Spotlight: Parks - Yellowstone
We’re sharing an episode of the podcast Parks, which explores the truth about the creation of U.S. National Parks, retold alongside Indigenous peoples. This, the first episode of Parks, dives into the history of Yellowstone Park with guests Lynette Saint Clair (Eastern Shoshone) and Shane Doyle (Apsáalooke Nation). They share stories about Indigenous stewardship of this land from the Ice Age to the present, and speak about the U.S. treaties made and broken with local Indigenous peoples in advance of the establishment of Yellowstone Park. We’re grateful to the Parks team – Mary Mathis, Cody Lee Nelson, and Nia Tero’s Taylor Hensel – for their great work, their transparency, and their generosity.
Content advisory: This episode includes a discussion of Indigenous residential schools and colonial violence.
