Donald L. Fixico (Shawnee, Sac and Fox, Muscogee Creek, and Seminole) is Distinguished Foundation Professor of History and Affiliate Faculty of American Indian Studies at Arizona State University.Review:
"It is no small irony that after Native Americans had been forced onto reservations on land that nobody wanted, a wealth of natural resources would be discovered under those lands. Fixico . . . documents the continuing struggle Native Americans have faced to control their lives and their land." —Booklist "Fixico's brilliant study . . . is more than an insightful examination of the fraud and violence experienced by the Osage, Creek, and other individuals and nations at the hands of greedy corporations and 'gold diggers'. It covers recent efforts of the Indian governments to gain adequate compensation and protection for their resources. [The Invasion of Indian Country in the Twentieth Century] fills a vast void in our understanding of Indian-white relations." —James Riding-In, Arizona State University "This volume should be on the shelf of anyone interested in the development of the American West and the struggle for the rich resources contained in the region." —R. David Edmunds, University of Texas at Dallas "This is a significant study by a major Native scholar [that] demonstrates eloquently the challenges that have confronted Native peoples and the ways in which Indian nations have attempted to gain control over the own natural resources." —Peter Iverson, Arizona State University
