A State of Perpetual Memory: Native Identity Through Connection to Land


Listen on

There is no singular Indigenous experience. We take a walk with five Indigenous Peoples from five different regions of Turtle Island in what is currently known as the United States to hear their stories about their identities, their cultures, and their connections to land.

Guests featured are John Scott-Richardson (Haliwa-Saponi Tribe, Tuscarora lineage from Six Nations), Carey Flack (Muscogee Creek descent, Choctaw Freedmen, and Cherokee Freedmen), Jeremy Dennis (Shinnecock Indian Nation), Lofanitani (Black, Tongan, Modoc, Klamath, and Cherokee descent), and Colette Denali Montoya (Pueblo of Isleta and Pueblo of San Felipe.)

Host: Jessica Ramirez. Producer: Stina Hamlin. Story editor: Tracy Rector.
