The History of the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, 1600-2012 is an authoritative scholarly exploration of the struggles and triumphs of the Native Americans who were relegated by the federal government to a small portion of northeast Montana in the late 1880s. Written by five scholars of Native American studies, most of whom are native themselves, the narrative tracks the tribes from pre-contact with whites through the brutal early reservation period, two world wars, the turbulent 1960s, and into the twenty-first century. Drawn mostly from primary sources, including federal archives and private materials, The History of the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, 1600-2012, is a benchmark in the publication of tribal histories with a native point of view.
