Handbook on Wisconsin Indians.
Erdman, Joyce M.
Due to the changing status of Indians in Wisconsin, the 1966 handbook provides a new study of their present day situation. Leadership from among the Indians has generated new interest in Indian conditions. Although their economic position has not improved significantly, their psychological climate is now characterized by optimism. Questions of the identity of the Indians and their aspirations are discussed. History and present conditions of reservation tribes are presented by individual tribes. Working relationships between Wisconsin Indians and state and Federal agencies are identified. Some Wisconsin organizations working with Indians are listed and some of the more important Wisconsin statutes pertaining to Indians are reproduced. (JH)
