Book description
This is a thoroughly updated and expanded edition of Nancy Oestreich Lurie's seminal work on Native Americans living in the state. Wisconsin Indians introduces the history of Indian affairs from the founding of the United States to the beginning of the 21st century.

"Wisconsin continues to offer an unusual opportunity to understand the national Indian picture. Over the years the state has served as a kind of national laboratory for most of the government's policies and programs, while at the same time Wisconsin Indian tribes and organizations have exemplified and sometimes led in new developments to improve the lives of Indian people." -Nancy Oestreich Lurie, from the Preface
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0870203304, Paperback)

This best-selling short history of Wisconsin's native peoples is now updated and expanded to include events through the end of the twentieth century. From the treaty-making era to the reawakening of tribal consciousness in the 1960s to the profound changes brought about by Indian gaming, Lurie’s classic account remains the best concise treatment of the subject.
