Summary
Between the mid-nineteenth century and 1955, the U.S. Indian Health Service developed an elaborate, if inadequate, system of doctors, nurses, hopitals, and even medical research activities related to specific Indian health issues. This book focuses on the efforts of Indian Service doctors and nurses to deliver medical services to the Navajos. The result is thus an account of federal Indian policy, seen largely from the perspective of government employees. Wherever possible, the author has attempted to include the reaction and viewpoint of the Navajo people. The Navajo were far from silent and their reaction to medical issues appears in various ways -- most often through their refusal fto take advantage of government services, preferring to rely on traditional medicine
