Indian Country Diaries

Where is Indian Country Today?

The answer is, anywhere Indians are Ė whether thatís the North Carolina rolling hills of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians or the urban canyons of Los Angeles where 280,000 Native Americans live.

Whatís being written in Indian diaries today?

Itís a good bet that Native Americans are writing about issues like identity, sovereignty, cultural preservation, family life, health and economic development. Those are the same issues that these programs and this web site will explore.

Please come back in the future as this site develops and offers additional information about the issues, the historical context of those issues, the programs and the producers.
