World War II

Some 44,000 Native Americans served in the United States military during World War II.[1] For every one drafted, one and a half volunteered; American Indian participation in the war per capita exceeded any other group.[2] By 1940, a large fraction of American Indians lived off reservations; their experiences in the war mirrored the general population. Of special interest was the enormous impact the war had on Indians living on reservations, mostly in remote western areas. The war meant the draft for young men, and high paying war jobs in far-away cities for others. Most of those who left the reservations did not permanently return there after the war.[3]
