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. It claims the United States has ignored its obligation to adequately provide Indians in urban areas with health care services. Michigan Radio's Jack Lessenberry spoke with Kay McGowan. She is an anthropologist with the National Urban Indian Coalition, which is headquartered near Detroit.
