Anton Treuer

Have you ever been so worried about being politically correct that you clam up altogether? Do you have cultural questions that you’re simply afraid to ask? Ask Professor Anton Treuer (TROY-erh).

In his latest book, “Everything You Wanted to Know About Indians But Were Afraid to Ask,” Treuer answers “more than one hundred stereotype-debunking questions.” Trust us, he’s heard it all, and he’s a great resource if you’re looking for a thoughtful conversation on the political and cultural issues important to Native American communities.
