Note: Both the Jablow's Indians of Illinois and Indiana and Voeglin and Jones' Indians of Western Illinois
and Southern Wisconsin are from the Garland Ethnohistory series. These books were orginally written to determine the
lands generally occupied by specific Native American tribal groups in the early historic period. This was done to provide a
framework of reference for suits brought by Native peoples against the U.S. Government which had used them so poorly.
As might be suspected, the Native people gained little from the suits, but these ethnohistories are invaluable works from
acknowledged expert scholars that bring to life people whom for
the most part have been forgotten. See if these Garland
books are available at your local library or through
interlibrary loan. The books are not fancy. The type font
looks like something off of an old IBM Selectirc
and the lines are double-spaced. But there is valuable
information here for those interested in Native American ethnohistory.
