kansas also, in effect, abolished the Missouri Compromise, which had prohibited slavery in the region since 1820. This bow to local control outraged the nation and led to vicious confrontations, including Kansas' subsequent mini-civil war. At the 150th anniversary of the Kansas-Nebraska Act these scholars reexamine the political, social, and personal contexts of this act and its effect on the course of American history
"Retained by the people" : a history of American Indians and the Bill of Rights by John R Wunder( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After providing a thorough examination of rights and legal status as perceived by Native Americans, addressing such topics as conduct and collective rights, "Retained by The People" recounts the various brutal forms of colonialism forced upon indigenous nations by European and American settlers through the beginning of 1900, then gives a balanced and detailed analysis of twentieth-century events that have shaped Native American rights under the United States constitution. The author explores attacks on Indian culture in the 1920s, the empowerment of tribal governments during the thirties, and federal attempts at cultural liquidation through the forties, fifties, and sixties
Nebraska moments by Donald R Hickey( )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nebraska author Mari Sandoz remarked that most people see Nebraska as "that long flat state that sets between me and any place I want to go." If so, they're missing plenty, as this entertaining volume makes abundantly clear. Susan A. Wunder and John R. Wunder's new, expanded, and updated edition of Donald R. Hickey's classic account of defining Nebraska moments showcases triumph, tragedy, comedy, and accomplishments that could have happened nowhere else and that reveal the rich culture and history under the state's deceptively quiet surface

Native American cultural and religious freedoms by John R Wunder( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fight to have the American legal system recognize Native American religions has taken many forms, from the confrontation over Indian usage of eagle feathers and the ingestion of peyote in religious ceremonies to the right of students to have traditional Indian hairstyles while attending public schools. It was thought that the passage of the American Indian Religious Freedoms Act of 1978 would alleviate these problems, but Supreme Court interpretations have essentially eviscerated this law. In addition to these issues, the articles in this collection address the ongoing conflict between Native Americans and museums and states over who has rights to the skeletal remains and burial objects that have been illegally recovered throughout the United States

Standing Bear's Footsteps( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1877, the Ponca people were exiled from their Nebraska homeland to Indian Territory in present-day Oklahoma. To honor his dying son's last wish to be buried in his homeland, Chief Standing Bear set off on a grueling, six-hundred-mile journey home. Captured en-route, Standing Bear sued a famous U.S. army general for his freedom-- choosing to fight injustice not with weapons, but with words. The Chief stood before the court to prove that an Indian was a person under the law. The story quickly made newspaper headlines-- attracting powerful allies, as well as enemies. Stirring a nation's conscience and challenging the meaning of freedom, Standing Bear's Footsteps chronicles an Indian chief's odyssey, ending in a battle for civil rights unlike any other in American history."
