The new adventures of Super Indian

Arigon Starr talks about her new virtual exhibit at the Autry Museum of the American West. Plus we check in with Holly Cook Macarro on how actions at the Interior will impact Indian Country.

Commodity Cheese: love it or hate it, but for one mythical character it gives him super powers. Cartoonist Arigon Starr, Kickapoo Tribe of Oklahoma, presents "Super Indian." In conjunction with the Autry Museum of the American West, virtual audiences can listen to new episodes.

Holly Cook Macarro, Red Lake Ojibwe, is back this week. She’s a partner at Spirit Rock Consulting. Holly’s worked for tribal nations for more than 20 years and is a regular guest commentator on our program. Today she'll be breaking down the recent news from the Interior regarding federal Indian boarding schools.
