From Little Bighorn to Standing Rock
A modern story of indigenous people

A fully illustrated book that deals with the past and pre¬sent of Indigenous People on the Plains. The main focus of the book is the Lakota. The reason for this choice is not only that they fought longest and hard¬est for their land, or that they still fight, but also since they have a dramatic his-tory suitable for illustrating vio¬lation of treaties, land rob¬bery, assimilation and assaults to which Indige¬nous Americans have been ex¬posed during the past 500 years. The book includes an analysis of the legal and political consequences of that story.
