In this wonderful guide to the many Native American tribes that are or have been in Oklahoma, Blue Clark ties the past and present of many peoples, among them the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, Cheyenne, Otoe-Missouria, Cherokee, Choctaw, and Apache. The Nez Perce are covered here, although this particular tribe was returned to Idaho and their reservation given to the Tonkawa. Other tribes include the Kickapoo, Pawnee, Ponca, Euchee, Delaware, Iowa, Sac, Fox, and several others. For the novice embarking upon the study of American Indians in Oklahoma, this is the guide to start with.

Clark’s entries for each of the federally and non-federally recognized tribes or nations in Oklahoma include the meaning of the name of the tribe, its present location, the number of its members and its government, as well as how the tribe makes money in modern times - often through casinos, smoke shops, and other means. In addition to these statistics, he provides summarized but quite readable and informative histories of the tribes, and each entry is followed by a short bibliography for further reading. Some entries feature black-and-white illustrations, and there are maps and an index.

Blue Clark is the David Pendleton Chair in American Indian Studies and is Professor of History and Law at Oklahoma City University who is an enrolled member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. He is the author of Lone Wolf v. Hitchcock: Treaty Rights and Indian Law at the End of the Nineteenth Century (1994).
