This is a thoroughly updated and expanded edition of Nancy Oestreich Lurie's seminal work on Native Americans living in the state. Wisconsin Indians introduces the history of Indian affairs from the founding of the United States to the beginning of the 21st century.

"Wisconsin continues to offer an unusual opportunity to understand the national Indian picture. Over the years the state has served as a kind of national laboratory for most of the government's policies and programs, while at the same time Wisconsin Indian tribes and organizations have exemplified and sometimes led in new developments to improve the lives of Indian people." -Nancy Oestreich Lurie, from the Preface
