Need to Fact Check Oklahoma Case

Just started listening to the show & like it overall. Although your synopsis of the Native American/Oklahoma case was not accurate. Please listen to This Land & contact its host Rebecca Nagel for correct coverage. There is so much misunderstanding and misinformation regarding this case that is ingrained in our collective psyche. Please learn more about this case. It’s important.
