Description

In the nine essays in this volume, Laurence M Hauptman, drawing on twenty-five years of teaching American Indian history, selects topics from the seventeenth century to the present as examples of some commonly held but erroneous views on Indian-white relations, including campaigns to pacify and Christianize Indians, policies of removal, and stereotypes of Indians (such as Louis Francis Sockalexis ) as mascots for sports teams or Hollywood film sidekicks (Jay Silverheels as Tonto). In chapter 3 the author takes several shots at the historians and writers who proclaim the Iroquois constitution had an influence on America's founding fathers in the drafting of the USA constitution.
