Plains Indian History and Culture, an engaging collection of articles and essays, reflects John C. Ewers multifaceted approach to Indian history, an approach that combines his far-reaching interest in American history generally, his professional training in anthropology, and his many decades of experience as a field-worker and museum curator.

The author has drawn on interviews collected during a quarter-century of fieldwork with Indian elders, who in recalling their own experiences during the buffalo days, revealed unique insights into Plains Indian life. Ewers use his expertise in examining Indian-made artifacts and drawings as well as photographs taken by non-Indian artists who had firsthand contact with Indians. He throws new light on important changes in Plains Indian culture, on the history of intertribal relations, and on Indian relation with whites―traders, missionaries, soldiers, settlers, and the U.S. Government.

About the Author:

John C. Ewers (1909–1997), was the first curator of the Museum of the Plains Indian on the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana. Later he served as Director of what is now Smithsonian Institution's National Museum  of American History and was Ethnologost Emeritus with the Smithsonian.  His many publications include The Blackfeet: Raiders on the Northwestern Plains and Plains Indian History and Culture: Essays on Continuity and Change.

William T. Hagan is retired Professor of History at the University of Oklahoma. His numerous books on American Indian subjects include The Sac and Fox Indians; United States–Comanche Relations; Quanah Parker, Comanche Chief; and Theodore Roosevelt and Six Friends of the Indian, all published by the University of Oklahoma Press.

Review:

Plains Indian History And Culture is an engaging collection of articles and essays reflecting John Ewers multifaceted approach to native American history which also combines American history generally with anthropology, and the author's many decades of experience as a field-worker and museum curator. Drawing on a quarter-century of fieldwork with Native American elders (who recalled their own experiences during the buffalo days thus revealing unique insights in Plans Indian life), Ewers uses his expertise in examining Native American artifact and drawings, and his research into unpublished documents in archives and museums, as well as previously published contemporary accounts. Plains Indian History And Culture also explores the role of women in Plains Indian life (including warfare). Ewers also throws new light on important cultural changes , on intertribal relations, and relations with the whites. Plains Indian History And Culture is an important and much needed contribution towards a proper understanding of the history and evolution of Plains Indian culture and adjustments to the broader and pervasive national, white cultural influences. -- Midwest Book Review
