"All the Real Indians Died Off"
"All the Real Indians Died Off" And 20 Other Myths About Native Americans By Dunbar-Ortiz, Roxanne, 1938- Book - 2016

Each of these chapters could be an entire book on its own (and Dunbar-Ortiz and Gilio-Whitaker cite a lot of other work within each one, so if you want to learn more about any given chapter you can easily find more information), from the issues with sports teams using Native people as mascots, to the myth of Columbus’ “discovery,” to misconceptions about casinos. Dunbar-Ortiz and Gilio-Whitaker both explain the history of each myth, how and why it originated, and how it persists and impacts Native lives today.
