Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In this book, first published in 1974 in the context of the declaration at Wounded Knee, noted Indian activist, legal scholar, and author Vine Deloria demonstrates that, far from being an ill-considered proposal, reopening treaty-making procedure would place the United States in the forefront of civilized nations in its treatment of the aboriginal peoples of the continent.

Format: Paperback
Vine Deloria Jr. was born in 1933 in Martin, South Dakota. He obtained a Master of Theology degree from the Lutheran School of Theology in Rock Island, Illinois in 1963 and a J.D. from the University of Colorado in 1970. His works, including "Custer Died for Your Sins", "We Talk, You Listen," and "God is Red" promote Native American cultural nationalism and a greater understanding of Native American history and philosophy. Vine Deloria's purpose in writing "Behind the Trail of Broken Treaties" is to demonstrate that the Native Americans have valid reasons for wanting to reopen the treaty-making procedure with the United States. He also states that by the United States accepting the proposal of the aboriginal Native Americans to honor all treaties as if the Native Americans were a foreign entity, the United States would be placing itself in the forefront of civilized nations in dealing with aboriginal peoples of a continent. The author's purpose is achieved through a close scrutiny of the Twenty Points assembled by Indian activists in St. Paul, Minnesota in December 1972. These points were believed to most fairly and adequately summarize the grievances of the various Native American tribes and suggested a reform program for the United States government to follow (48). The author not only examines the Twenty Points in great detail, but he also includes a summary of Native American history regarding their interaction with the Europeans. This summary begins with the colonists on the frontier. In chapter five, Deloria explains the colonists' idealogy of the doctrine of discovery.Read more ›
