Summary

America's Existential Crisis: Our Inherited Obligation to Native Nations is a historical journey and a road trip through "Indian country". The surprising stories of two ancestors of the author lead into the Plains Indian Wars, the 1830 Indian Removal Act, the Potawatomi Trail of Death, and the massacre of Sioux at Wounded Knee.     

The book makes the case that the history of land theft, broken treaties, massacres, and cultural suppression created a moral obligation of the USA to Native nations. Because the United States of America pledged to grant "justice for all", the author argues that Americans must reckon with that history by paying off the debt and cleansing that historical sin. The book proposes how that can be done through the culturally sensitive development of Native communities.
