Oklahoma’s Indian New Deal, by Jon S. Blackman

Jon Blackman has mined hearings and reports of the U.S. Congress and the Bureau of Indian Affairs to highlight the voices of Oklahoma Indians in the debates over the 1936 Oklahoma Indian Welfare Act, which extended to them the very benefits from which they had been exempted two years before in the Indian Reorganization Act. Thoroughly documented, wholly contextualized, and compellingly argued, this book is a must-read for students of Native American and Oklahoma history.”—W. David Baird, co-author of Oklahoma: A History  (from the back of the book)
