Dunbar-Ortiz has a long history of political activism. In the
1960s and 1970s she was involved in the women's movement. In
1974, she accepted a position as Assistant Professor in the
newly-established Native American Studies Program at California
State University at Hayward. This began her life-long
commitment to indigenous peoples' right to self-determination.
She has written
books on this topic.
In An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States, Dr. Dunbar-Ortiz condemns the colonialism that devastated the Native American populations in the United States.
