Dee Brown's eloquent, meticulously documented account of the systematic destruction of the American Indian during the second half of the nineteenth century uses council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions. Brown allows great chiefs and warriors of the Dakota, Ute, Sioux, Cheyenne, and other tribes to tell us in their own words of the battles, massacres, and broken treaties that finally left them demoralized and defeated ...… (mer)

Reading this floored me. Absolutely made me so disappointed in my cultures history and current teachings. We are taught absolutely nothing in school about how we treat the Native Americans. Seriously all High School's in the United States should be required to read this. We deserve to know the past so we can change the future. ( )

“As someone else once said, if studying history makes you feel happy and proud, you probably aren’t really studying history”. I saw this in NYRB article on something else, but thought it fit here.

I’d bought this book years ago but kept putting off reading it because I knew it would be a difficult read. I’d read enough elsewhere and from travels in the west and southwest picked up enough knowledge to know the broad outlines of many of these stories. What prompted me to pick it up finally was another NYRB review of a series of books examining the rise of Naziism that stated that the Nazis studied the US genocide of Native Americans to use as a road map to exterminate the Jews.

I would read a chapter and then set it aside, then come back to it. What we did is reprehensible. Too often it was the same story over and over: meet, negotiate, and when negotiations didn’t go the way the Whites wanted, exterminate. Not just the warriors, but women and children too. I’ve read elsewhere about how WWII was the first use of “total warfare” that included civilian populations, but that’s a lie. It certainly happened in our treatment of the Indians, and if you look back in history, it’s happened before.

Yuri Kami in his “Steinbeck’s View of Man and Nature” (see Travels With Charley) writes how minorities had to force themselves to be assimilated into WASP culture but that two minorities didn’t follow this path: Blacks (who were rejected because of racial prejudice) and Native Americans (“who fiercely defended themselves from the invasion from whites”). Invasion is the accurate word here.

We were certainly sold a different story with the 1950’s movies of the “heroic” US Calvary “defending” settlers from hostile redskins.

And little of what Brown presents here is taught, though there may be here and there some references to Wounded Knee or the Trail of Tears.

And the assault hasn’t ended, as the take over of Alcatraz demonstrated. Or the heaps of radioactive discards from uranium mining operations on or adjacent to reservations makes clear. Or just the conditions on reservations themselves. The actions of the recent Trump administration introduced a new word to my vocabulary: immiserate. We’ve been engaged in this for a long time with Native Americans.

Or my quietly having to pull a colleague aside - who deemed themselves politically correct in all things - and explain that using “gone off the reservation” was pejorative and demeaning to Native Americans.

And as to other reviews in Goodreads that attempt to decry this book as “one sided” - well, duh! The front cover says it’s “An Indian History of the American West”

And with the 2021 Biden withdrawal from Afghanistan, so much media spoke about the end of our longest war; except…I read one letter to the editor in WaPo from a Native American that, no, our longest war had been the genocide against his people.

11/10/21 update: am reading Lundqvist’s Exterminate All The Brutes” and he states “108: About five million of the indigenous American population lived in what is now the United States. At the beginning of the 19th century, half a million still remained. In 1891, at the time of Wounded Knee - the last great massacre of Indians in the United States - the native population reached rock bottom: a quarter of a million, or five percent of the original number of Indians.”
Appalling. ( )

Some great true stories of the American West, I got quite wrapped up in this book. ( )

Eye opening, thought provoking, life changing, painful book with more information than can be absorbed in multiple readings. ( )

Actual Rating: 4.5 stars
Review: This book was fantastically written. I’m really glad I listened to this as an audiobook, because I don’t think I would have gotten through it as a physical book. (Although I definitely want a copy of the physical book now.) Dee Brown focuses a lot on the battles and skirmishes between the Americans and American Indians that took place in the latter half of the nineteenth century, which is a great way to go about it. Personally, I’m not a huge military history buff, but I definitely think that it was the right choice for the book. We often tend to focus on the white American view of many of these battles instead of the American Indian view, which is precisely what Dee Brown gives in this book. And it’s the view we need to hear to this day. ( )
