Published for the first time, these early writings of renowned anthropologist Frances Leon Quintana boldly detail the exploitation and the gradual present day recovery of the Southern Utes Indians following the American conquest of their ancestral lands in 1877 and their subsequent treatment at the hands of the U.S. federal government. Ordeal of Change includes the historical trajectory of the tribe's development and subsequent adaptations from 1877-1926, a statistical survey demonstrating the impact of Indian relocation and the redistribution of their tribal lands on the demographic and economic status of the tribe, and an thoughtful analysis of this data. The fourth and final section, an afterword by Professor Richard O. Clemmer, brings these developments up to date from 1926 to the present. This book-a chronicle of and tribute to the determination of a nation resolved to survive the hardships that have shaped them-is a must for scholars of Native American history and development and for those interested in the restoration of justice to native peoples.
