A Journey to the Top

The trials and tribulations of Native Americans journey into today's society

Who: Margaret Coel
When: September 26th, from 7:00 - Noon Eastern

After enduring horrific conditions and laborious journeys, 21st Century Native Americans continue to become impoverished and are now forced to cope with the suffering of the previously afflicted generations. How can these tribes sustain living their own rich culture amongst today's high speed, high fashion, celebrity driven society with corrupt politicians, and steamy scandals?

New York Times Best-selling author Margaret Coel's latest novel, The Girl with Braided Hair, deals with the frauds against the Native Americans. Margaret weaves a parallel of the events of the heated summer of 1973, when activities of the American Indian Movement (AIM) were raging. She strives to showcase and prove that Native Americans are as normal and educated as your best friend. They are noble and flawed, brave and cowardly, funny and sad, good and not-so-good. They are people with a unique, wonderfully rich and ancient culture that can truly benefit all of us.

Margaret sheds light on the following:
§ How the rights of American Indians still get violated.
§ A historical context for the struggling plight of Native Americans.
§ How a tight-knit community can turn on its own and how such ostracizing can have deadly results or long-lasting repercussions.

§ How one approaches the solving of a cold case murder of nearly 35 years, with an unknown victim, no apparent motive, and no witnesses.

§ Why tales of the West still capture our curiosity.
