Warrior Nation: Anton Treuer Leaves Nothing Out in This Red Lake Ojibwe History
Anton Treuer’s newest work, Warrior Nation: A History of the Red Lake Ojibwe (Minnesota Historical Society Press, 2015), is a highly readable book tracing the history of Red Lake through its leaders. At the same time it reflects the history of all of Indian Country, despite its focus on the unique traits of this Native nation.
Treuer has devoted much of his career to uncovering the history of the Ojibwe people and preserving the Ojibwe language. He has had a dozen books published on those subjects.
His latest work, released this month, is intended to record the history of that nation and to contribute to the community conversation already underway to refresh the Red Lake Nation Constitution.
