This Land Episode 4

I have been enjoying the podcast. Both the history of Cherokee Nation and legal questions are fascinating. But very disappointed the author could not resist making a political attack against President Trump. Not a Trump fan, but not necessary to politicize the podcast in that way.

The history you were never taught

Native American history is white washed and they are still being harmed by the US Government. This excellet podcast gives a crash course in history and the impact it is still having today.

Fresh, much-needed perspective

Thanks so much to Rebecca Nagle and the team for an outstanding podcast. For once, we get to hear a Native perspective. The complaints that it’s advocacy for only one side of the issue, remind me of the people who don’t like Black Lives Matter, and counter with “all lives matter.” Of course, that goes without saying, but the lives of indigenous people, and those of their ancestors, have been systematically devalued, disregarded, and regarded as disposable. It’s about time somebody spoke up to offer us their side of the story — the side of their adversaries is all we ever hear.

As a genealogist, I bear the knowledge that many of my ancestors (those who were not pacifists) fought Native people to take control of the land they had inhabited for countless generations, which for some reason, these newcomers felt entitled to settle on. I’m anxiously awaiting the Supreme Court’s decision, hoping that some small measure of restorative justice may be won by the Muskogee Creek Nation on behalf of all of our country’s indigenous peoples.

And I’ll mention that I really liked the calm, deliberate pace and tone of the narration. If it were more impassioned, there would just be more accusations of bias. I found it a lot easier to follow than some of the fast-paced, bubbly, popular podcasts.
