A must have resource for students of Oklahoma and American Indian history

Indian Tribes of Oklahoma, a guide, by Blue Clark, is from the Civilization of the American Indian series (volume 261) and is considered a tremendous asset as a reference guide and recommended as a must-have for students of Oklahoma and American Indian history.

Blue Clark has compiled a comprehensive and informative reading of histories of Oklahoma’s numerous tribes. Oklahoma is home to nearly 40 tribes and many Americans think of the state as “Indian Country.”

 

Solidly grounded in scholarship and Native oral tradition, the guide provides the unique story of each tribe, with entries offering complete descriptions. The book contains numerous images and suggested reading lists throughout the chapters.

 

About the author

Blue Clark holds the David Pendleton Chair in American Indian Studies and is Professor of History and Law at Oklahoma City University. An enrolled member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, he is the author of Lone Wolf v. Hitchcock: Treaty Rights and Indian Law at the End of the Nineteenth Century. 

 

 

What others are saying

Steve Gill’s review (June 2013), 405 magazine: Dr. Clark, an OCU professor and himself a member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, covers the alphabet from A to Yuchi and provides for each an overview of their name’s derivation, current location, economic status and population, as well as a brief accounting of their tribal history and notable figures like Comanche chief Quanah Parker, the artists of the Kiowa 5, Cherokee actor and entertainer Will Rogers and more. The result is simultaneously a reference book and a surprisingly compelling read, especially for those of us who share in the story of the “Land of the Red People.”
