On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll learn about the Native American population in Northeast Ohio. Many people of American Indian heritage don't trace their history to ancient inhabitants of the Western Reserve: Instead, they were moved here from distant reservations, mostly in the west, as part of a federal relocation program after World War II. We'll talk about the economic struggles of urban Indians and get a snapshot of the local community today. Join us with your questions, Tuesday morning at 9:00.
