This history of the Crow Indians links their nineteenth-century nomadic life and their modern existence. The Crows not only withstood the dislocation and conquest visited on them after 1805, but acted in the midst of these events to construct a modern Indian community--a nation. Their efforts sustained the pride and strength reflected in Chief Plenty Coups' statement in 1925 that he did "not care at all what historians have to say about Crow Indians," as well as their community's faith in the beauty of its traditions and its inventions. Frederick E. Hoxie demonstrates that contact with outsiders drew the Crows together and tested their ability to adapt their traditions to new conditions. He emphasizes political life, but also describes changes in social relations, religious beliefs, and economic activities. His final chapter discusses the significance of the Crow experience for American history in general.

Review:

"...Hoxie's work is a welcome addition to our understanding of how native people adjusted to the advance of American society and its capitalistic economy." American Historical Review

"...Hoxie has carefully researched archival evidence and has applied his field work on the Crow Reservation in order to present a better understanding of Crow survival amidst historical change. This book is strongly recommended..." Western Historical Quarterly

"Frederick E. Hoxie makes an important contribution to our understanding of the West and its original inhabitants. Wonderfully written, hugely informative, Parading Through History will go down as the history of the Crow Nation." James Welch, author of Killing Custer

"Parading through History" is an important and thought-provoking work. Frederick Hoxie presents a story of the perseverance and adaptation that led to the construction of a modern Indian community....Parading through History deepens our understanding of Crow history and answers a long-felt need to examine how this people creatively adapted to changing circumstances while retaining a distinctive crow identity. It also raises many exciting new questions in Crow history." Martha Foster, American Indian Culture and Research Journal
