Death Records of the Yakama, 1888-1964
Clifford E. Trafzer and Robert R. McCoy
Despite a recent resurgence in studies of death and disease in native peoples of the Western Hemisphere, little work has been done on death and disease in Native Americans during the reservation period of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Forgotten Voices: Death Records of the Yakama, 1888-1964
begins a discussion of the health of the people on the Yakama Reservation in Washington using statistical data. This is the first detailed work that focuses on the causes of death on American Indian reservations. It contains an extensive introduction to Yakama history and lifestyle, and tables that present statistical information on the major causes of death. Each chapter highlights a different cause of death on the Yakama Reservation, including
• Heart Disease
• Gastrointestinal Problems
• Birth Complications
• Old Age
is an invaluable resource for students and scholars that encourages further research in the field of Native American history.
