This blog is a part of an ongoing project to learn and teach the history of North America from an indigenous perspective. Although it could be said to have started as soon as I first began learning about the past as a child, the project began in earnest in 2012, when I started reading about North American indigenous history in a more systematic way.
Initially, I wanted to write a book that would describe North American history from an indigenous perspective in a way that would be accessible to non-academics. As I started learning more, however, I realized how enormous a task that was, and decided that for now, a blog might be a better fit. While I still have dreams of eventually creating a book, this blog will be a place to write about what I’ve learned and read as I continue my journey.
My hope is that by writing this, I can help indigenous people to learn more about our history and reclaim it as our own.
