Debo, Angie; "The Rise &and Fall of the Choctaw Republic" 2nd Edition
ISBN: 0-8061-1247-6; Binding: Paper; Pages: 328p; pref, biblio; Illustrations: illus, maps; Published: 1975; 2002 Price: $19.95; (Norman, OK. 1st Ed. 1934, Norman, OK : University of Oklahoma Press, 2nd 1970. This is Vol. 6 in "The Civilization of the American Indian" series, LC 73-108802)
Here is the story of the Choctaws, a proud and gifted tribe among the Five Civilized Tribes of Indians. It is the record of a people whose forced migration from their ancestral homes in the South to what is now Oklahoma and whose subsequent efforts from the Civil War to the close of the century to maintain an autonomous government and institutions form a distinctive and arresting chapter in the history of the West. While the political, social, and economic customs of the Choctaws were closely circumscribed, the thread of Choctaw history was at all times closely interwoven witht he larger fabric of American history as a whole. Choctaw law was a curious combination of ancient tribal custom and Anglo-American legal practice; Choctaw churches and schools were copied almost wholly from the white manís society; and Choctaw economic institutions represented an attempt to adjust the customs of tribal control of the land to the white system of individual ownership.

This book is an in-depth historical survey of the Indians of the United States, including the Eskimos and Aleuts of Alaska. It isolates and analyzes the problems that have beset these peoples since their first contacts with Europeans. Only in the light of this knowledge, the author states, can an intelligent Indian policy be formulated.
"The best available survey of relations between the European intruders and the Native American from discovery to the present day." - Choice
"Angie Debo is no stranger to Indian scholarship. For over thirty years she has devoted herself - professionally and personally - to native Americans and has emerged as an Indian historian with few peers and no masters. Now she has attempted a labor of love, a synthesis of the Indians as a factor in United States history. And she has succeeded admirably . . .. It is pure Debo pulling together a myriad persons, policies, events, and tribes into a fine bright thread that weaves itself through four-hundred-plus years of history. Here indeed, is the best one-volume history of the American Indians . . .. A work that will be studied and discussed as long as persons remain interested in American Indians." - The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science

"The Texas Cherokees, a people between two fires, 1819-1840"

ISBN: 0-8061-2720-1; Binding: Paper ; Pages: 192p; Illustrations: 5 b&w illus, 4 maps; Published: 1995; 2002 Price: $17.95 ; 1st ed. (Norman, OK : University of Oklahoma Press, 1995. Series: The Civilization of the American Indian series, v. 203.
In 1819 to 1820 several hundred Cherokees-led by Duwali, a chief from Tennessee-settled along the Sabine, Neches, and Angelina rivers in east Texas. Welcomed by Mexico as a buffer to U.S. settlement, Duwaliís people had separated from other Western Cherokees in an effort to retain the tribeís traditional lifeways. As Dianne Everett details in The Texas Cherokees, they found themselves "caught between two fires" in many respects: between the Cherokee ideal of harmony and the reality of factionalism, between white settlers pushing westward and western Indians resisting incursions, and between traditional ways and the practical necessity of accommodating to whites.

"The publication of George Washington Graysonís autobiography brings to light perhaps the only existing written account of a nineteenth-century Indian leader. Born in 1843 near present-day Eufaula, Oklahoma, Grayson served as a Confederate army officer during the Civil War and in various offices of the Creek Nation from 1870 until his death in 1920. . . .Baird has produced an excellent edition that makes Graysonís autobiography more accessible and that should bring it the attention it deserves."-Montana: Magazine of Western History.
"This is an interesting and entertaining work. Grayson provides an intimate and comprehensive view of Creek history from the inside, and Baird has made a significant contribution to Creek studies by making the autobiography widely available."-Journal of Southern History.

Mankiller, Wilma "Mankiller: A Chief and Her People": As former principal chief, Wilma Mankiller's biography weaves her personal journey with that of the Cherokee people. After several brushes with death, Mankiller attributes a deep spiritual awareness with the impact of her leadership. This book is more than one woman's extraordinary story, it is a testament to the spirit of the Cherokee people. "We are a revitalized tribe," said Mankiller,"After every major upheaval, we have been able to gather together as a people and rebuild a community and a government. Individually and collectively, Cherokee people possess an extraordinary ability to face down adversity and continue moving forward. We are able to do that because our culture, though certainly diminished, has sustained us since time immemorial. This Cherokee culture is a well-kept secret."

A confederate soldier, pioneer merchant, rancher, newspaper publisher, and town builder, George Washington Grayson also served for six decades as a leader of the Creek Nation. His life paralleled the most tumultuous events in Creek Indian and Oklahoma history, from the aftermath of the Trail of Tears through World War I.
As a diplomat representing the Creek people, Grayson worked to shape Indian policy. As a cultural broker, he explained its ramifications to his people. A self-described progressive who advocated English education, constitutional government, and economic development, Grayson also was an Indian nationalist who appreciated traditional values. When the Creeks faced allotment and loss of sovereignty, Grayson sought ways to accommodate change without sacrificing Indian identity.
Mary Jane Warde bases her portrait of Grayson on a wealth of primary and secondary sources, including the extensive writings of Grayson himself.

Wilkins, Thurman; "Cherokee Tragedy":

"This deeply-researched, fascinating portrayal of the Ridges provides a much-needed broadening of our perspective of perhaps the greatest and saddest epic of Indian-White history in the United States. It is indispensable to the scholar, but also enthralling and eye-opening to the general reader. A notable work, indeed."-Alvin M. Josephy, Jr.
"This superbly researched and sympathetically written study is a classic in the field of Cherokee history. Wilkins has not only produced a moving biography of the influential Ridge-Watie family in the years 1790 - 1840, but he has also given us many new insights into white Americaís betrayal of the native Americans from whom it stole a continent. This story of the Ridge familyís part in that struggle captures the heart of the tragic conflict. Read it and weep."-William G. McLoughlin
"Thurman Wilkins gives a remarkable balanced account of Cherokee removal. It is an engrossing story that challenges old stereotypes."-Francis Paul Prucha, S.J.
"Thurman Wilkinsí sympathetic account of the leaders of the faction that signed the Cherokee removal treaty is meticulously researched and eminently readable. Scholars and general readers who are interested in native Americans will welcome this revised edition of Cherokee Tragedy."-Theda Perdue.
"Through the careful use of primary sources, Wilkins documents the rise of the Cherokee Nation, as well as its rapid decline into a self-described morally degenerated and fragmented conglomerate. In relating this great tragedy, Wilkins is at his literary and historiographical best."-Masterkey.

The report to Congress, reproduced in this and subsequent volumes, summarized the findings in the form of pages of testimony given by applicants and witnesses. Microfilms of Guion Miller's "Report" are available at National Archives in Washington, D.C. and the Federal Records Center in Fort Worth, Texas. The compiler has transcribed each of the 12 rolls of film involved, Record Group M685, and has abstracted the data for entries as follows: "applicant's name, residence, decision and reason; miscellaneous testimony and exception cases where applicable, roll information for those admitted." Mr. Miller stated in his report of May 28, 1909 that 45,847 separate applications had been filed, representing a total of about 90,000 individual claims, most claimants residing west of the Mississippi River. This composes quite a large amount of material that the compiler has undertaken to transcribe. Younkin, C. George; Searching For American Indian Genealogy: Stripes, Vol. XVII (Dec. 1977) Younkin, C.
