  • The Roots of Dependency, by Richard White, has excellent descriptions of American Indian political organizations and their flexibility.

    The classic book about the Natchez/Theloel, The Choctaw, Chickasaws and Natchez Indians, by H.B. Cushman and Angie Debo, is once again available with an introduction by Clara Sue Kidwell.

    For more about both the issue of Native American lands being settled by colonists as a reason for the American Revolution and the role of the Haudenosaune Confederacy in Benjamin Franklin’s ideas for the U.S. Constitution, I recommend Forgotten Founders: Benjamin Franklin, the Iroquois and the Rationale for the American Revolution, by Bruce E. Johansen.
