"Liberating Duluth" tells the story of Chief Jack White Eagle of the Lake Tranquille Band of Ojibwe, and his plans to take back Native land in the Upper Midwest. Jack, a retired Army Colonel and veteran of the Iraq War, has come home to manage a casino and lead his people in liberating the city of Duluth, Minnesota. In 1854, the United States offered the western end of Lake Superior — in exchange for a significant parcel of northern Minnesota — to the Lake Superior Chippewa. European settlers, however, ignored the treaty and broke up the land. Duluth was officially incorporated in 1878 — the result of ignoring a federal treaty with the Native Americans. The municipality went on to become, per capita, the richest city in North America for a period of time. Ultimately, the work illustrates the conflicting perspectives of national history: whose land is it, whose land was it, and who decides? The novel has a broad market with Native American rights advocates, and incorporates different perspectives during the three-day insurrection.
