The more than fifty documents gathered here are organized chronologically and thematically for ease in classroom and research use. They address the aspirations of Indigenous nations and individuals within Canada, Hawaii, and Alaska as well as the continental United States, placing their activism in both national and international contexts. The collection’s topical breadth, analytical framework, and emphasis on unpublished materials offer students and scholars new sources with which to engage and explore American Indian thought and political action.

“Native America in this book is as it should be: both diverse and uniform, individual and collective. . . . Don’t look to this book for neat answers; instead you’ll find the complexity and diversity that is most representative of Native nations today, yesterday, and in days to come.”--American Literary History
“An impressive collection. . . . [that features] resurgent and revitalized indigenous voices.”--Journal of American History
“[An] excellent new edited document collection. . . . [featuring] an impressive number of unfamiliar and unpublished sources. . . . [that] demonstrates Native American intellectuals’ and activists’ long tradition of engaging the surrounding majority society and wider world on Indigenous terms, for Indigenous purposes, and not at the expense of Indigeneity. . . . [It] should generate lively discussions among students. . . . [and] will be of great value for professional scholarship on Indian intellectual history, activism, sovereignty, self-determination, economic development, postcolonial resistance, and, of course, politics.”--Ethnohistory
“A powerful contribution to making visible previously invisible individuals and communities, as well as tribal and multitribal political activities.”--American Indian Quarterly
“A must-have book for both individuals and libraries collecting works on Native American and Indigenous studies, history, and politics. . . . Highly recommended.”--Choice
“A well-researched, valuable resource for scholars and educators in history, anthropology, and Native American studies.”--H-Net
