NPR stories about David Treuer
Stories about life on Native American reservations often focus on alcoholism, drugs, violence and poverty. In Rez Life, David Treuer shows the brighter side: "There might be more hardship, but there's more joy," he says.
Brothers David and Anton Treuer are members of the Ojibwe nation from the Leech Lake Reservation in northern Minnesota. Both professors, they work to preserve the Ojibwe language, one of the few Native American languages in active use.
