About this Item

320 p. Endpaper Maps. Illustrations. Chronology. Notes. Index. James Welch, a Blackfoot and Gros Ventre Indian, uses the story of his involvement in the making of a documentary film about the Battle of the Little Bighorn to present the Native American perspective on this and other battles. Welch takes an intimate and personal approach in showing how his perspective, and the perspective of his fellow Native Americans, still clashes with the accepted historical representation of the massacres seen in American contemporary popular culture. First edition. Stated. Presumed first printing. Bookseller Inventory # 58154
