Black Indians: A Hidden Heritage. The author explores the little-told story of black Indians, defined here as people with dual African and Native American ancestry or African Americans who lived primarily with Native Americans. Using fascinating biographies and detailed research, Katz creates a chronology of this hidden heritage during the settlement of the American West.
Justin Secakuku is a member of the Hopi Tribe of Arizona and lives in the village of Shungopavi. On camera, Justin shares the Hopi view of white corn, known as the corn mother, and likens it to the value of women in Native communities to give and produce life. Justin was interviewed as a part of a joint project of the Indian Law Resource Center and the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center to define Native love.
