Dr. Thomas A. Bland, Critic of Forced Assimilation.
Cowger, Thomas W.
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v16 n4 p77-97 1992
Journal editor and founder of the National Indian Defence Association, Thomas Bland was a unique, persistent voice crying for retention of Indian rights in the 1880s. Although accepting the goal of Indian assimilation, Bland insisted it must be gradual and voluntary, and vigorously opposed coercive allotment of reservation land. (SV)
