Indians In Minnesota
By: Kathy Davis Graves and Elizabeth Ebbott
"The Minneapolis library system has long carried this valuable reference book in its collection. It captures twentieth to twenty-first-century Minnesota American Indian history with the authenticity of being there when events unfolded."-Laura Waterman Wittstock, elected trustee of the Minneapolis Library Board
In Minnesota, the legacy of the American Indian people is reflected in many ways. Twenty-seven of the state's counties have names of Indian origin. The cities of Wabasha, Red Wing, and Shakopee are named for important Mdewakanton Dakota tribal leaders. With more than fifty-four thousand Indians currently living in Minnesota, their culture and values are well represented throughout the state.
Characterized by a balanced perspective and a comprehensive approach, Indians In Minnesota provides a historical and contemporary account of Ojibwe and Dakota Indians in both reservation and urban settings. Compiled from hundreds of enlightening interviews with tribal members, as well as data from the 2000 Minnesota Census and federal and state reports, the fifth edition of this well-known work examines the significant changes and continuing needs of Indians in the twenty-first century. The only resource of its kind, Indians in Minnesota offers statistics as well as insight into American Indian spiritual, cultural, and economic views. It promotes a better understanding of Indian communities and is an invaluable tool for social change.
Kathy Davis Graves is the author of several research reports for the League of Women Voters, including a groundbreaking study on violence prevention.
Elizabeth Ebbott was the author of the fourth edition of Indians In Minnesota and contributed to the revision of the fifth edtion prior to her death in 1998.
