Expert talks about American Indians

You could definitely call him an expert.  Paul Brill has been collecting tribal genealogies and information regarding clan kinship systems and clan names using both oral histories and archival information for many years.  Even since his retirement from the Bureau of Indian Affairs in the 1980’s he has continues to be very actively involved with what he calls his passion.  Mr. Brill, originally from Terre Haute, Indiana, has worked with every tribe in the United States since the 1950’s.  He knows the Native American Indian well.
