From Our Editors

Bob Blaisdell’s collection of 82 speeches given by Native Americans in encounters with European pioneers is unrivalled for both its depiction of Indian dignity in the face of white encroachment and the passionate logic in their arguments. Containing such rare and gifted discourse as that of a Muskoki chief’s refusal to parley with Spanish representatives “With Such a people I Want No Peace,” Red Cloud’s “The Great Spirit Made Us Both,” Red Jacket’s “We Like Our Religion and Do Not Want Another,” Great Speeches by Native Americans provides exhaustive notes and annotations so these noble sentiments can be remembered and understood by forthcoming generations.
