                  Chippewa Treaty Rights                 B89081867
"The Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters performs an
im-
portant service in making available this work, which is the first product
of an ongoing research project on Wisconsin Chippewa treaty rights being
conducted by Graduate School Dean and Professor of American Indian
History Ronald N. Satz and a group of students at the University of
Wisconsin-Eau Claire. This is an important study that shows the signifi-
cance of historical research in the service of public policy. . . . A reading
of the historical analysis and documents in this book should help all of
us
understand and appreciate Wisconsin Indian treaty rights. Understanding
does not come easily, but it is essential to preservation of the rights of
all
of us-Indian and non-Indian alike."
-Rennard Strickland, projessor of law and director of the American Indian
Law and Policy Center at the University of Oklahoma, and editor-in-chief
of the highly acclaimed 1982 revision of The Handbook of Federal Indian
Law.
This study is "a remarkable piece of work. A major contribution!"
-Richard St. Germaine, professor of education and Chippewa history at
the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and former Lac Courte Oreilles
Tribal Chair.
"This is a Cracker-Jacks, a first class contribution to the subject
[of Chip-
pewa treaty rights] which will knock the pins from beneath the opponents'
arguments as well as provide the public understanding of the treaty question."
-David R. Wrone, professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-
Stevens Point and co-editor of Who's the Savage?
