Reflections on American Indian History: Honoring the Past, Building a Future contains five essays originally presented at the Wilma Mankiller Symposium on American Indian History in 2005. The theme of Native American history in the twentieth century attracted a diverse collection of papers presented by Colin Calloway, R. David Edmunds, Laurence M. Hauptman, Peter Iverson, and Brenda Child. The most important essays are Hauptman's paper about Oneidas of Wisconsin war stories, and Child's paper about the Ojibwe healing dance known as the Jingle Dress Dance. Wilma Mankiller provides the introductory essay. The book contains a helpful index and bibliography. This highly readable collection will be of interest to senior secondary students as well as Native American Studies scholars.
