"This volume is a success as both history and ethnography and presents a useful case study of Native cultural resistance and adaptation to pervasive efforts at detribalization and assimilation. It also emphasizes the research value of tribal oral history and illustrates how such histories might be collected and preserved for future generations." John M.
