Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Everything You Know About Indians Is Wrong is both the title of Paul Chaat Smith's book of essays, and very much what he believes. He's a curator at the National Museum of the American Indian of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, and he tells Steve Paulson that unlike other people Indians aren't allowed to change. Stand-up comedian Howie Miller agrees, but he's using his sense of humor to do something about it. He tells Anne Strainchamps how.

Next, Leslie Marmon Silko is an artist in the American Southwest, where she writes and paints to help understanding of her native Laguna Pueblo tribe. She's also a member of what's called the Native American Renaissance. She tells Steve Paulson about her memoir The Turquoise Ledge.

Finally, Crazy Horse was the greatest Indian warrior of the 19th century, much more than just the victor over George Armstrong Custer at Little Bighorn. Pulitzer Prize winning historian Thomas Powers, author of The Killing of Crazy Horse, is fascinated by him, and tells Jim Fleming that Crazy Horse was a leader both off and on the field. [Broadcast Date: March 9, 2011]

Listen to The Killing of Crazy Horse by Thomas Powers.
