Anton Treuer is an Ojibwe scholar and cultural preservationist. In this book he addresses nearly 200 questions on a range of topics—questions that are thoughtful and outrageous, modern and historical, and always interesting.

A revised and updated edition of a modern classic offers answers to nearly 200 essential and thought-provoking questions about the Native people of North America.

What have you always wanted to know about Indians? Do you feel like you should already know the answers—or are concerned that your questions may be offensive? For more than a decade, Anton Treuer's clear, candid, and informative book has answered questions for tens of thousands of readers. This revised edition both revisits old questions from a new perspective and expands on topics that have become increasingly relevant over the past decade, including activism and tribal enrollment; truth and reconciliation efforts; gender roles and identities in Indigenous communities; the status of Alaskan Natives and Canadian First Nations; and much more. This book contains 20 B&W photos, notes, bibliography, index.
