Treuer is also the author of 14 books. His published works include Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians but were Afraid to Ask, which answers “more than one hundred stereotype-debunking questions.” His most recent publications are Warrior Nation: A History of the Red Lake Ojibwe in 2015 and The Indian Wars: Battles, Bloodshed, and the Fight for Freedom on the American Frontier in 2016.
