Synopsis: The Osage Indians were a powerful group of Native Americans who lived along the prairies and plains of present-day Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. Despite their power and critical role, however, little has been written about these prairie people. In The Osage: An Ethnohistorical Study of Hegemony on the Prairie-Plains, Willard Rollings shows how the Osage formed and maintained political, economic, and social control over a large portion of the central United States for over 150 years.
Rollings first establishes the Osage people's culture and history, including their political and religious beliefs. He then traces a series of fateful encounters the Osage had with the Europeans and Americans who entered their territory and with many groups of other Native Americans. Throughout, the Osage are shown to be a resilient and flexible people; they were able to retain their long-held traditions while making adaptations that enabled them to survive and prosper. Finally, however, a combination of disease, rapid social change, and political disunity encouraged by influential men such as Auguste and Pierre Chouteau served to break the Osage's hold on their territory, and by the mid-nineteenth century the Osage hegemony had come to an end.
Combining traditional historical analysis with recent research in archaeology, cultural anthropology, sociology, biology, and animal ecology, Rollings has written a history of these complex people that places them in their proper cultural context. This ethnohistorical approach makes The Osage: An Ethnohistorical Study of Hegemony on the Prairie-Plains invaluable to anyone interested in the study of the Osage, American history and culture, or the American Indian in general.

From the Back Cover: The Osage Indians were a powerful group of Native Americans who lived along the prairies and plains of present-day Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. The Osage: An Ethnohistorical Study of Hegemony on the Prairie-Plains, now available in paper, shows how the Osage formed and maintained political, economic, and social control over a large portion of the central United States for more than 150 years.
