In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

The Militarization of Indian Country Makwa Enewed is a sub-imprint of the American Indian Studies Series, at Michigan State University Press. Gordon Henry, Series Editor Makwa Enewed stands dedicated to books that encompass the varied views and perspectives of people working in American Indian communities. In that light, books published under the Makwa Enewed imprint rely less on formal academic critique, argument, methodology, and research conventions and more on experientially grounded views and perspectives on issues, activities and developments in Indian Country. While work published in Makwa Enewed may resound with certain personal, speculative, conversational, political and/or social concerns of individuals and groups of individual American Indian people, in a larger sense such concerns and their delivery reflects the import, strength, uniqueness, and potential viability of the imprint. The imprint will gather its strength from the voices of tribal leaders, community activists, and socially engaged Native people. Thus, each publication under the Makwa Enewed imprint will call forth from tribally based people and places, reminding readers of the varied beliefs and pressing interests of American Indian tribal people and communities. makwa enewed Winona LaDuke with Sean Aaron Cruz The Militarization of Indian Country Makwa Enewed East Lansing Copyright © 2012 by Winona LaDuke ∞ The paper used in this publication meets the minimum requirements of ANSI/NISO Z39.48-1992 (R 1997) (Permanence of Paper).
