Reservations & Incarceration

In the novel, There There, by Cheyenne and Arapaho author Tommy Orange, violence, a stereotype of Native Americans, is characterized by five of the twelve cast members we are introduced to in the book. This project digs deeper into Native American incarceration rates, and analyzes the disproportionate rate at which they are locked up compared to White Americans.
