After Words

After Words: Anton Treuer, "Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians but Were Afraid to Ask," hosted by Jacqueline Pata, National Congress of American Indians

About the Program

This expert of Ojibwe history and language answers more than one hundred questions about Native Americans, many of which he's been asked while giving public lecturers in Minnesota.  The questions range from thoughtful and funny to what many may consider offensive, but Mr. Treuer answers with frankness, and often from a personal perspective.  He discusses the questions and answers with the Executive Director of the National Congress of American Indians, Jacqueline Pata.
