Paul Chaat Smith on Indigenous Politics


Paul Chaat Smith, author of Everything You Know about Indians Is Wrong, will appear on Indigenous Politics: From Native New England and Beyond, a radio program on WESU. For air time, click here.

The show is hosted by Dr. J. Kehaulani Kauanui, an associate professor of American Studies and Anthropology at Wesleyan University. For those who are unfamiliar with the show, here is its description:
Featuring news and interviews that address Native American politics as well as the struggles of indigenous peoples around the globe. Indigenous Politics will be airing encore presentations of its best episodes of seasons past the 1st and 3rd weeks of the month, while continuing to air fresh, new episodes on the 2nd and 4th weeks.


If you'd like more book info: Smith and editor Jason Weidemann have recorded a Q&A that discusses this 16-years-in-the-making book's content, how it came to be titled, and more. You can listen to the 18-minute video in its entirety (or in 1- to 3-minute clips) here. Here is a short video extracted from the full interview:
