Excerpt from Our Debt to the Red Man: The French-Indians in the Development of the United States

HE mixed-blood Indian is so Widely regarded with disfavor, owing to the superficial criticism heaped upon him in certain quarters, that Mrs. Hough ton's book will make a strong appeal to all fair minded students of our aboriginal race problem. The too prevalent impression is doubtless based on the fact that, of late years, the natural resources of some Indian reservations have attracted speculative white adventurers, not a few of whom, taking Indian women to wife, have sadly neglected the children born of their union. But, as those of us know who are familiar at first hand with frontier conditions, any such sweeping judgment is unjust; for on every side we meet squawmen who, though uneducated in the ordinary sense, have proved their possession of character and force, and have devoted their best facul ties to the improvement of their families and the ad vancement of the tribes with which they are affiliated. In the volume before us, Mrs. Houghton has largely confined her observations to the Indians who trace their white blood to French sources. Her great store of data is the fruit of a painstaking search of several years through records ancient and modern, official and scientific, religious and literary. I am glad to note that, after showing how much we owe the mixed bloods for their contributions toward the upbuilding.
