Reviews

"Fixico utilizes indigenous methodologies and, what Lumbee scholar Malinda Maynor Lowery calls, 'autoethnography' to reinterpret twentieth-century American Indian history."--American Historical Review
"Despite lingering problems on Indian reservations, many tribes are showing strength and resilience as they rebuild their homelands and cultures. Author Donald Fixico is not only a scholar of the past but a visionary of the future."--Southwest Books of the Year

"Indian Resilience and Rebuilding is a significant contribution to the small but growing literature on the reconstruction of Native Nations in the 20th century. Most of these focus narrowly on a specific Nation or on a single aspect of the rebuilding process such as education or economics. This study, however, provides a broader context within which to explore the process and outcome, and this wider view takes the reader across Indian Country." --Kathleen P. Chamberlain, author of Victorio: Apache Warrior and Chief
"Fixico's book
is a welcome addition to all Native Studies core curriculum as a perfect introduction to the past 200 years of history of the tribes of the United States. Students of history, Native history, and political science will enjoy the scholarship as they learn of this history from the perspective of a Native historian at the height of his scholarship."--Oregon Historical Quarterly

"Several books on American Indian politics and activism have been published in recent years, but Fixico offers a wide-ranging narrative of post-Civil War American Indian history told from the analytical angle of an 'Indigenous paradigm.' It both synthesizes new scholarship and offers new coverage of important American Indian contexts such as relocation and repatriation, bringing the story of adaptation and cultural survival into the 21st century." --Paul C. Rosier, author of Serving Their Country: American Indian Politics and Patriotism in the Twentieth Century
