· Familiarizes readers with the policies of the U.S. federal government that created diasporas, removals, reservations, and relocations for American Indians
· Encourages readers to consider fresh perspectives on urban American histories and exposes readers to a thorough analysis of colonial space, race, resistance, and cultural endurance
· Written by expert scholars and civic leaders who are themselves American Indian
