The Northern Plains Indian Wars, 1866-1890 – New!
6 sessions • 12 hours

The Northern Plains Indians were a nomadic culture resistant to domination by the government and military forces. Join us to learn about the Indian culture and spiritual beliefs. Presentation focuses on the history of Indian interaction with the United States Army, specifically Custer and the 7th Cavalry from Washita River to Wounded Knee, Red Cloud’s War and Custer’s defeat at Little Bighorn. Includes discussion about how the United States reservation policy caused these wars and suppressed Native American traditional culture.

Instructor: Colonial historian Roger G. Swartz received national acclaim for his two books covering the frontiers of the American Revolution. In 2004, he was chosen, along with 2 others, to be the educational coordinator for the 13-day bus tour sponsored by then National Elderhostel program for the 250th anniversary commemoration of the French & Indian War, 1754 – 1763.
