I consider it an excellent historical learning technique to repeat important concepts in different ways and using varied examples that allow the learner/reader to understand, in this case, tribal cultural capital/principles, and the author surely does that. He also makes important critical distinctions; for example, he notes that the U.S. Indian Department was frustrated by what it saw as continuous upheaval in the mill, seeing it as "the result of the Menominee having power without responsibility. But the reverse can be argued. The federal government failed because it had the power to make decisions but did not have to pay the price or suffer the consequence of those decisions. After all, the tribe paid the expenses of federal services from its own funds" (132) (!). Of course, the author covers the fairly well known termination and restoration periods of the Menominees. The efforts of the federal government and those interested in Menominee land for themselves during and prior to these periods are difficult to read about; yet, as the author says, "the tribe now governs itself more freely of BIA control than do most
