From origin stories to contemporary struggles over treaty rights and sovereignty issues, the best-selling Indian Nations of Wisconsin: Histories of Endurance and Renewal explores Wisconsin’s rich Native tradition. This long-awaited revised edition includes new material reflecting contemporary historical events and initiatives of the twenty-first century, covering the economic, social, and environmental advancements of the Native communities. New chapters are devoted to discussions of urban Indians and the Brothertown Indian Nation.

This unique volume—based on the historical perspectives of the state’s Native peoples—includes compact tribal histories of the Ojibwe, Potawatomi, Oneida, Menominee, Mohican, Ho-Chunk, and Brothertown Indians. Patty Loew focuses on oral tradition—stories, songs, the recorded words of Indian treaty negotiators, and interviews—along with other untapped Native sources, such as tribal newspapers, to present a distinctly different view of history. Elders and tribal historians in each of the Native communities participated in the book’s development—recommending sources, making suggestions, and offering criticism as the book unfolded. And in two new forewords, Paul DeMain (editor of News From Indian Country) and J. P. Leary (assistant professor of Humanistic Studies–First Nation Studies at UW–Green Bay) help readers understand how the history Patty Loew chronicles in Indian Nations is the history of all of us.

Lavishly illustrated with maps and more than 140 photographs, Indian Nations of Wisconsin is indispensable to anyone interested in the region’s history and its Native peoples.

Patty Loew, Ph.D., is an enrolled member of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe and a recipient of the Outstanding Service Award of the Great Lakes Intertribal Council. She is a professor in the Department of Life Sciences Communication at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and affiliated faculty with the American Indian Studies Program.

For twenty years she hosted statewide news and public affairs programs for Wisconsin Public Television.

"Wisconsin's Indians"

Jim Gallen on Wednesday, October 02, 2013 9:40:29 PM

Comments: I must begin with an explanation of my reasons for reading this book. I am not an Indian and my exposure to them has come mostly in Western movies. As a frequent visitor to Wisconsin I am familiar with the Oneida Nation Gate at Lambeau Field and references to their casino on television had kindled a curiosity to know more about the people behind the gate. “The Indian Nations of Wisconsin” reveals the stories and the faces about which I had been curious. Author Patty Loew presents factual histori... More details
