In November, New Mexican and Kansan voters elected Debra Haaland (Laguna Pueblo) and Sharice Davids (Ho-Chunk) to Congress, while voters in Minnesota elected Peggy Flanagan (Ojibwe) their lieutenant governor. Such achievements represent more than added texture to the mosaic of modern America. They underscore the rising power of American Indians over the past two generations. During an era known as Self-Determination, Indian tribes and their citizens have changed not only their particular nations but also the larger nation around them.

Forsyth (literature, U. of Essex) examines accounts of the massacre by both Indian and white sources. They include Oscar Howe's late-1950s painting Wounded Knee Massacre , immediate responses by friends and neighbors, memory and representation by survivors and collectors, the circular official record by officers and gentlemen, autobiographies and amanuenses, fictional narratives by novelists and moviemakers, and museums and monuments by American Indian activists. She highlights the motivation and context of each representation. The volume is high quality. The text is double spaced. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
