about

The impact of World War II on Indian affairs was more profound and lasting than that of any other event or policy--including Roosevelt's Indian New Deal and efforts to terminate federal responsibility for tribes under Eisenhower. Focusing on the period from 1941 to 1947, Alison R. Bernstein explains why termination and tribal self-determination were logical results of the Indians' World War II experiences in battle and on the home front.

From Our Editors

During the Second World War, American Indians contributed to the war effort both at home and abroad. Shamefully, but not surprisingly, the country’s indigenous peoples didn’t get enough appreciation for their efforts, which led to a move toward self-determination, among other things. Alison R. Bernstein looks at the aboriginal experience during the 1940s in American Indians and World War II.
