Publisher description: American Indian affairs are much in the public mind today--hotly contested debates over such issues as Indian fishing rights, land claims, and reservation gambling hold our attention. While the unique legal status of American Indians rests on the historical treaty relationship between Indian tribes and the federal government, until now there has been no comprehensive history of these treaties and their role in American life. Francis Paul Prucha, a leading authority on the history of American Indian affairs, argues that the treaties were a political anomaly from the very beginning. The term "treaty" implies a contract between sovereign independent nations, yet Indians were always in a position of inequality and dependence as negotiators, a fact that complicates their current attempts to regain their rights and tribal sovereignty. Prucha's impeccably researched book, based on a close analysis of every treaty, makes possible a thorough understanding of a legal dilemma whose legacy is so palpably felt today
The sword of the Republic : the United States Army on the frontier, 1783-1846 by Francis Paul Prucha( Book )

23 editions published between 1968 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On April 19, 1783, Washington ordered his soldiers to go home. No one favored a peace-time army. Yet the years that followed saw the young nation embark on a dramatic surge of expansion that demanded the military as national protectors. This book is the story of the army in its new multifaceted role as the agent of the republic during the period of 1783 to 1846. It is the story of federal troops called up to enforce paper possession with physical occupation when treaty and purchase opened up the region from the Appalachians west to the Mississippi and the vast new frontiers in the Louisiana Territory. At Fallen Timbers, Tippecanoe, and the Thames, the federal military forces met the early challenge from the Indian nations and their British allies. The Sword of the Republic recounts the wars, the construction of western forts, and the tragic saga of the removal of Indians from the East

9 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about conflict between Protestants and Catholics over Indian mission schools in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In the late 19th century, American Indian policy was dominated by Protestant humanitarian organizations that sought to Americanize the Indians in terms of the evangelical Protestant heritage from which the reformers came. The system of Catholic mission schools on Indian reservations was seen as a major obstacle to the development of a universal Indian school system maintained by the federal government. The Protestants, finding that the Protestant outlook that permeated government schools fulfilled their own goals, had largely abandoned their mission schools, while the Catholics looked upon government schools as institutions that would pervert the faith and morals of Indian children. The book begins in 1888, when it first became clear that Catholic Indian schools were the principal beneficiaries of federal funds for mission schools, and ends in 1912, with the last great Protestant-Catholic flare-up over Indian schools. Between those dates, Catholics fought for the right of Catholic Indian parents to send their children to Catholic schools, for the restoration of rations to Indian children in mission schools, for the use of Indian trust and treaty funds as mission school support, for Catholic religious instruction in government schools, and for the right of nuns to wear their religious habit when teaching. Principal actors in these struggles were the Bureau of Indian Catholic Missions, the Indian Rights Association (a Protestant organization), federal agencies and officials, and the federal courts. Appendices include a Sioux petition for a Catholic contract school, a mission school contract, and general regulations for religious worship and instruction in government Indian schools. Contains references, notes, a bibliography, photographs, and an index. (Sv)
