Sun Dance in Silver Bow: Urban Indian Poverty in the Shadow of the Richest Hill on Earth
Vrooman was the first State Folklorist of North Dakota and the second State Folklorist of Montana. Currently, Vrooman directs Northern Plains Folklife Resources, based in Helena, Montana.
Vrooman is contracted by the Native American Rights Fund to help write for the Little Shell Tribe of Montana their petition for federal recognition to the Department of the Interior. Vrooman wrote and produced the Little Shell Tribe’s official history book, “The Whole Country was ‘One Robe’”: The Little Shell Tribe's America," funded by the State of Montana.
“The North American West has multiple narratives of who we are and from where we come, some of which are concealed,” says Vrooman. “Finding a voice for some of these little known stories brings to light narrative threads that flesh out and enhance a deeper meaning for life in the American West.”
