From the Publisher:
In “An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States”, Dunbar-Ortiz challenges the founding myth of the United States and shows how policy against the Indigenous peoples was designed to take their properties and land. And as Dunbar-Ortiz reveals, this policy was praised in popular culture, through writers like James Fenimore Cooper and Walt Whitman, and in the highest offices of government and the military.
Spanning more than four hundred years, this classic bottom-up peoples’ history radically reframes U.S. history and breaks the silences that have haunted our national narrative.
