Format: Paperback
Patty Loew takes a novel approach in this book and uses Native American sources to tell Native American history! Oral history, treaty minutes, recorded speeches by Native American leaders, and other Native sources are used over the traditional "white" sources that make up the majority of Native American history. The book reads extremely well and is intensely interesting. Each chapter tells the story of a Wisconsin Indian nation from the point of view of that nation. This is an enjoyable book to read for anyone interested in Native American history. Moreover, it is an invaluable addition to scholarship and a (hopefully) trend-setting example of using Native sources to tell Native history.

This is used as a textbook for one of my American Indian Studies courses this semester and I love it. The author wrote it as a book of history so it doesn't feel or read like a boring textbook. Loew relies on oral history and many Native texts to really get the Indian history as accurate as possible, she tried hard to leave out the white American influences and assumptions. This should be a must for anyone interested in Native history.

I was very pleasantly surprised when I found who Patty Loew is and her background as an Ojibway.I remember her as a newsperson on the 5:30 news. This book is very nice in making it very clear who the tribes are that reside in Wisconsin, where they came from, how they got here and what they are doing now. I must be clear, this is an overview, not a extensive, study those are already available from many sources.I enjoyed the book very much and it was an easy read and well written.

I am a preservice teaching and used this book to learn more about the Native American cultures in Wisconsin. I live in Northeast WI and know that I will encounter Native American students throughout my career. It is essential to have an understanding of their past and present.
