Resisting Oklahoma's Reign of Terror

The Society of Oklahoma Indians and the Fight for Native Rights, 1923–1928

«“Intelligent, readable, and infused with wry wit, Joshua Clough’s close study of the rise and fall of the Society of Oklahoma Indians gives readers a glimpse of the beating heart of Native Oklahoma in the mid-1920s. The third leg of a triple alliance forged to reform exploitative economic practices draining Indian estates, the SOI was short-lived and inchoate as a political organization. Yet Clough’s case study of the SOI, detailing the emergent collective voice of Indian protest, is compelling because of the powerful forces dividing and suppressing Oklahoma Indians during a very fractious era.”—Tanis C. Thorne, author of The World’s Richest Indian: The Scandal over Jackson Barnett’s Oil Fortune»

«“A prodigious amount of research yields a compelling account of the Society of Oklahoma Indians that focuses attention on the Indian Bureau, state-Indian conflicts, [and] demands for the federal government to ‘fix’ problems of guardianships, probate, and corruption. . . . Certain Indian cries in the 1920s about ‘chaos’ in the state resonate today.”—Blue Clark, author of Indian Tribes of Oklahoma: A Guide»
