Abstract

I intend to teach this book to undergraduates through the U.S. history or in the Native survey. The author's approach opens opportunities for analyses of the significance of historical memory, public program politics, museum literacy, modern intertribal rivalries, modern Native academic relations, inconsistencies in the symbols Americans embrace, and human rights for Native North Americans living in the United States. The author writes in a fresh, engaging way that marks a departure from some of her earlier work. But I caution others who choose to teach this book to research the full story of the Minnesota Sesquicentennial controversy. The author's omission of the consequences of her intervention in the proposed language center leaves an incomplete picture that compromises efforts to teach the book. R. David Edmunds, ed. Enduring Nations: Native Americans in the Midwest. Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 2008. 296 pp. Cloth, $75.00; paper, $25.00. Doug Kiel, University of Wisconsin­Madison In spite of the numerous midwestern people, places, and events in Native American history, the indigenous past and present of the Midwest have not received the same measure of scholarly attention devoted to Indians in the American West.
