About this Episode

Have you ever had a question you wanted to ask a Native American but were too embarrassed to ask? In this recurring episode, Sarah answers your questions. In this episode, questions including:

What do you think about the movie Pocahontas?

If a child will be adopted out to a loving family, why doesn’t it matter if the family isn’t Native?

Aren't Native Americans immigrants also? They moved around a lot, too.

Can I become Indigenous to my place by going back to the land or loving the earth or doing ecological restoration?

My great grandmother was Native American, so I have “Indian blood.” So am I considered Native American?

Why do so many people claim to be Cherokee, like Elizabeth Warren?

Is wearing Indian jewelry or hanging a dream catcher, etc. cultural appropriation?

Indian Child Welfare Act: For more information, listen to episode 7 of this podcast, which is all about ICWA.
