New Americans, a long view and the labels.

I had the pleasure of writing an introduction to a fabulous issue of On Second Thought, the magazine of the North Dakota Humanities Council.  The issue has a mix of personal narratives and scholarly-yet-accessible pieces about New Americans.  In North Dakota, we try to be cognizant of the fact that about 95% of us are occupying the sacred land of multiple tribes indigenous to the region.

I hope you find the time to read my introduction and the many fabulous contributions.
