Default-piece-image-1 This program features interviews with two different women from two different regions in the United States, both who are standing up or their Native Communities and Native American rights- Faith Spotted Eagle who is a Yankton- Dakota/Nakota Tribal member, is part of a protest to stop the construction of a Hog Farm, that is using a BIA road to access its building site, surrounded by checkerboard lands- some are tribal, some our private. Longview Farms LLP from Iowa is establishing a Hog Farm, "west of Wagner South Dakota" that, according to Faith and other protesters, is too close to their tribal facilities and they are concerned about health hazards and pollution. According to www.ktiv.com: "The three building swine confinement operation could hold up to 7600 head, but the group plans to have about 4000 sows on site." The second interview is with Brenda Golden: Muscogee (Creek): an active and vocal member of S.P.I.R.I.T: (Society to Preserve the Indigenous Rights and Indigenous Traditions) based in Oklahoma. This interview was conducted two days before her organization was presenting "the State of Oklahoma with a Resolution calling for the end of land run re-enactments in public schools and to teach the true history in schools." With members spanning all across the USA, Brenda says , "SPIRIT is a group of individuals dedicated to getting the true history of American Indians told. We organized for the purpose of making a difference in the state of Oklahoma. Brought together initially during the November 16th Survival Walk and Remembrance Day, SPIRIT is moving forward with addressing issues affecting all Indigenous Peoples of the Americas."
