Robert E. Walls


According to Chris Flook, instructor in the Department of Telecommunications at Ball State University, his book was written with several objectives in mind. First, he hopes to “instill in Hoosiers a deep interest in and respect for Native American history, culture, archaeology and understanding in Indiana,” (p. 149) and second, he wants to provide an introduction to the subject useful for schools in the state, because “a dearth of Native history exists in primary education” (p. 16). To complete this formidable assignment, he has managed to summarize the region’s last ten thousand years of indigenous history in 174 pages, from precontact life to the signing of treaties in the early nineteenth century, with a focus on the Lenape-Delaware on the White River.
