The Relocation of Native Americans

Clip: Season 21 Episode 9 | 1m 51s Video has closed captioning.

Most Native Americans do not live on reservations. This is largely due to the fact that the government thought one way to solve the Indian problem was to relocate Indians from the reservation to the bigger cities. Over 100,000 Indians were relocated in just 15 years.
