Native Roots Radio Presents I’m Awake – July 15, 2022

Robert Pilot, Wendy Pilot and Ogimaa Giniw Ikwe host today’s show. Ogimaa has our news. She update us on Shanai Matteson’s trial, the Shell River Reunion, the next Water is Life Festival taking place in September and more. Next we’re joined by MN state Senator Mary Kunesh. She and the Native Roots crew talk about Jim Thorpe finally being awarded his medals from 1912, extreem rulings from the SCOTUS, education funding and more. In our sacred animals segment we get some fun (and somewhat downer) animal facts from Wendy!
