“Conceptually, historians of native communities would benefit from thinking of Indian history as an aspect of American social history. As such, Indian history can be understood as the study of a particular group’s institutions and ideas about itself, as well as its relationships with other groups within the larger society. If this theme were pursued, Indian historians could address both the distinctiveness of the native experience and the relationship between native history and the development of national and regional cultures.” Fred Hoxie in An Assumption of Sovereignty: Social & Political Transformation Among the Florida Seminoles 1953 – 1979 by Harry A. Kersey Jr. Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 1996.
