The Fox wars : the Mesquakie challenge to New France by R. David Edmunds( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the saga of the Fox (or Mesquakie) Indians' struggle to maintain their identity in the face of colonial New France during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries." "The Foxes occupied central Wisconsin, where for a long time they had warred with the Sioux and, more recently, had opposed the extension of the French firearm-and-fur trade with their western enemies. Caught between the Sioux anvil and the French hammer, the Foxes enlisted other tribes' support and maintained their independence until the late 1720s. Then the French treacherously offered them peace before launching a campaign of annihilation against them. The Foxes resisted valiantly, but finally were overwhelmed and took sanctuary among the Sac Indians, with whom they are closely associated to this day."--Jacket

Enduring nations : Native Americans in the Midwest( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Enduring Nations documents how tribal peoples have adapted to cultural change while shaping midwestern history. Examining the transformation of Native American communities, which often occurred in response to shifting government policy, the contributors explore the role of women, controversial tribal enterprises and economies, social welfare practices, and native peoples' frequent displacement to locations such as reservations and urban centers. Central to both past and contemporary discussions of Native American cultural change is whether Native American identity should be determined by genetics, shared cultural values, or a combination of the two."--Jacket

The people. a history of Native America by R. David Edmunds( Recording )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a chronological and ethnographic approach, this narrative surveys American Indian history from the arrival of humans on the American continent to the present day. The text gives balanced attention to political, economic, cultural, and social aspects of Indian history. [It] describes how the European invasion influenced American Indian communities, but gives greater attention to the impact of Native actions on the American environment. The text takes an Indian-centered point of view; it sees Indians as actors in their own right, existing in a larger society. Thus, some events in American history loom larger than they would in a general survey, while others, such as Reconstruction, receive minimal coverage. Balanced geographically, the text covers Eastern and Midwestern Indians as well as Western Indians.-http://www.booksinprint.com
