City Indian makes a substantial contribution to emerging scholarship on Native Americans and cities by providing fresh insight that helps us understand the motivations, strategies, tensions, controversies, and triumphs that have characterized the work and lives of local and national Indian leaders.”—Nicolas G. Rosenthal, author of Reimagining Indian Country: Native American Migration and Identity in Twentieth-Century Los Angeles

City Indian covers an important and timely topic. This history of Indians in urban settings is currently under considerable and probing reconsideration. With this book Rosalyn LaPier and David Beck have shown how Native peoples in Chicago have determined their destinies.”—Brian Hosmer, H. G. Barnard Chair of Western American History and coeditor of Tribal Worlds: Critical Studies in the History of American Indian Nation Building
