Oct 16, 2019

Benjamin Madley is a historian at UCLA, but he's a child of far Northern California.  His exposure to the Karuk people and homeland spurred his interest in Native America, colonization, and genocide. 

Madley's first book is An American Genocide: The United States and the California Indian Catastrophe, 1846-1873.  It lays out in detail what happened to the original people of California. 

He shares some of the details in this interview.
