#186 Get Off My Land! (with Nick Estes)
This week’s guest is Nick Estes! Nick is an indigenous scholar, activist and Assistant Professor in the American Studies Department at the University of New Mexico. His research engages: colonialism and global Indigenous histories, decolonization, oral history, U.S. imperialism. His nation is the Oceti Sakowin Oyate and he is s citizen of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe.
If you’re interested in history, colonisation and politics this is the podcast for you. Nick has incredible knowledge. We discuss a lot, from US politics and how Biden’s new plan for clean energy is not necessarily so clean, the history of indigenous people and the colonisation of their land, the power oral storytelling and our sacred relationship with world around us. In fact, much more is discussed in this 90 minute podcast - you will learn a lot from Nick.
