Please welcome our 4th of July Special Guest WOMENACE, Chahta Summer Wesley!! Summer's an attorney and activist with Choctaw Nation and she's back to chat about some major recent SCOTUS decisions regarding Native peoples. Summer shares the complexity of what it means to be Indigenous in America. Today many of us celebrate the Declaration of Independence. However, we must not forget that while this revered document proclaims our freedom from tyranny and oppression, it calls Summer's people "Merciless Indian Savages".
"I think we're putting band-aids on arterial bleeds when we need to be working on actually addressing foundational problems."
