Marginalized For Generations, Native Americans Want To Be Seen
Native Americans are still fighting for recognition, livelihoods, land and even a voice in government.
Native Americans have spent generations trying to gain equal footing in a country that overlooked and, when necessary, overran them. Their imagery and stereotypes are ubiquitous in American culture, but Native Americans are rarely an important part of policy and cultural conversations.

You can see "The Why" Monday through Thursday at 7 p.m. ET on the Newsy channel. Check your local listings.
