Chiefs and Challengers – New Second Edition (2014)
Indian Resistance and Cooperation in Southern California 1769-1906
Author: George Harwood Phillips
Long recognized as a pioneering work in the ethnohistory of California, Chiefs and Challengers, when it first appeared, overturned the stereotype of Indian victimhood and revealed a complex political landscape in which Native peoples interacted with one another as much as they did with non-Indians intruding into their territories. In this book George Harwood Phillips examines Indian-white interactions from both Indian and white perspectives. This new (just-released) edition describes the indigenous cultures of southern California and offers a detailed history of the repercussions of Euro-American colonization. NM $11, M $8, V $7 – or full-day single ticket.
