Fowler examines the Arapaho gender system and its transformations by considering the partnerships between, rather than focusing on comparisons of, women and men. Over time Arapahos both reinforced and challenged Arapaho hierarchies while accommodating and resisting American dominance. Fowler shows how, in the process of reconfiguring their world, Arapahos confronted Americans by uniting behind strategies of conciliation in the early nineteenth century, of civilization in the late nineteenth century, and of confrontation in the early twentieth century.
At the same time, women and men in particular cohorts were revamping Arapaho politicoreligious ideas and organizations. Gender played a part in these transformations, giving shape to new leadership traditions and other adaptations. Ackerman and Laura F. Robertson, Danny Law, and Robbie A.

In this timely book, national security expert Max G. Manwaring explores a little-understood actor on the stage of irregular warfare—the gang. Since the end of the Cold War, some one hundred insurgencies or irregular wars have erupted throughout the world. Gangs have figured prominently in more than half of those conflicts, yet these and other nonstate actors have received little focused attention from scholars or analysts. This book fills that void. Employing a case study approach, and believing that shadows from the past often portend the future, Manwaring begins with a careful consideration of the writings of V.

In this thorough account, Thomas Lee Ballenger traces the history of Cherokee justice from its traditional beginnings to the development of its modern-day institutions.

Together, these executives played a major role in developing the modern American West and in building the structures we associate with it.

By Stephen G. Hyslop A systematic study of the effects of federal Indian policy in western Oregon. In , the trail became the means for American seizure of Mexican territory—yet the economic and cultural exchanges continued even in the midst of war. Hyslop draws on eyewitness accounts to retrace the journey from Missouri to New Mexico, weaving together nearly one hundred accounts by scores of people who traveled the trail.
Stephen G. Hyslop is an independent scholar who has written extensively on American history and the Spanish-American frontier. He served as editor of a volume series on American Indians for Time-Life Books and is coauthor of several books published by the National Geographic Society. From to in western Oregon, the Native peoples along the Rogue River outmaneuvered and repeatedly drove off white opponents. While their resilience facilitated their success in adjusting to white society, it also made the people known today as the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians susceptible to federal termination programs in the s—efforts that would have dissolved their communities and given their resources to non-Indians.
Drawing on a range of federal documents and anthropological sources, Schwartz explores both the history of Native peoples of western Oregon and U. Indian policy and its effects. It is refreshing to read an account that covers so much of the twentieth century. Paul A.

Viola experienced forced assimilation in an Indian boarding school, overcame racial stereotypes to pursue a college degree, and spent several years working at a Japanese American internment camp during World War II. Vineyards and Vaqueros is an insightful and carefully nuanced study, one that deserves a place in the library of every student of California history.
This first volume in the new series Before Gold: California under Spain and Mexico explores for the first time Native contributions to early Southern California. Opening with a survey of the economic dimension of traditional southern California Indian cultures, Phillips then examines the origins and collapse of the missions, the emergence and expansion of the pueblo of Los Angeles, and the creation and decline of the ranchos.
While concentrating on the Tongvas Gabrielinos , Phillips also considers Indians who entered the region from the south. He describes the work they performed and how their relations evolved with the missionaries, settlers, and rancheros who employed them. Phillips emphasizes the importance of Indian labor in shaping the economic history of what is now Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside counties.
Featuring more than two-dozen illustrations and maps, Vineyards and Vaqueros demonstrates that no history of the region is complete without a consideration of the Indian contribution. First Printer By George L. Pauley and Carol M. He is the author of numerous articles and books on California and its Native peoples. Larom became so enamored of the magnificent wilderness environment and the prospects of becoming a dude rancher that he abandoned his life as a New York socialite. A welcome study of early dude ranch development, Dude Ranching in Yellowstone Country preserves the history of an important Wyoming ranch and the man who built it.
The purchase of Valley Ranch coincided with the opening of Yellowstone to automobile traffic and the onset of World War I. Valley Ranch benefited as western parks and dude ranches became destinations for weary city dwellers and travelers looking for a vacation alternative to war-torn Europe. Besides making the ranch a success, Larom became a civic leader in Cody, Wyoming, a nationally recognized conservationist, and a founder and longtime president of the Dude Ranchers Association.
