Clyde Warrior: Tradition, Community, and Red Power by Paul R. McKenzie-Jones (review)

Clyde Warrior: Tradition, Community, and Red Power by Paul R. McKenzie-Jones (review) Book Reviews Paul R. McKenzie-Jones. Clyde Warrior: Tradition, Community, and Red Power. Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 2015. 234 pp. Cloth, $29.95. Daniel M. Cobb, University of North Carolina­Chapel Hill Ponca activist Clyde Merton Warrior (1939­68) served a pivotal role in the emergence of the Native youth movement of the 1960s. Although his life and his life's work have been discussed in a variety of different contexts by many scholars, Paul McKenzie-Jones offers readers the first book-length exploration of this fascinating and important figure. In so doing, McKenzie-Jones provides fresh insights rooted in heretofore underutilized archival sources and a good number of oral interviews. Clyde Warrior features seven more or less chronologically arranged chapters bookended by a prologue and an epilogue. The prologue and first chapter seek to contextualize Clyde Warrior's activism in the history of the Ponca people. During the late nineteenth century, the Poncas were forcibly removed from their ancestral homeland in presentday Nebraska to what is now north-central Oklahoma. They would find no peace there. Even as the Poncas reconstructed a sense of place and community, they confronted pressures to allot their lands and, along with that allotment, efforts to exploit their resources, particularly oil. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The American Indian Quarterly University of Nebraska Press
