S5.E2 – ATWB: The Fight For Native Rights

By the Jilted Indian Podcast

Today is Indigenous People’s Day! In the first of two episodes, we discuss how America’s foundation of murder, theft, and exploitation continues to bear rotten fruit in the dismantling of native rights.

CW: In this episode, we talk about the tragic discovery of indigenous children’s bodies found buried underneath residential schools in Canada. We also discuss the current Supreme Court case attempting to dismantle the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), the Hawaiian Sovereignty Movement (Landback), recent news regarding attacks on indigenous rights in Brazil, and the Stop Line 3 movement.
