Earlier this month Beacon Press published All The Real Indians Died Off: And 20 Other Myths about Native Americans by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz and Dina Gilio-Whitaker. On Monday, in a counter-celebration to Columbus Day, we and many others observed Indigenous People’s Day, a day set aside to commemorate the history of Native American peoples. In recognition of the date, the book and authors were featured widely in the media including interviews with Time.com, NPR’s Code Switch, and Mic. Additionally, excerpts from the book were posted at Bitch, Quartz, Pacific Standard, Salon, and Colorlines.
The authors have also embarked on a 23-event tour, including stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Albuquerque, Tempe, Tulsa, Baltimore, Portland, Seattle, Washington, D.C., St. Paul, Denver, Boston.
