More About The Militarization of Indian Country by Winona Laduke; Sean Aaron Cruz
 
 
 
Overview

When it became public that Osama bin Laden s death was announced with the phrase Geronimo, EKIA many Native people, including Geronimo s descendants, were insulted to discover that the name of a Native patriot was used as a code name for a world-class terrorist. Geronimo descendant Harlyn Geronimo explained, Obviously to equate Geronimo with Osama bin Laden is an unpardonable slander of Native America and its most famous leader. The Militarization of Indian Country illuminates the historical context of these negative stereotypes, the long political and economic relationship between the military and Native America, and the environmental and social consequences. This book addresses the impact that the U.S. military has had on Native peoples, lands, and cultures. From the use of Native names to the outright poisoning of Native peoples for testing, the U.S. military s exploitation of Indian country is unparalleled and ongoing.
