Rate this:
From struggles over land reclamation to the public controversy surrounding the remains of the Kennewick Man, treaties signed between Native Americans and the U.S. government continue to shape the relationship between Native Americans and the wider society. Eleven essays, presented by Johansen (communication and Native American studies, U. of Nebraska at Omaha), explore a small portion of this contested legal landscape, examining such topics (in addition to those mentioned above) as the 1794 Treaty of Canandaigua as the legal keystone of Iroquois land claims and governance issues; the treaty context of the Wounded Knee Massacre, treaty claims to oil rights by the Osage in Oklahoma, and the origins of the 1795 Greenville Treaty in the defeat of the U.S. Army in battles with Native Americans.
