ABSTRACT
This article presents profiles of two American Indians David Risling and Vanessa Shortbull, excerpted from the book 'Real Indians: Portraits of Contemporary Native Americans and America's Tribal Colleges,' published by the American Indian College Fund with assistance from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. David Risling explains his experiences of attending the Hoopa Indian School, where nobody was allowed to speak an Indian language. Risling's father took over the school in 1931 in an effort to work for Indians. Vanessa Shortbull wanted to go to college because she wanted to be a dancer, but went for political science classes on her teacher's advice. Shortbull presents her experience at a talent search audition held in Denver on September 11, 2001.
