The Sac and Fox Indians by William T Hagan( Book )

22 editions published between 1953 and 1989 in English and held by 1,648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of all the aboriginal tribes of the Americas none had a more courageous or tragic destiny than the twin tribes of the Mississippi Valley, the Sacs and the Foxes. Occupying a parkland area midway between the powerful Iroquois and Sioux tribes in present Illinois and Wisconsin, the Sacs and the Foxes were prosperous agrarian people who held their own against their more numerous neighbors. The white frontier moved threateningly closer, and in the War of 1812 the Sacs and the Foxes, resisting the Americans' encroachment on their lands, joined forces with the British. Black Hawk, the great Sac and Fox leader, refused to accept land cessions to the whites, and in 1832 the tribes worst fears came true: a group of white squatters claimed the site of Black Hawk's village in Illinois. In the 'war' that followed, Black Hawk and his force retreated before an overwhelming force of whites and were virtually wiped out in a battle at the mouth of the Bad Axe River in Wisconsin. Pushed out onto the plains, the remnants of the tribes had to contend with the dominant Comanches. Their destiny had been changed forever"--Publisher's description
Theodore Roosevelt and six friends of the Indian by William T Hagan( )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Theodore Roosevelt and Six Friends of the Indian, William T. Hagan describes the efforts by six prominent individuals and two institutions to influence the conduct of Indian affairs during the administrations of President Theodore Roosevelt. The institutions are the Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions and the Indian Rights Association. The six men are Francis E. Leupp, Herbert Welsh, C. Hart Merriam, George Bird Grinnell, Charles F. Lummis, and Hamlin Garland. Each of these men attempted to influence the implementation of Indian policy. All had had some contact with Roosevelt prior to his presidency, and some had sought his intercession on Indian affairs when he served as Civil Service commissioner, governor of New York, and U.S. vice president. As a result of these contacts, Roosevelt entered the White House relatively well informed on tribal affairs. As president he proved remarkably responsive to the six men's views, even when it brought him into conflict with members of his own cabinet. Hagan outlines the divisions along religious lines and the political rivalries behind the contest for the support of President Roosevelt. The vagaries of Indian administration by the federal government are evident, as is the unfortunate situation of noncitizen tribal peoples living as wards of the United States. Theodore Roosevelt and Six Friends of the Indian presents to the reader a new Roosevelt who differs from the Indian-hating chauvinist so frequently encountered in the literature. This book reveals that in fact Roosevelt sympathized with the plight of the Indians and respected their institutions and culture
Quanah Parker, Comanche chief by William T Hagan( Book )

18 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and French and held by 1,206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quanah Parker is a figure of almost mythical proportions on the Southern Plains. The son of Cynthia Parker, a white captive whose subsequent return to white society and early death had become a Texas frontier legend, Quanah rose from able warrior to tribal leader on the Comanche reservation. Other books about Quanah Parker have been incomplete, are outdated, or are lacking in scholarly analysis. William T. Hagan, the author of United States-Comanche Relations, knows Comanche history. This new biography, written in a crisp and readable style, is a well-balanced portrait of Quanah Parker, the chief, and Quanah, the man torn between two worlds. Between 1875 and his death in 1911, Quanah strove to cope with the changes confronting tribal members. Dealing with local Indian agents and with presidents and other high officials in Washington, he faced the classic dilemma of a leader caught between the dictates of an occupying power and the wrenching physical and spiritual needs of his people. Quanah was never one to decline the perquisites of leadership. Texas cattlemen who used his influence to gain access to reservation grass for their herds rewarded him liberally. They financed some of his many trips to Washington and helped him build a home that remains to this day a tourist attraction. Such was his fame that Teddy Roosevelt invited him to take part in his inaugural parade and subsequently intervened personally to help him and the Comanches as their reservation dissolved. Maintaining a remarkable blend of progressive and traditional beliefs, Quanah epitomized the Indian caught in the middle. Valued by almost all Indian agents with whom he dealt, he nevertheless practiced polygamy and the peyote religion - both contrary to government policy. Other Indians functioned as middlemen, but through his force and intelligence, and his romantic origins, Quanah Parker achieved unparalleled success and enduring renown. -- Publisher description

"Herbert Welsh (December 4, 1851? 1941) was a United States political reformer and worker for the welfare of the indigenous peoples of North America ... Welsh became known as an earnest advocate for the rights of Indians, a calling triggered by a visit to the Sioux Reservation in 1882. In 1883, his actions resulted in the founding of the Indian Rights Association in Philadelphia, and he served as its corresponding secretary for 34 years and its president for 11 years. Over the next 30 plus years, he urged the public and the United States Congress to provide education for Indian children, holding of lands in severalty by the Indians, and to extend civil law to their reservations."--Wikipedia
