“This guide is filled with information from the largest research study ever done in Indian Country about the current story and ways to change it. We used what we learned to create a new story — one we have always known is true — and then proved through national testing that it works. It changes people’s understanding of Native Americans and increases support for our issues.
This new story must become the dominant story in the United States. Replacing the old story will take all of us, working together across Native nations, with all Native peoples and with our allies. It is an opportunity to build on many past and current efforts to tell our authentic stories, including the recent power of Standing Rock, seizing and continuing this moment for Native voices to hold the spotlight and the microphone.”
