An important history of Native-white relations seen through Indian eyes and told through Indian voices. 

 

 

From prophecies about the arrival of the strangers all the way to prophecies about the end of all things, this revised and updated edition of Native American Testimony is an important history of Native-white relations seen through Indian eyes and told through Indian voices. As such, it’s an outstanding compilation of primary source documents—spanning more than 500 years—in one readable volume. In his foreword, Vine Deloria, Jr., quotes Sitting Bull: “The love of possession is a disease among them.” “In various ways,” Deloria writes about Native American Testimony, “these selections demonstrate the Indian response to this disease, their commentaries on the behavior which such a disease engenders, and the impact that such actions had on the native peoples.” Much of the material presented here will not be found elsewhere, especially in history textbooks; Native American Testimony is “must” reading for high school students.
