Date of this Version
Two thirds of the total Indian population live in cities today. The collective experiences of third and fourth generation urban Indians living in Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and other urban areas is the focus of a new book that examines the lives of those who first came to be city dwellers during the government's push for relocation. Professor and author Don Fixico, director of the Indigenous Nations Studies Program at the University of Kansas joins us to discuss his book.
