This organization and podcast has come such a long way. I’ve been taught so much and I love that Jen is on as co-host. Thank you all for everything you do to make this world better. I truly respect your effort and look forward to all you offer us.
I came across the Red Nation about a year ago and have since learned SO much about the past, present, and future of Indigenous peoples in North America. I had somewhat heard of Indigenous activism from recent years like “Land Back” and the protest at Standing Rock, but the Red Nation podcast has really given me a much deeper knowledge these topics and many more, as well as an understanding of why these things are so vitally important and urgent to the wellbeing of not only Indigenous peoples but the planet as a whole.
I am a witness to miracles.
