In his trip from battling activist to federal worker, Smith tells us he has came across at the least issues: there isn't any one precise illustration of the yankee Indian event, or even the easiest of intentions occasionally leads to catastrophe. Everything you recognize approximately Indians Is Wrong is a hugely wonderful and, now and then, searing critique of the deeply disputed function of yankee Indians within the usa.

Smith walks this tightrope among comforting and unsafe, supplying unrepentant skepticism and, finally, empathy. “This publication is called Everything you recognize approximately Indians Is Wrong, yet it’s a ebook name, fogeys, to not be taken actually. in fact I don’t suggest every little thing, simply such a lot issues. And ‘you’ rather capacity we, as in all of us.”
