Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Weaving Indian and Euro-American histories together in this groundbreaking book, Sami Lakomand#228;ki places the Shawnee people, and Native peoples in general, firmly at the center of American history. The bookand#160;covers nearly three centuries, from the years leading up to the Shawneesand#8217; first European contacts to the postand#150;Civil War era, and demonstrates vividly how the interactions between Natives and newcomers transformed the political realities and ideas of both groups.

and#160;

Examining Shawnee society and politics in new depth, and introducing not only charismatic warriors like Blue Jacket and Tecumseh but also other leaders and thinkers, Lakomand#228;ki explores the Shawnee peopleand#8217;s debates and strategies for coping with colonial invasion. The author refutes the deep-seated notion that only European colonists created new nations in America, showing that the Shawnees, too, were engaged in nation building. With a sharpened focus on the creativity and power of Native political thought, Lakomand#228;ki provides an array of insights into Indian as well as American history.
