KSPS's Sovereign Nations is a two-part series that tells the story of how the Native American soverign nations of the Inland Northwest came to be.
The relationships that began forming when fur trappers first came to the Northwest in search of riches affect the way the government and communities interact with Native Americans to this day.
Episode two of this documentary series focuses on the establishment of Native American Reservations, loss of Native American land and economies, strategic application of U.S. legislation by tribes and preservation of Native American language and culture.
