Red Nation Rising: From Bordertown Violence to Native Liberation

Podcast cover
Read more

Red Media is proud to present the publication of Red Nation Rising: From Bordertown Violence to Native Liberation.

Red Nation Rising is the first book ever to investigate and explain the violent dynamics of bordertowns. Bordertowns are white-dominated towns and cities that operate according to the same political and spatial logics as all other American towns and cities. The difference is that these settlements get their name from their location at the borders of current-day reservation boundaries, which separate the territory of sovereign Native nations from lands claimed by the United States.
