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 include:

Do Native calls for land return mean that I have to give up my home?

Doesn’t federal aid form an unhealthy dependency between the government and Indians?

Are casinos bad or good?

A friend has asked me to resist the Line 3 pipeline. But I know Native people who are in favor of the pipeline. Shouldn’t I wait to get involved until all Native people agree?

What about the Cleveland Indians?
