Colonel Richard Irving Dodge, was a career U. Army Officer who served many years in the Western Plains and participated in a number of the conflicts with Americas indigenous wild Indians.

OUR WILD INDIANS Thirty Three Years Experience Among The Red Men Of The Great West is an acclaimed primary source about U. Army operations of the time and the lives of Native American warriors of the Plains. In OUR WILD INDIANS, Dodge explores all facets of the Indians daily life as he witnessed it and as it was personally explained to him by Indians he knew. His objective was to write a minute and careful study of the social or inner life of the wild Indian of the present day. He states in the Introduction.

The greater part of the past thirty-four years of my life has been spent on the frontier in more or less direct contact with Indians For many years past I have been most fortunately situated for such study, having been stationed directly among the wild tribes, whose characteristics have always been of most interest to me. Whenever I have found that my ideas differed from those of " an authority, " I have taken the case directly to the Indians themselves. My position as commanding officer "Big Chief" enabled me always to get a hearing and an answer on any subject; and my well-known friendship for the race caused the Indians to give me more frank confidence than a white man usually obtains. I have thus been enabled to get at facts; to correct the errors of my previous desultory writings, as well as errors of accepted Indian authorities.

Using his personal experiences and encounters with Indians, he creates a colorful portrait of Indian life on the Plains, everything from the Indians religion, rites and tribal government to courtship, cooking, art and hand-crafts, dancing, amusements and sports. However, as an Army officer, Dodge also witnessed the Indian at war. He furnishes firsthand knowledge of battles, raids and massacres. He describes in stark, unflinching detail the terrible fate of male captives taken by Indians, the agonizing tortures they were subjected to, the Indians brisk trade in white female captives and the special delight Indian women took in inflicting painful deaths on prisoners, even children.

And yet, Dodge is not judgmental. He proceeds with the understanding that this is the Indians way of life and that Indians should not be held accountable to civilized laws or standards. In fact, Dodge was a very liberal thinker for his times. In other parts of the book he deplores the American treaty system of dealing with the Indians and condemns the Indian agents appointed by the government to liaison with the tribes so forcefully that Dodges commanding officer, General William Tecumseh Sherman, felt it necessary to distance himself from Dodges views on these matters in his Preface to the book. Those differences notwithstanding, Sherman praises the scope, detail and accuracy of Dodges book in the same Preface.

Dear Colonel, I have now completed the first reading of the proof-sheets of your forthcoming book on " Our Wild Indians, " and congratulate you upon having accomplished a work of such general interest so well and so handsomely. The Indian of America has been for centuries the subject of study and of romance; alternately treated as an unmitigated savage, or as the dashing, bold hero fighting for his native land and his inherited privileges. You have had the experience of a third of a century in absolute contact with the various tribes of the Indians from the British line to Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, living with them, in peace and in war; and therefore your book is the record of your own personal observations, with dates, facts and figures, which constitute the very best testimony possible on the subject-matter treated of. I and nearly every Army officer, with less personal experience, can verify much that you describe, and in reading your chapters I have been struck by the various skill with which you have grouped the various branches of the subject discussed, making plain and logical deductions from the scattered observations of many army officers, who have had similar experience; I notice with great satisfaction that you draw the broad distinction between tribes like the Chippewas of the lakes; the Seminoles of Florida; the Kiowas, Comanches, etc. Of Texas; the Cheyennes, Arapahoes and Sioux of the Plains; the Utes and Apaches of the Mountains; the Navahoes and Pueblos of New Mexico; the Diggers and fish-eating tribes of the Pacific Coast.

There is as wide a difference in these types of the same race as between the Swedes, French, Spanish and Italian peoples. Of the American Indian as he now is.

You are hereby authorized to use my name as authority for its publication and circulation; and I invite all persons interested in the subject of the North American Indian to read this book carefully, to the end that public opinion may aid the national authorities to deal justly and liberally with the remnants of that race which preceded us on this continent. This book features a number of handsome illustrations ranging from full-page wood and steel engravings to color chromo-lithograph plates specially prepared by the Smithsonian Institution.

Regarding the color plates, the Publishers note. These chromo-lithograph plates are extremely accurate in drawing and coloring, no expense or pains having been spared to distinguish them in these respects for their fidelity to the objects they represent, Each group was first photographed to the proper size, thus insuring fullness of detail and perfect accuracy, and at the same time preserving the relative size of one object to another. The original objects and the photographs were then placed in the hands of a skilful artist who exercised the most painstaking care in painting the photograph of each article directly from the object itself. These painted photographs were then transferred to stone, from which the plates herewith presented were printed.

Each plate requires no less than fifteen printings to produce the various colors and tints absolutely necessary to a faithful representation of the objects shown, thus requiring ninety engraved stones to produce these six plates. In order to give you the most accurate description of this very important 122-year-old volume, I have provided some helpful details below.

First, a very detailed summary of the books contents, followed by a summary of the books many illustrations. Further down this page, you can even see some of these historic images for yourself.
