About this item

Connole, a Native American historian, examines how American Indian policy shifted in reaction to changing ideas about the frontier, as the relationship between American Indians and the US government shifted during the Civil War from a detached policy to a deliberate plan to take away their sovereignty. After the Five Nations (Choctaw, Chickasaw, Cherokee, Creek, and Seminole) were removed from their ancestral homes into Oklahoma before the Civil War, they were seen as conquered foes after the war and were accused of violating their treaties with the US or committing crimes against the American settlers who were invading their homes, allowing the US to claim its right of occupancy over their land. The US government’s Reconstruction policy focused on the subjugation of the Five Nations under US law, taking away their sovereignty over their land, and opening up the territory to white settlers.
