Land of the Indians - Indiana

Front Cover
Karl Keiper, 2010 - Indiana - 125 pages
"This book was written to summarize and to simplify a short period in the lives of Native Americans in the Land of the Indians. It illustrates the philosophy of expansionism and the subsequent abuse of an indigenous people. In the Land of the Indinas, white man's motive was to accumulate wealth through land acquisition and the exploitation of natural resources. Combined with this mentality was the notion that Native Americans did not own the land, had no innate rights and were less than human."--Page 4 of cover.
