Tribes of the Sioux Natio. Tribes of the Sioux Nation (Men-At-Arms Series, 344) Paperback – September 25, 2000. by Michael G Johnson (Author), Jonathan Smith (Illustrator). A collector of data, photographs and artefacts, he has presented many exhibitions, including annual exhibitions at the American Museum in Bath since 1964.

He has written a number of books on the subject in the Men-at-Arms series, including Men-at-Arms 344: Tribes of the Sioux Nation. In July 2000 he was presented with The Denali Press Award by the American Library Association, for his Macmillan Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes. He has contributed to exhibitions for the Arts Council of Great Britain and the American Museum in Bath, UK, and has visited more than 30 Indian communities and reservations.

The European fur trade in North America transformed the Iroquois world, and the tribes were soon forced to take sides in the struggles between English and French colonists. Thanks to the efforts of the remarkable Sir William Johnson in the Mohawk Valley, the Iroquois Nations were for the most part allies of the British crown; and Johnson’s loyal kinsman Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea) forced the Mohawks into Canadian exile during the American Revolution

He has written a number of books on the subject in the Men-at-Arms series, including Men-at-Arms 344: Tribes of the Sioux Nation.

Michael G. Johnson, Jonathan Smith (Illustrator). The horse culture of the tribes of the High Plains of North America lasted only some 170 years; yet in that time the sub-tribes of the Teton or Western Sioux people imprinted a vivid image on the world's imagination by their fearless but doomed fight to protect their hunting grounds from the inevitable spread of the white man.

The Great Sioux Nation is the traditional political structure of the Sioux in North America. The seven member communities are sometimes grouped into three regional/dialect sub-groups (Lakota, Western Dakota, and Eastern Dakota), but these mid-level identities are not politically institutionalized.

Michael Johnson, Jonathan Smith. The federated Iroquois tribes were absolutely central to the long struggle between the British colonists in eastern North America, and the French and their client tribes. They fought many exciting frontier campaigns, and were generally loyal allies of the British for 200 years from the late 16th century. They provided the redcoats and colonial militias with an invaluable scouting and raiding element, right up to the end of the American War of Independence in 1782, when the Mohawks trekked to new lands they were given in Canada by a grateful Crown.

This text outlines the history, social organization, religion and material culture of the Santee, Yankton and Teton Sioux; rare early photographs include portraits of many of the great war chiefs and warriors of the Plains Indian Wars, and eight detailed plates record details of Sioux traditional costume.
Comments to eBook Tribes of the Sioux Nation (Trade Editions)
Blackseeker
This book tackles the topic of the Sioux tribes for fought for, or more often against, the US in the mid-late 19th Century. It is a detailed source on the clothing and material culture of these peoples, and also provides a good foundation for the study of their culture. My reason for giving it only three stars is that it strays from the main thrust of the Osprey Men-at-Arms series. Easily half the figures in the plates are either women or unarmed males, and the text does not discuss the armament of fighting styles of these warrriors in detail. For someone like me who is seeking an Osprey book that is truly about the Amerindian warriors, there are better alternatives (notably Comanche 1800-1875).

Provides a good initial coverage of the subject. Can serve as the basis for further research or the basic knowledge for those not interested in in-depth research.

Very good book but not the best.

A QUITE COMPELLING BOOK, WITH A LOT OF FASINATEING PHOTOS....OF WARRIORS AND THE AVERAGE SIOUX, AND LIFE IN THE WEST.......I HAVE A FRIEND WHO IS SIOUX.........
Lo◘Ve
This book provides an excellent overview of what these warriors wore but little on tactics, strategy and the men themselves (backgrounds, etc.). Excellent reference for model and figurine builders but not for those interested in what was beneath the surface.

As a history teacher, I think it is essential to continue to tell the story to future generations of Americans. The many diverse tribes of Native Americans that covered North America all have vastly unique and incredible stories to learn from and share.
