An updated and revised edition of Patty Loew's Indian Nations of Wisconsin is now available, ISBN 9780870205033. From origin stories to contemporary struggles over treaty rights and sovereignty issues, Indian Nations of Wisconsin: Histories of Endurance and Renewal explores Wisconsin’s rich Native tradition. Each chapter is a compact tribal history of one of the state’s Indian nations—Ojibwe, Potawatomi, Oneida, Menominee, Mohican and Brothertown, and Ho-Chunk—and the book relies on the historical perspectives of Native people. Author Patty Loew focuses on oral tradition—stories, songs, the recorded words of Indian treaty negotiators, and interviews—as well as other untapped Native sources, such as tribal newspapers, to present a distinctly different view of history. Elders and tribal historians from each of the twelve Native communities represented in the book participated in the book’s development—making suggestions, recommending sources, and offering criticism. Indian Nations of Wisconsin is illustrated with more than seventy photographs.
