Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This book contains a discussion on the persistence of the
Crow as a culturally distinct people in the face two centuries of rapid economic changes
and a series of government intervention programs that promoted assimilation. At the end of
that period comes the author's observation of a parade of Crow warriors with splendid
traditional costumes and uniforms. While recognizing the effects of external forces such as
government policies of privatization of land, relocation to reservations, boarding schools,
and limited welfare services, the author underscores the agency of the Crow people
themselves in shaping their course in history. The leadership role of successive Crow
chiefs is highlighted.
