    [Roxanne Dunbar-Ortíz] An Indigenous People’s History

    The history of the U.S. is one of settler colonialism. The state was established on the basis of white male supremacy, slavery, land theft and genocide. “From sea to shining sea” the Native nations were decimated and dispossessed. The survivors herded into concentration camps. The genocidal policy reached its peak under President Andrew Jackson. Its ruthlessness was best articulated by Army general Thomas Jesup, who, in 1836, wrote: “The country can be rid of them only by exterminating them.” Native people are still here. Today, there is growing support for their movements such as the campaign to abolish Columbus Day and replace it with Indigenous Peoples’ Day. The Dakota Access Pipeline resistance led by the Standing Rock Sioux was joined by many non-Native allies. The action, though unsuccessful, captured the imagination of people everywhere. The struggle for indigenous rights continues.

Occupy episode

You have clearly overplayed the hand with Occupy which had overrated, by you, attributable political underpinnings and dismissed the whole of the Vietnam, civil rights and feminist era.

MY FAV PODCAST but NO feed

Quality all the way- But Seems they are more interested in hiding & controlling content than in getting the info out. No way to even pay to get the other shows apparently on here! If the left was more generous of info like this we could avoid the ignorance which will cause U.S. to soon fall into AUTHORITARIAN RULE.
