A Century of Dishonor exposes how various people, from the military personnel to the government official, viewed Native Americans. Jackson outlines treaties between the federal government and various Native American tribes, treaties that were supposed to protect the rights of the Native American people and “ensure” them title to their lands, but were broken by the United States Government. She also tells of massacres, citing letters written by members of the United States military, detailing the horrendous acts committed against Native American women and children. When it was published in 1885, A Century of Dishonor created such a stir that the U.S. Department of the Interior appointed Jackson and Abbot Kinney to investigate the conditions of Native Americans in missions in California.
