Abstract and Keywords

Urbanization has profoundly affected indigenous peoples. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, more than half of all American Indian and Alaskan Native people live not on reservations or in rural areas, but in towns and cities. According to the 2000 US census, some of the largest Indian populations are in places like Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and Seattle. This study focuses on the widespread indigenous history in and of urban places to draw attention to important themes and debates in the scholarship on Native peoples and cities and to articulate a broad agenda for a new approach to urban Indigenous history.

Keywords: urbanization, indigenous urban history, indigenous urbanities, Indian communities, cities, Red Power
