The Western Tribes

Wind Song Talk Show is in the middle of our Regional Mini-Series. This week, Stefani and I explore the Nations in the Western U.S. Last week, we took a break from our mini-series to discuss the issue of native students reprimanded for speaking their own language, specifically Menominee seventh-grader Miranda Washinawotok.The Menominee Nation the student is a member of is located in Oregon, so it wasn’t completely irrelevant.

This week will focus on the Central West, in which we mention and discuss several nations we come across on the web. This research is often difficult due the fact that not every Nation has joined the World Wide Web yet. The focus of the mini-series is to open the eyes of the public to the sheer number of Native Peoples still thriving today.
