QABC Reads - 'An Indigenous People's History of the US'

QABC Reads meets to discuss An Indigenous People's History of the US by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz. Join us for a lively discussion with fellow booklovers, moderated by QABC's own Kim. All are welcome!

Today in the United States, there are more than five hundred federally recognized Indigenous nations comprising nearly three million people, descendants of the fifteen million Native people who once inhabited this land. The centuries-long genocidal program of the US settler-colonial regimen has largely been omitted from history. Now, for the first time, acclaimed historian and activist Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz offers a history of the United States told from the perspective of Indigenous peoples and reveals how Native Americans, for centuries, actively resisted expansion of the US empire.

Spanning more than four hundred years, this classic bottom-up peoples’ history radically reframes US history and explodes the silences that have haunted our national narrative.
