Dammed Indians Revisited: The Continuing History of the Pick-Sloan Plan and the Missouri River Sioux
By: Michael L. Lawson

More than twenty-five years after the publication of Dammed Indians, Michael Lawson revisits his classic work. The 1944 Pick-Sloan Plan created a wealth of economic opportunities for the states lying along the Missouri River.

Dammed Indians Revisited examines how the work of the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation affected the communities along the river, demonstrating the unequal relationship between the tribes and the federal government. Lawson has unearthed new information, revising his original work to bring the story up to date.
