The geography of this country was reshaped in the late 1800s and depending on who tells it, it's either a story of good intentions...or one of outright theft.

oh Boy. I'm reading Neiwert's Alt America at the moment. And in it, there is a chapter where he cronicles the cringy ridiculousness that are these white militias (the Bundy family and their ilk) and how they threaten and harrass federal agents tasked with preserving the environment and destroy native artifacts with nearly total impunity out of a completely bullshit sense of bring oppressed by federal government. And then I listen to stories like this. Oh boy. Imagine Native Americans would react that way to their very real oppression. Fuckn racist shithole country.

I actually do wonder how much of this history not taught in schools. it might just being in a southern state but we don't shy away from the horrors of the US government over the course of it's history. there were added details that we didn't get but broad strokes are definitely there. I am very interested in seeing how things go in the supreme court since I wasn't aware it was even issue being discussed. I also feel that that some bashing of the hypocritical left wing politicians that are just as guilty as the right should be addressed in some degree. I mean Clinton was at least briefly associated with gold water. I mean evil white people is the current message of the Democrats but they aren't really talking about indigenous peoples and the issues they are dealing with. just my feed back I would still like to hear and learn more. maybe making a spinoff series talking more about the history and culture. sharing as much as you can in a way that will endure and can be spread. I would listen to it anyway.

Thank you for this deeper dive than anything I have ever been exposed to before regarding tribes and how they function on a daily basis today. Understanding the past and present threats to tribes can help us work together to fix the future.

this pod is important, well-produced and teaching me so much. the history of the United States holds so much pathological violence, deceit and willful amnesia, it's a tragic wonder the nation has not yet self-destructed. I sometimes think the present strife is evidence of our past catching up with us.

This podcast has been a great educational experience and history lesson and I was especially taken back by the events that were transpiring in episode four, that is until, Ms. Nagel decided to share with us her current political views. While trying to finish the rest of episode four I couldn't help but think this exceptional story of Indian history and the unfortanete fate of the Ridge's and the Trail of Tears was just tainted and overshadowed by Ms. Nagel's inability to refrain from weaving her political views into this podcast.

Important information hindered by a near monotone delivery.

I love Rebecca Nagle's work and activism. I'm excited to start this podcast. We need more activist voices and politicians to protect the rights of Natives; now more than ever.
