A Century of Dishonor
Digital Scanning Inc, May 1, 2001 - History - 532 pages
Originally published over 100 years ago, A Century of Dishonor is Helen Jackson's eye- opening sketch of the U.S. government's often shameful mishandling of what was called the ?Indian problem'. Using official documents as authentic research materials, Jackson asserts that the government and citizens of the United States were the cause of the ?problems?, and not the Native peoples. Broken treaties, inhuman treatment, restricted to reservations unfit for habitation or traditional lifestyle'all of these actions were taken against Indian tribes by a government that treated them with less consideration and compassion than that of a foreign country Copyright © Libri GmbH.
