The new school board in Cambridge, NY has decided to double down on the use of their offensive Native mascot. On the very day the latest right-wing board member was sworn in, this new board with their pro-mascot majority made it their priority to rescind a previous resolution that ended the use of the mascot and made it clear that they will continue to use their offensive mascot moving forward. Heather Bruegl, the Cultural Affairs Director for the Stockbridge-Munsee Mohican Nation, joins John to discuss this recent development in Cambridge and more on this episode of Let's Talk Native. The closing song is a medley of The Halluci Nation featuring “We Are The Halluci Nation with John Trudell & Northern Voice” and “ALie Nation with John Trudell, Tanya Tagaq, Lido Pimienta & Northern Voice.” →→→→ Like what you hear?
