There’s plenty of talk about keeping bison and wolves in the nation’s flagship national park, but few people realize that American Indians were evicted from the area to make way for tourists, nature-lovers and wildlife. Nabokov and Loendorf examine archaeological and historical records to shine a light on the popular park’s native heritage.
