Although Kellogg was a controversial figure, alternately criticized and championed by her contemporaries, her work has endured in Oneida communitymemory and among scholars in Native American studies, though it has not been available to a broader audience. Ackley and Stanciu resurrect her legacy in this comprehensive volume, which includes Kellogg's writings, speeches, photographs, congressional testimonies, and coverage in national and international newspapers of the time. In an illuminating and richly detailed introduction, the editors show how Kellogg's prescient thinking makes her one of the most compelling Native intellectuals of her time.

Editors Kristina Ackley and Cristina Stanciu compiled a book that does not only serve as an eye-witness account of the dire years between 1901 and 1929, but also (re)establishes the legacy of an activist, poet, organizer, ethnographer, and, first and foremost, a community member devoting her life to her people.--The Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies
