Format: Hardcover
While I respect Steve Beckham as a scholar he fails to realize that he perpetuates the colonial mentality that he references by considering himself as the authority on Oregon's indigenous peoples. We do NOT need our voices constantly funneled through the lens of a white academic or through any voice other than those who own the stories: tribal peoples of Oregon! We are well educated and can speak for ourselves. The colonial mentality that is endemic in this nation that screams that we NEED the perspectives and insights from non-Natives is what continually enforces racism. Celebrate us and the historic accomplishments that are 100,000 years old, but do not come in and crown yourself as the expert on our cultures, stories, histories and spirituality. We have and continue to survive 500 years of genocidal practices focused on our complete elimination. If non-Natives want to support us, mentor Native historians and the authentic voices of the people, open doors for our publications, encourage Native students and families to become their respective tribal storykeepers. Tribal sovereignty includes recognizing us as citizens and members both of our tribes and of this country--a country that continually resists acknowledging our extensive ways of knowing and that we can and do speak for ourselves, our ancestors and with our people. Mr. Beckham, empower our kids by showing and supporting them as the real and authentic voices that they are and that the world deserves. All those who continue to appropriate our voices and world views, who "rescue" us and tell us that we need their perspectives tells another generation times seven that we have no voice.Read more ›

When I have needed to delve into the history of how Oregon's Indian tribes have been dealt with, this is one of the primary works I turn to and use. Lewis and Clark College's history professor has written other works, but this is comprehensive and often quotes the primary sources. The description of the Rogue Indian's pleas for justice after their long march up the Oregon coast is 1856 is one example that underscores the tragedy of how Oregon Indians have been treated.

Written in a scholarly manner, it can tax the casual reader at times, but provides depth and emotion not through the writing but in the history itself.

This is an excellent book that should be required reading for all Americans. It details the history and current lives of Native American's in Oregon, but also teaches everything you didn't learn in school about the settling of our country.
