EPISODE SUMMARY:

Happy Holidays To All Our Listeners!

In This Episode:

A great listener question creates a deep dialog about Pocahontas, and why Native Americans react so negatively over Disney’s portrayal of her.

In Native News, a story about a new attack on the Indian Child Welfare Act by the Goldwater Institute. What is their TRUE agenda, and why are they committed to getting this protection Act for Native American Families nullified? Our hosts discuss…

In our main discussion:

A huge decision, the United States Congress has voted to lift a 184-year-old ban that prohibited distilleries on Tribal Lands. What impact will this have on Native American communities? Will this help or hurt an age-old stereotype that Native people endure over “The Drunken Indian”?


The Native Opinion theme song “Honor The People” is by Casper Loma Da Wa.
