Anton Treuer is a professor of Ojibwe at Bemidji State University and the author of numerous books. His fairness, education and cultural work set him on the path of service to the region, the nation and the world. In concrete answers to more than 120 questions, both thoughtful and outrageous, modern and historical, Anton Treuer gives a candid, fun and sometimes personal tour of what’s going on with Indians, anyway.
White/Indian relations are often characterized by guilt and anger. Everything you wanted to know about the Indians but were afraid to ask cuts through the emotion and lays the groundwork for true understanding and positive action.
