In the 1950s, the federal government moved thousands of Native Americans off reservations and into urban areas; Chicago is still home to more than 30,000 "urban Indians." WTTW has some background on the urban Indian project, and you can learn more by visiting the American Indian Center of Chicago at 1630 W. Wilson Ave.
