Ep 34 Mythbusting about Native Americans (Part One)

April 27, 2018

In Episode 34, we answer your questions about Native Americans and provide a few resources to help you grow your knowledge. The Trumpster Fire addresses the problem with Trump calling Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas." Our Fierce Woman Warrior this episode is Litsa Dremousis, the author of Altitude Sickness and the first woman to publicly share her #metoo story about famous author Sherman Alexie, which helped other women find the courage to come forward to share their own stories.

Our Media Minute asks you to read two books: Louise Erdrich's The Round House and Terese Marie Mailhot's Heart Berries. And finally, our Activist Action asks you play Thunderbird Strike, a simple and fun 2D sidescroller game designed by one of our prior Fierce Woman Warriors, Elizabeth LaPensee (Anishnabe).
