Native America Calling
May 28, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Tribes and the state of South Dakota disagree whether tribes were consulted about the upcoming Independence Day fireworks display planned at Mount Rushmore. The U.S. Department of Interior cited tribal concerns as one of the main reasons for rescinding the agreement for the celebration. Also Native civil rights are at the heart of two high-profile legal fights. One is taking aim at Montana’s new voting laws. Another involves a school district cutting a Native student’s hair. We’ll also hear about how Native practices led the way for processing corn into many of the food products we now take for granted.
