Apsaalooka The Crow Nation Then and NowApsaalooka
The Crow Nation Then and Now
by Helene Smith and Lloyd George Mickey Old Coyote

Collector's book, nearly out of print: presented to all members of Congress.

First comprehensive and up-to-date history of Crow Tribe. This book, through the experiences of the Crow Nation, related to all native tribes as it reflects present-day governmental policies still adversely affecting American Indians. An eye opener into what is going on in Indian Country today. Anthological in parts, sprinkled with quotes from many others expressing the suppression, abuse and corruption of the Bureau of Indian Affairs towards American Indians for nearly 200 years, starting out in the War Department. In 1881 Helen Hunt Jackson presented her book, A Century of Dishonor, to all the members of Congress in regard to governmental policies toward indigenous peoples. In 1992-1993 the limited edition of Apsaalooka, the Crow Nation Then and Now, was presented as complimentary copies to all members of Congress, the President and Vice-president, etc. These two books represent 200 years of dishonor. As a result, the authors of Apsaalooka... are now being sought for help in regard to problems of Indians caused by the dominant society. Education and communication, a key to solving problems, is what this book is all about.
