Abstract:

This brief book by journalist Trahant provides persuasive evidence that today's Indian battles are fought in courts, legislative committees, and national media outlets. Furthermore, it demonstrates a growing level of sophistication that tribes have amassed in their successful struggles during the past 40 years. Ironically, Senator Henry M. "Scoop" Jackson helped promote the Termination Act of 1953, which economically devastated many tribes. Yet, as powerful chair of the Senate Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, he gradually came to understand Native American viewpoints and he hired Forrest Gerard (Blackfoot Nation) in 1971 to help formulate bills. Together, they oversaw passage of bills important to economic development, education, and health care for both reservation and urban Indians. Furthermore, Jackson authored Senate Concurrent Resolution 26 in 1971 to disavow the termination process, and he helped restore the full rights of some tribes that previously had been terminated. Based upon articles from a wide spectrum of Native American newspapers and interviews with primary players in this story, the book offers an insider's view of how Indian legislation evolved from a punitive philosophy of termination to a creative spirit of self-determination that increased governing authority for the tribes.
