Wrongs Exposed

Podcasts such as this are absolutely criticial because they expose the true history of our country and it's drive for profits over the rule of law and humanity. The past and ongoing abuses of Native Americans need to be carefully watched. A reminder to the Five Tribes of Oklahoma...stay vigilant, greedy corporate American will continue their efforts to steal your land.

Informative and very interesting

Such a great listen! This podcast gives a great information. It uncommon to hear perspective of the history of First Nations and it is so important. I appreciate the opportunity to hear this history from a journalist who belongs to this community.
