KCPW Presents: “Uprooted: The 1950s plan to erase Indian Country” (11/15/19)

This documentary presents the voices of people who survived a devastating plan to solve “the Indian problem.” In the 1950s, the U.S. government launched a campaign to assimilate Native Americans by eliminating reservations, terminating tribal governments, and persuading Native people to move to cities. Hundreds of thousands of Native people relocated to distant cities such as Chicago, Minneapolis, Detroit, Oakland, and Los Angeles.
This special will air on Friday November 15th at 10 AM and 8 PM here on 88.3 FM KCPW.
