Aaron Huey: America’s native prisoners of war | Video on TED.com

Community Village‘s insight:

In Clear Lake county California there were Native Americans in a row of old run down houses. As a kid I would look at those houses from the back seat as my parents drove by them. They never explained who those people were and I never thought to ask :/

This video is a sort of condensed version of the documentary movie 500 Nations – but with modern photographs.
