Abstract

In 1928, the librarian and scholar Lawrence C. Wroth wrote of how he wished he had been poured “the strong wine” of Indian Treaties as a student instead of the “invincible mediocrity” of the duller literature on the colonial period. This chapter should be seen as part of a more liberal pouring of such “strong wine” at a point in intellectual life when indigenous North American treaty texts and what surrounds them is beginning to assert a more appropriately central place within debates on literature, history, law, political science, and indigenous studies.
