Right Wing and Anti-Indian Network Project (RWAIN)

Originally sponsored by CWIS beginning in 1986. The Center conducted this project to study the phenomenon of population displacement by non-tribal members experienced by Indian nations in the United States. The study was conducted in cooperation with Indian Tribes, local organizations, the Western States Center and the Center for Democratic Renewal. The project examined and updated data for events in the United States of America, with a new phase beginning in 1996 with a focus on Canada. In 2004 and the years beyond, Anti-Indian organizing continues unabated.
