Abstract:

By the late 1880s, Americans were astounded by the changes they had brought to the West. Defeated militarily, Native Americans throughout the region flocked to the call of a Paiute mystic, who offered the hope that the lost world of the buffalo could be brought back by a Ghost Dance. But its promises would be trampled at Wounded Knee. In place of the great Native American cultures that once dominated the Plains was a new culture, epitomized by the Oklahoma Land Rush, in which 100,000 eager settlers lined up for a mad dash to stake out a farm and a future.
