EPISODE SUMMARY:

We introduce a new weekly segment called “America…Examples of Racism” a feature which focuses on high profile examples of Racism across the United States.

Native Stories in this weeks episode include:

The Trump Administration anticipated lack of support for Border wall funding, and utilized the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to waive The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, (NAGPRA) and other laws to fund the border wall. How could that have been done without some kind of resistance?

Republican Representative Tom Cole (Chickasaw Nation) is taking heat for not supporitng a resolution that rebukes President Donald Trump for declaring a national emergency along the U.S. border with Mexico, and Native Twitter was not happy…

The top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, who is retiring at the end of the year, refused to vote in support of Savannah’s act, a law that would have provided much needed support nation wide in providing resources to tribes and local law enforcement in processing Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women cases. One man stopped all of this… we dicuss…

And finally, over 2000 Native American remains were found in the home of a Indiana man. Why are some American Archaeological enthusiests facinated with keeping the bones of our ancestors?

Music featured in this episode is from Black Fire.

Plus our Listener feedback & Voicemail
