Anton Treuer ("Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians...") talks with UTTC's Russ McDonald

Dr. Anton Treuer

How the book "Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians But Were Afraid to Ask" came about, and how it seems to be working.

Dr. Anton Treuer and Dr. Russ McDonald have a wide ranging discussion, starting with a traditional story told by the Ojibwe about a reconciliation with the Dakota, moving through how Dr. Treuer came to be working on helping understanding of Indians, including his book "Everything You Wanted to Know About Indian, But Were Afraid to Ask". That work and his book has led to him being asked to speak in many places. Dr. Treuer is on the faculty at Bemidji State, and Dr. McDonald is President of United Tribes Technical College, but this discussion is far from academic.
