Rethinking blood quantum



Rethinking blood quantum

Host: Shawn Spruce

The Sealaska Corporation just dropped their blood quantum requirement for shareholder enrollment. Members of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe voted to end their requirements in an advisory referendum. Advocates for eliminating the blood quantum hurdle say it’s necessary to ensure future generations of thriving tribal culture. Today on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce hears from Joe Nelson (Tlingit), board chair of Sealaska, and Dr. Jill Doerfler (Anishinaabe), professor and department head of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota Duluth.

Plus, Levi Rickert (Potawatomi), publisher and editor of “Native News Online” and “Tribal Business News”, remembers the life and work of Tim Giago, who passed away Sunday at age 88.
