Short Description: 
The author discusses her powerful new book with host Paul Roland
Host Paul Roland talks with radical Indigenous movement activist, feminist and scholar Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz about her powerful new book, An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States. The book reframes United States history from the perspective of the Indigenous peoples who were living here for millenia before the arrival of Europeans. For those who haven't yet made or attempted this perceptual and conceptual shift, her book  can serve as a valuable aid and guide. Now more than ever we need to radically re-examine the flawed and unjust foundations upon which this nation-state was built and continues to be maintained.
