    This video explores the issue of racial identity among Native Americans and African Americans, and the coalescence of these two groups in American history. Perhaps the two most misunderstood and mistreated of minorities, Native and African peoples have often shared a common past. Yet today they are all but invisible-their heritage ignored, unknown and frequently denied by most Americans, many Native- and African- Americans and sometimes by Black Indians themselves. The video features interviews with Black Indians from many tribes (including Narragansetts, Pequots, Seminoles, Cherokees and others) who discuss such issues as blood versus culture, detribalization, and personal identity in an increasingly multicultural world.
