The Spokane Indians; Children of the Sun.
Ruby, Robert H.; Brown, John A.
The history of the Spokane Indian tribe is described in terms of cultural change, military resistance, and economic factors. The legendary view of the early Spokane people is reviewed, and the history of the tribe is followed through the era of the fur traders; the relocation on reservations; military campaigns; and the more recent attempts at acculturation. Negotiations and treaties between the Spokanes and the U.S. Government are reported. A bibliography is included. (PS)
