Roxanne 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 several 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.
