        Native American Boomtown | America by the Numbers: Episode 4

        Learn about the benefits and consequences of an oil boom for a Native American reservation in North Dakota. The Bakken Oil Boom is bringing billions of dollars and tens of thousands of jobs to the state. Fort Berthold Reservation has more than 1,000 oil wells, which have brought a significant amount of that money to its Native American community. But it has also brought danger: organized crime, hard drugs and traffic fatalities.
