It is often assumed that Native Americans live in two distinct worlds: one Indian and the other white. In this collection of biographical studies of eight American Indians, though, we see that in fact they live in just one world of great complexity that has challenged, sustained, and sometimes destroyed them. All the leaders profiled here struck different balances between their Indian identity and their work within the dominant white culture, and history and biography are combined to delineate that process. This book is an important contribution to American Indian studies and includes for the first time biographies of Native American women. These life stories of Maris Bryant Pierce, Nampeyo, Dr. Susan LaFlesche Picotte, Henry Chee Dodge, Charles Curtis, Luther Standing Bear, Minnie Kellogg, and Peterson Zah provide insights into defining cultural identity and success.
