Description

Klappentext Volume 252 in the Civilization of the American Indian Series. Contrary to the impression left by James Fenimore Cooper's famous novel Last of the Mohicans! the Mohican people! also known as the Stockbridge-Munsee Indians! did not disappear from history. Rather! despite obstacles! they have retained their tribal identity to this day. In this first history of the modern-day Mohicans! James W. Oberly narrates their story from the time of their relocation to Wisconsin through the post-World War II era. Since the War of 1812 Mohican history has been marked by astute if sometimes bitter engagement with the American political system! resulting in five treaties and ten acts of Congress! passed between 1843 and 1972. As Oberly traces these political events! he also assesses such issues as tribal membership! intratribal political parties! and sovereignty.
