The Ghost Dance Religious Movement

Host Mitch Jeserich speaks with Louis S. Warren about his book “God’s Red Son: The Ghost Dance Religion and the Making of Modern America,” which describes the pan-Indian religious movement that swept across the west and the great plain as a form of resistance and reconciliation to colonialism. This book is critical to understanding how the Ghost Dance contributed to the development of modern America and Native Americans today.

Louis S. Warren is the W Turrentine Jackson Professor of Western U.S. History at U.C. Davis.
