Overview

From the author of How the World Moves–the classic collection of more than 500 years of Native American History

In a series of powerful and moving documents, anthropologist Peter Nabokov presents a history of Native American and white relations as seen though Indian eyes and told through Indian voices. Beginning with the Indians’ first encounters with European explorers, traders, missionaries, settlers, and soldiers to the challenges confronting Native American culture today, Native American Testimony spans five hundred years of interchange between the two peoples. Drawing from a wide range of sources–traditional narratives, Indian autobiographies, government transcripts, firsthand interviews, and more–Nabokov has assembled a remarkably rich and vivid collection, representing nothing less than an alternate history of North America.
