The Taos Indians and the Battle for Blue Lake

R.C. Gordon-McCutchan

This book shows how the battle for Blue Lake became the focus of national debate under Richard Nixon's presidency. It is a paean to individual courage and initiative and focuses on one of the few bright spots in the conduct of established governments toward the native people of North America.


R.C. Gordon-McCutchan is a scholar in religious studies and a research associate at the School of American Research. For four years he was a tribal planner for the Taos Indians.
