Where is Indian Country today?

North Carolina Cherokee reservation Los Angeles

The answer is, anywhere Indians are – whether that’s the North Carolina rolling hills of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians or the urban canyons of Los Angeles where 280,000 Native Americans live.

What’s being written in Indian diaries today?

It’s a good bet that Native Americans are writing about issues like identity, sovereignty, cultural preservation, family life, health and economic development. Those are the same issues that these programs and this web site will explore.

Please come back in the future as this site develops and offers additional information about the issues, the historical context of those issues, the programs and the producers.

“INDIAN COUNTRY DIARIES” will premier on PBS in November 2006 in conjunction with Native American History Month.

PBS now has a preview page online.

The series goes inside modern Native American communities to reveal a diverse people working to revitalize their culture while improving the social, physical, and spiritual health of their people. Told with wonder, humor and insight, INDIAN COUNTRY DIARIES is a must-see “State of the Union” report from modern Native America.
