“This book goes even further than the previous edition toward rectifying decades of racially biased history and media commentary, which tended to portray Indians either as a vanished race of savages or a helpless minority stripped of their lands, cultures, and identities. Individually and collectively, these essays enable Native Americans to take the lead in telling their own stories of survival, adaption, resistance, and recovery.” − Andrew Fisher, Professor of History at the College of William & Mary.
No other book offers as wide a variety of views and stories about the historical and contemporary experience of Oregon Indians. The First Oregonians is the definitive volume for anyone interested in the fascinating story of Oregon’s first peoples.
