February 24th, 2020

In this episode, Treasure Shields Redmond and Saundi McClain-Kloeckner discuss Indigenous presence, water protection and human-environment relations along the Mississippi.

Saundra is a Black and Indigenous woman who has committed herself to making prayers at the Mississippi river in the way of Native women throughout the U.S. She is a part of a movement made visible most recently by the Standing Rock water protectors, and that is maintained by Native women up and down the Mississippi and other rivers.
