The 2018 PBS series, "Native America" highlighted Indigenous communities and showed the intricacies of social, religious and educational structures. Four new hour-long episodes are in production. Series producer Jennifer Himmelreich gives us a preview.

From the Inflation Reduction Act signing to the upcoming White House Tribal Nations summit, Holly Cook Macarro puts this into a Native lens for us.

Voters headed to the polls in Wyoming and Alaska on Tuesday. ICT’s political correspondent Pauly Denetclaw is back with more election updates.
