The Rogue River Indian War and Its Aftermath, 1850-1980

The Rogue River Indian War and Its Aftermath, 1850-1980 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From 1855 to 1856 in western Oregon, the Native peoples along the Rogue River outmaneuvered and repeatedly drove off white opponents. In The Rogue River Indian War and Its Aftermath, 1850–1980, historian E. A. Schwartz explores the tribal groups’ resilience not only during this war but also in every period of federal Indian policy that followed.

Schwartz’s work examines Oregon Indian people’s survival during American expansion as they coped with each federal initiative, from reservation policies in the nineteenth century through termination and restoration in the twentieth. While their resilience facilitated their success in adjusting to white society, it also made the people known today as the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians susceptible to federal termination programs in the 1970s—efforts that would have dissolved their communities and given their resources to non-Indians.

Drawing on a range of federal documents and anthropological sources, Schwartz explores both the history of Native peoples of western Oregon and U.S. Indian policy and its effects.

Synopsis:

From 1855 to 1856 in western Oregon, the Native peoples along the Rogue River outmaneuvered and repeatedly drove off white opponents. In The Rogue River Indian War and Its Aftermath, 1850–1980, historian E. A. Schwartz explores the tribal groups’ resilience not only during this war but also in every period of federal Indian policy that followed.

Synopsis:

This history of the native peoples of western Oregon is a systematic study of the formation, application and effects of United States Indian policy. Historian E. A. Schwartz tells how contacts with whites early in the nineteenth century culminated in the pork-barrel Rogue River War of 1855-56, in which the Rogue River peoples demonstrated superior tactics and repeatedly drove off more-numerous opponents. Schwartz narrates how the Indian peoples known today as the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Reservation survived American expansion and coped with each federal Indian-policy initiative, from the new western reservation policy of the 1850s through termination and restoration in the 1970s.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 325-343) and index.
