Title

Cycles of Conquest: The Impact of Spain, Mexico, and the United States on the Indians of the Southwest, 1533-1960

Description

The first half of the book is a detailed examination, community by community, of first contact and its effects, starting in 1533. The native viewpoint—Tarahumara, Mayo, Yaqui, Upper and Lower Pima, Ópata, Seri, Pueblo, Navajo, Apache, Yuman—is presented wherever it can be reasonably ascertained. Spicer pushes through the Spanish, Mexican, and Anglo American period, in order, for each community, then repeats the process for the next group, until he has covered them all. The result is an encyclopedic discussion from which the reader quickly concludes that what Spicer doesn’t say about a tribe probably isn’t worth mentioning.
