Excerpt from Maria Candelaria: An Historic Drama From American Aboriginal Life
OF the many revolts by which the Red Men of Amer ica have endeavored to throw off the yolk of their white conquerors, none has impressed me as possessing more striking situations than that of the T... zentals, in 1712. In it, among other features, one witnesses the extraordinary powers which women not unfrequently exerted among American tribes. In the person of its maiden heroine, the designer and leader of the revolt, we have a veritable aboriginal Joan of Arc, though one doomed to witness her cherished plans end in disaster.
