The challenges of being Native American in Oakland

Hosted by  • 

Tommy Orange is a member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes of Oklahoma, but he grew up in Oakland. His new novel, “There There,” is set in Oakland. His many disparate characters -- all urban Indians -- struggle with what it means to be Native and struggle to connect with disappearing traditions.
