program date:

 Shusli and Sean

Doug Schofield of the Winnemem Wintu joined us at Tillicum Wawa: Voices of the People, in a discussion of the War Dance they held on the McCloud River a couple of weeks ago to protect their coming of age ceremony from folks who have no respect for such events. He also gave information on how people can help which can also be found at their website: winnimemwintu.us.

 

We also talked with Sean Cruz about food security in Indian country, from hunger to obesity, diabetes and other health issues, the history and current issues, and the work he is doing in creating a Native American food co-op.
