    The History Center, 302 East Berry Street

    Fort Wayne, Indiana

    Sunday, April 26, 2009 at 3:00 pm

    event details

    Jeffrey B. Webb will lecture on "Little Turtle's War: Dynamics of Indian Resistance and Accommodation in the Midwest." Webb will discuss how the life and career of Chief Little Turtle of the Miami offers some perspective on the conflicted nature of Indian responses to Anglo-American settlement in the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes Region. Little Turtle moved from resistance to accommodation in the period between 1790-1810, as social and political development in the region altered the balance of power between white settlers and Native American populations. Too often, Native Americans of this period are depicted as one-dimensional figures, presumed to be capable of only a limited range of responses to white encroachment. However, Little Turtle's career suggests that Native Americans used a wide range of creative strategies to negotiate the enveloping crisis that befell their communities at the onset of the nineteenth century. Webb's lecture will document this range of responses, and address the tendency to oversimplify relations on the advancing frontier of Anglo-Indian contact. Webb is professor of history at Huntington University. He received a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 2001 in the field of early American history. His research focuses on early American social thought and political culture. He has contributed to numerous encyclopedia and reference works, and presented work at professional meetings worldwide, most recently in Moscow, Beijing, and Bermuda. He has also published several books in the Complete Idiot's Guide series, as well as an introduction to the recent Barnes & Noble reprint of Winston Churchill's History of the English Speaking People. He is currently working on a book that recounts how William Penn's Holy Experiment in Pennsylvania served as a catalyst for the free society ideal in the 18th century Atlantic world.

    The Wanamaker Collection at Indiana University consists of over 8000 images of American Indians made between 1908 and 1923 by Joseph K. Dixon. These individuals represented over 150 tribes. The Wanamaker Collection can serve a variety of research interests. The primary ethnographic and historical value of the collection is as a record and reflection of American Indian life in the first decades of the 20th century. By the sheer quantity of photographs, the collection presents a wide view of Indian life, including several dimensions of culture change (documenting clothing decoration, dance styles, etc.), economic situation (relative wealth/poverty), and acculturation/participation in the non-Indian world, including the military. The images in this traveling exhibit will be a sampling of some of this vital visual history for all Americans.
