In this second volume in the U. of Oklahoma Press' American Indian Law and Policy Series, Kidwell (Native American studies and history) recounts the political journey of the Choctaw people, who were removed from Mississippi in the 1830s under President Jackson and struggled to maintain their livelihood on new lands and confronted by fewer freedoms and the influence of Christian missionaries. The tribe's powerful government established the Choctaw Nation, and its dealings with the state and federal governments, as well as internal debates, are detailed here.
