Through primary source historical images and the tragic narrative of broken treaties, relocations, and armed conflict, it brings the inspiring resistance and fight for self-determination of Native Americans into the hands of your readers. It also contextualizes these struggles with modern ones, including the American Indian Movement and ongoing tribal anti-pipeline protests.
