Editorial Reviews


"...Hoxie's work is a welcome addition to our understanding of how native people adjusted to the advance of American society and its capitalistic economy." American Historical Review

"...Hoxie has carefully researched archival evidence and has applied his field work on the Crow Reservation in order to present a better understanding of Crow survival amidst historical change. This book is strongly recommended..." Western Historical Quarterly

"Frederick E. Hoxie makes an important contribution to our understanding of the West and its original inhabitants. Wonderfully written, hugely informative, Parading Through History will go down as the history of the Crow Nation." James Welch, author of Killing Custer

"Parading through History" is an important and thought-provoking work. Frederick Hoxie presents a story of the perseverance and adaptation that led to the construction of a modern Indian community....Parading through History deepens our understanding of Crow history and answers a long-felt need to examine how this people creatively adapted to changing circumstances while retaining a distinctive crow identity. It also raises many exciting new questions in Crow history." Martha Foster, American Indian Culture and Research Journal

"Hoxie provides a unique view of tribal structure....Parading through History is highly recommended reading. Well written and researched, it offers a significant new approach to tribal history, one that other scholars are sure to follow." Robert A. Trennert, Montana Reviews

"Parading through History is the most penetrating and intellectually challenging book available on modern Crow history and politics....It is an essential book for any further examination and analysis of Crow history and intercultural dynamics." C. Adrian Heidenreich

Book Description

Exploring the links between the nineteenth-century nomadic life of the Crow Indians and their modern existence, this book demonstrates that dislocation and conquest by outsiders drew the Crows together by testing their ability to adapt their traditions to new conditions.

Format: Hardcover
This well researched text provides great insight into the Crow Indian culture. Beginning with earliest recorded written accounts, proceding through the forced move of the Crow, or Apslaloke, from historic homelands and concentrated on their modern day reservation, this is an excellent introduction or supplement to a basic understanding of this plains nation. There is a lot of first person quotes, good photo documentation and scholarly posings. The book concludes with a interesting analysis of Chief Plenty Coups presentation at the dedication of the tomb of the unknown soldier and it's meaning as representative of Native American society at that time.

This is a relatively obscure book about the history of the Crows up to ca. 1935. Very well written and full of research and references by author Hoxie. I'm only into it about 25% but have enjoyed each page. If you're interested in learning more about the early history of the Crows or the impact of Westward expansion and the fur trade on Missouri River and Transmontane tribes, you'll find this book enlightening and a good read.
