Native American health care services under fire by Jack Lessenberry's Essays and Interviews
Jack Lessenberry writes: The stereotype is that Michigan's Native Americans live in rural areas. But earlier this spring three Detroit area Native Americans filed a class action lawsuit against the federal government.

She is an anthropologist with the National Urban Indian Coalition, which is headquartered near Detroit.
