EPUB Lewis and Clark Among the Indians

Lewis and Clark Among the Indians Lewis & Clark ExpeditionParticularly valuable for Ronda's inclusion of pertinent background information about the various tribes and for his ethnological analysis An appendix also places the Sacaga Rereading not just reviewing Ronda after a lapse of two decades I am impressed than ever by his pathbreaking work Two things in particular stand outFirst parcel to his attempt to see the Indian side of transactions involving the Corps of Discovery Ronda sorts out the geopolitics of the Missouri as they stood in 1804 06 He redeems the Brulé from the slanders of writers such as De Voto explains the hard place in which the Arikara found themselves situates the Mandan and Hidatsa in a web of relationships on the northern plains and overall assesses the diplomatic initiatives of Lewis and Clark as futileSecond before other Western historians were thinking about it and without using the word Ronda acts upon the doctrine of agency in historical writing He does not succeed entirely in shifting the point of view from that of the captains to that of the Indians because he still is working from the white guy sources but he does so with a critical rereading of such sources Thus Indian actions that seemed mystifying or exasperating to the Corps of Discovery and to the corps of historians who followed them begin to make perfect sense Wonderful how that works
