American Indians are often left out of the traditional
American Narrative. Lisa Emmerich reveals the covering up of the dark history
between Native Americans and Europeans. The lack of basic rights given to
Native people continues to be a problem today. Emmerich explores the issue of
voting rights in North Dakota, involving the requirement of a street address.
She explains the issue this poses upon Native people, as they are unable to
vote because of this. As guaranteed as we may think our rights are, Emmerich
opens our eyes up to the reality for Native Americans in today’s society.
