“Our Cause Will Ultimately Triumph”:Profiles in American Indian Sovereignty, edited by Tim Alan Garrison, has just been published by Carolina Academic Press.
Here is the blurb:
“Our Cause Will Ultimately Triumph” examines the history of American Indian tribal sovereignty from a peoples’ perspective. An impressive group of historians and legal scholars offer up engaging biographies of the courageous leaders who helped establish and protect the autonomy of their people. Subjects range from early nineteenth-century leaders such as Alexander McGillivray (Creek) and John Ross (Cherokee), chiefs who helped bring their nations into the modern age of tribal sovereignty, to Ada Deer, Mary and Carrie Dann, and Elouise Cobell, women who worked for the benefit of all Indian people.
MSU ILPC alum Adrea Korthase wrote the chapter on Michigan tribal judge Michael Petoskey.
