Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz grew up in rural Oklahoma, a child of tenant farmers. As a veteran of the 1960s revolution, she has been involved in anti-racist, anti-colonial, anti-imperialist movements, union organizing, and was one of the founders of the Women’s Liberation Movement in the late 1960s. Since 1973, she has focused on Native American and Ethnic Studies and worked with Indigenous communities for sovereignty and land rights, and helped build the international Indigenous movement. A historian, writer, and professor emeritus in Native American Studies at California State University, she is the author of numerous Indigenous-related books and articles, including An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States and Loaded: A Disarming History of the Second Amendment. Her most recent book Not A Nation of Immigrants – Settler Colonialism, White Supremacy, and a History of Erasure and Exclusion urges readers to embrace a more complex and honest history of the United States
