Why do reservations still exist? What is the story behind Indian casinos? What’s the issue with the Washington Redskins? Join us for answers to these questions as we explore American Indians today. Valerie Lambert is an enrolled citizen by blood of the Choctaw Nation; she discusses how her tribe rebuilt itself during the late 20th and early 21st centuries in her book Choctaw Nation: A Story of American Indian Resurgence.

Valerie Lambert, Associate Professor of Anthropology
