Walking a Mile

In Walking a Mile, a study exploring how Indians and Non-Indians think about each other, Public Agenda found that, “While most knew that government treaties had not been honored, non-Indians had only a dim sense about what Indian treaty rights are.”

Many non-Indians we spoke to had a vague, simplified knowledge of Indian history, almost as if their thinking ended with the battle of Little Big Horn. …Few thought hard about the consequences of past actions toward Indians on their current condition.
