In this interview, North Dakota Indian Affairs Commissioner Scott Davis speaks candidly about the current state of Native American affairs in North Dakota. He talks about being at the table in discussions of the politics and economic development of North Dakota; about living in two worlds, at times between worlds; about the widely held myths about Native American life. He also talks candidly about his own path as a young man with Ojibwe and Lakota parents. Davis is an optimist who believes the lives of Native Americans are improving dramatically in the second decade of the twenty-first century. He also speaks about President Obama's visit to Cannon Ball, ND in 2014.
