The received idea of Native American history--as promulgated by books like Dee Brown's mega-bestselling 1970 Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee--has been that American Indian history essentially ended with the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee. Not only did one hundred fifty Sioux die at the hands of the U. S. Cavalry, the sense was, but Native civilization did as well. Growing up Ojibwe on a reservation in Minnesota, training as an anthropologist, and researching Native life past and present for his nonfiction and novels, David Treuer has uncovered a different narrative. Because they did not disappear--and not despite but rather because of their intense struggles to preserve their language, their traditions, their families, and their very existence--the story of American Indians since the end of the nineteenth century to the present is one of unprecedented resourcefulness and reinvention. In The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee, Treuer melds history with reportage and memoir. Tracing the tribes' distinctive cultures from first contact, he explores how the depredations of each era spawned new modes of survival. The devastating seizures of land gave rise to increasingly sophisticated legal and political maneuvering that put the lie to the myth that Indians don't know or care about property. The forced assimilation of their children at government-run boarding schools incubated a unifying Native identity. Conscription in the US military and the pull of urban life brought Indians into the mainstream and modern times, even as it steered the emerging shape of self-rule and spawned a new generation of resistance. The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee is the essential, intimate story of a resilient people in a transformative era.… (mer)

Actual Rating: 4.5/5 stars
Review: This was a really well thought out and well done book. We don’t tend to talk about Native American history after Wounded Knee, instead focusing on how white people progressed on the American continent. I couldn’t give it a full 5 of 5 stars due to the breakdown of chapters being a tiny bit confusing. ( )

There's been a lot of attention recently to how poorly we are taught about the history of race in America. Much of that focuses on our relationship with African-Americans. Our knowledge of American Indian history and culture is even poorer. Treuer's book made me realize how ignorant I am--and at that, I probably knew more than a lot of Americans.

The initial section is a potted history of Indians prior to 1890, the year of Wounded Knee. It's interesting and points up a lot of details that are often omitted to school kids--not just the history of broken treaties, but the ways the US government moved many tribes and effectively created some modern groups by pushing tribes together. Treuer's book emphasizes the diversity of Indian life and culture.

As the book progresses towards modern times, it becomes less a traditional history, and more about the stories of Indians themselves. The politics are covered fairly thoroughly, but Treuer allows Indians from different parts of the US to tell their own stories and remind us that Indians aren't just historical figures, but part of a living culture that has changed and adapted over time both through coercion and by choice.

Essential reading. I really appreciated its scope and found it so much more engaging than the book it aims to reframe. ( )

My favorite non-fiction books usually combine a strong personal narrative within the subject matter, and David Treuer does just that in The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee. Treuer grew up on a reservation in Minnesota, and he weaves the stories of family and friends into the brutal history of Native Americans. Treuer does an excellent job of chronicling hundreds of years of injustice and mistreatment with lots of primary documents and interviews. His intimate connection to the material and interesting outlook on current events definitely heightens the book. I highly recommend this to non-fiction readers who want to expand their understanding of Native American events and history. ( )

This is a great book about native Americans in the United States since the Wounded Knee massacre. The author begins with precolonial native life up to Wounded Knee but focuses and what has happened since. The author has done a vast amount of research on a plethora of tribal groups across the United States. There are extensive interviews with tribal elders, leaders and regular folks.. The author's thesis seems to be that while natives have suffered a myriad of injustices he sees a Renaissance in native culture, strength and in population growth occurring currently. I learned a lot. ( )
