"Native people came to cities looking for certain things that they needed - not to become like everybody else." - Donald L. Fixico, Ph.D. (Shawnee/Sac & Fox/Muscogee Creek/Seminole)

Urban Rez explores the controversial legacy and modern day effects of the federal government's assimilation policies that relocated American Indians from reservations to urban areas in order to end the Indian Reservation system. Firsthand experiences richly illustrate the Voluntary Relocation Program, which constituted the greatest upheaval of the American Indian population during the 20th century and how different generations from different tribes perceived their new urban landscape.
