This book is required reading for everyone living in the United States because all of our fortunes began with the process of appropriating land and resources from American Indians. Many people living far away from Indian reservations express sympathy for the poverty and misery experienced by Native Americans, yet, Thomas Biolsi argues, the problems faced by Native Americans are the results of white privilege. In Deadliest Enemies, Biolsi connects the origins of racial tension between Indians and non-Indians on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota to federal laws, showing how the courts have created opposing political interests along race lines.
This powerful work sheds much-needed light on racial conflicts in South Dakota and in the rest of the United States, and holds white people accountable for the benefits of their racial privilege that come at the expense of Native Americans.
Deadliest Enemies: Law and the Making of Race Relations on and off Rosebud Reservation
A unique and valuable contribution to the literature. It is essential reading for historians, anthropologists, and other Native American studies scholars interested in federal Indian law and the effects of legal and racial discourses on indigenous communities. A considerable contribution to a sociological understanding of the role of law. Biolsi pays particular attention to the administrative means by which the OIA retained the power to design and implement tribal "self-government," as well as the power to control the flow of critical resources - rations, relief employment, credit - to the reservations.

He also shows how this imbalance of power between the tribes and the federal bureaucracy influenced politics on the reservations, and he argues that the crisis of authority faced by the Lakota tribal governments among their own would-be constituents - most dramatically demonstrated by the Wounded Knee occupation - is a direct result of their disempowerment by the United States.
