In almost every other part of the nation, Indians were treated with disgust and disdain by the whites of their region. South Dakota, the beautiful land of Kevin Costner’s Dances With Wolves, was littered with signs reading: No Dogs And No Indians Allowed. Oklahoma systematically oppressed Indians while on festive occasions its politicians laid claim to Cherokee, Chicksaw, and Choctaw bloodlines from a mythical princess who had saved a wandering white man who startlingly resembled Gary Cooper.
