Indian heroes and great . .has been added to your Cart. Having read one of Charles Eastman's biographies I was so impressed I started reading books he wrote about his life and the changes taking over Indian lives once whites started their "progress" across Indian lands.

Indian heroes and great . He is an excellent writer and was THERE when so many changes were forced upon his people (Eastman is a brilliant, college educated Native American). And he knew some of the great Indian chiefs. I was very pleased with this book and of course, saddened by what was forced upon them.

There were over sixty distinct tribes of Indians on this continent, each of which boasted its notable men. the names and deeds of some of these men will live in American history, yet in the true sense they are unknown, because misunderstood. I should like to present some of the greatest chiefs of modern times in the light of the native character and ideals, believing that the American people will gladly do them tardy justice.

Charles A. Eastman, a Santee Sioux, was four years old at the time of the 1862 Sioux Uprising in Minnesota. Separated from his father in the aftermath of the rebellion, he spent eleven years with relatives in Canada before being reunited with him and taken to Dakota Territory. Deeply influenced by his father who had been converted to Christianity, he likewise followed "the white man's trail," attending Dartmouth and, in 1890, becoming a government physician at the Pine Ridge Agency. His fame today rests on the eleven books he wrote, in which he attempted to correct misapprehensions whites had about Indians and to bring the two races closer together. First published in 1918, Indian Heroes and Great Chieftains contains biographical vignettes of fifteen great Indian leaders, most of them Sioux and some of them, like Red Cloud and Rain-in-the-Face, friends and acquaintances of Eastman. He pays tribute to Little Wolf, the Cheyenne chief whom he knew well, and describes the noble career of Chief Joseph of the Nez Perces, who received his assistance in drawing up a document of grievances presented to the government in 1897. In finely honed prose Eastman cuts to the essence of his subjects, including Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Spotted Tail, Little Crow, Gall, Two Strike, American Horse, Dull Knife, Roman Nose. Hole-in-the-Day, and Tamahay (who counseled against the Sioux Uprising in Minnesota).

This was a great book. Having grown up in Oklahoma, where most of my friends are Native American, or at least have partial Native heritage (myself included), I have heard and read many stories of how the tribes were treated, as well as how they lived. I didn't get too many of the heroes though. We've seen movies that villainize some of the chiefs, I didn't get the full picture from those stories and didn't see that the natives weren't just sitting around thinking about ways to attack white settlements. They just wanted to live, and they didn't want to be invaded; and they were frequently lied to.
I enjoyed reading each story. In some cases, a deal would be made with one white representative, and it was a genuine deal in good faith, but later, some other politician (or general) would just decide to change the deal for their own benefit. It was good to read that the villains weren't always villains and the good guys weren't always the good guys.
Mostly it was good to read the stories of people that would have otherwise been forgotten.

“Indian Heroes and Great Chieftains” by Charles A. Eastman

This is a very good collection of brief but very interesting “bios” of some of the more notable Native American leaders and heroes from the 19th century. Its’ brevity necessarily omits most of the Indian and Indian/White politics swirling around each figure but Eastman still does a good (albeit somewhat “vanilla”) job with his characterizations.

Eastman, of Sioux lineage, was probably the premier scholar of the early voices of what might be termed “the Modern Indian”. He enjoyed the respect and admiration (and gratitude) of many, many Native Americans and Whites alike. He did an incredible amount of beneficial work with Native American youth – starting many Scout troops and YMCA chapters – always pushing education for Indian children and adults both. His work, directly and indirectly, helped rescue Native American culture from oblivion – a priceless gift to all Americans.
  • The Rollers of Vildar
A thorough and authoritative work describing in detail some of the main characters who participated and were the victims in the closing stages of the greatest land theft in modern history. The theft of the ancestral lands of the American Indian is a heart wrenching story of a great civilisation, it's natural people and its land usurped by technology and corruption of the incoming white settler nation. The characters in this book are forever etched in our collective memory; a memory of the beautiful, the brave, the proud — the true human beings.

This book was most interesting to me in that I've been interested in our country's history, especially the settling of the west, since childhood. I was familiar with some of these names but there were some that I was not aware of so I was able to relate them to much of what I already learned. I found Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull of special interest because I visited the Little Big Horn battle ground several times and probably walked in their footsteps.

Love this book. Homeschooling our 8 yo granddaughter. Great for 3rd grade Native American studies requirement.

My grandmother told me many years ago that her grandfather had married a Native American. So I have always believed that I was part Native American. Therefore I read this with an eye to maybe understanding a little more about myself. I learned so much! No, I'm not a great Chief or Warrior, but see some of my characteristics which have always puzzled me in a new light. I look forward to reading more about these people.
I was happily surprised by the content of this book. What a history lesson! So respectful and interesting. This was a real treat.
