Review
Cook-Lynn (Native American studies, emerita, Eastern Washington Univ.; Anti-Indianism in Modern America ), a member of the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe, has produced a series of interrelated essays that call for a complete reframing of both the discipline of Native American studies and the way that native peoples are portrayed in U.S. history. She argues that in their zeal to get the Native American experience into the history books, native scholars have settled for the inclusion of only those Native Americans who helped Europeans and their descendents commit genocide on native peoples. These "accommodationists" were also complicit in the theft of all the land in the Americas. She pins the blame for the misrepresentation of the Native American experience on the field of Native American studies, which she argues has had to conform to the dictates of academia. To present the history of Native America accurately and to help native peoples chart their own future, Cook-Lynn urges her fellow scholars to create their own pedagogy and methodology. This passionately argued polemic should be read alongside Peter Nabokov's A Forest of Time: American Indian Ways of History . Both works are recommended for academic libraries supporting programs in Native American studies or U.S. history.—John Burch, Campbellsville Univ. Lib., KY --John Burch (Reviewed May 1, 2007) (Library Journal, vol 132, issue 8, p89)
