Native Roots Radio Presents Rock The Vote Native Style – August 16, 2022

Robert Pilot, Wendy Pilot and Ogimaa Giniw Ikwe host today’s show. Ogimaa has our news. She gives us details on what’s in the newly signed into law Inflation Reduction Act, water shortages in the southwest US, the Academy apologizing to Sacheen Littlefeather for treatment when she refused Marlon Brando’s Oscar in 1973 and more. Next we’re joined by Amber Torres, chairwoman of the Walker River Paiute Tribe in Nevada. In our sacred animals segment Wendy talks about how a carriage horse collapsed in the middle of the street in Manhattan, reigniting calls for a ban in New York City.
