The Experiment Podcast: Give National Parks to Native Americans

Ojibwe author and historian David Treuer argues in The Atlantic that we should return national parks to Native Americans. Treuer, who wrote the book The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee: Native America From 1890 to the Present, says that he “would like, when people look up at vistas, like at Yosemite or at Yellowstone, that they’d look up as a way to look back at the history of this country.” The national-park system has been touted as “America’s best idea,” and in this episode of The Experiment, Treuer posits that we can make that idea even better.
