Abstract:

More than 60 historical documents related to the struggle of American Indian nations to preserve their sovereignty from the first resistance to the European invasions of the Americas up to and including the present are contained in this chronicle. Covering the period from 1622 to 1978, this updated version is expanded to include documents generated by the resurgence of the Indian protest movement during the 1970's. Organized under 29 topics or time periods, the book includes a discussion preceding each document or set of documents giving the setting and events leading up to its issuance. Some postscripts to documents are included, relating subsequent events or uses of a document. The chronicle begins with "A Declaration of the State of the Colony and Affairs in Virginia", relating to the attack by the Powhatan Confederacy on white settlements and ends with material from the seventies such as the Trail of Broken Treaties, Wounded Knee, Geneva Conference, Land Claims Cases and Trust Responsibility, and the Longest Walk. Intervening sections include pronouncements by American Indians and documentation about the Native American struggle, including such personages and events as Geronimo, Cochise, Chief Joseph, the Pueblo revolt in Taos, Tecumtha, Black Hawk, Memorial and Protest of the Cherokee Nation, Red Cloud's War, Sitting Bull, the Navajo and the New Deal, and Alacatraz Reclaimed.
