Creating and Perpetuating Crow Oral History in the Classroom and Beyond (Web Resources)
Title: Creating and Perpetuating Crow Oral History in the Classroom and Beyond
Author: Russell, Angela
Author: Real Bird, Kennard
Abstract: The Yellowtail Dam Struggle and the Following Court Case Over Control of the Big Horn River -- Yellowtail Dam- Raphaelle interviewed four people regarding the development of Yellowtail Dam in the 1950s. All four felt that the deal reached with government was unacceptable and stole money and control of the reservation’s water from the Crow people. There is no River Crow perspective given in the interviews. That said, many discussed the factionalism of the period and that it had ramifications politically to this day on the reservation by normalizing this behavior. Big Horn River Case- These interviews were with individuals who worked in some capacity in the federal case that took control of the Big Horn River away from the Crows at its conclusion in the US Supreme Court. Some participated in protests, while others worked on legal briefings during the case. All interviewees discussed the effects of the case on the Crow people at the conclusion of each interview, which they obviously thought was not very positive.
