May we thank you on the air?*:

In the United States today, there are more than 500 federally recognized
indigenous communities and nations comprising nearly three million people. These
are the descendants of the 15 million people who once inhabited this land and
are the subject of the latest book by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz.

In An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States, Dunbar-Ortiz challenges the founding
myth of the United States and shows how policy against the indigenous peoples
was genocidal and imperialist—designed to crush the original inhabitants.
Spanning more than 300 years, this classic bottom-up history significantly
reframes how we view our past. Told from the viewpoint of the indigenous, it
reveals how Native Americans, for centuries, actively resisted expansion of the
U.S. empire.
