Unfinished Business with America’s Indigenous People’s
Interviewed by Jordan Anderson
For the first episode of this two part presentation, we’ll be taking you to a conversation between Jordan Anderson and Pax Natura board member and former Director of Indian Affairs for the State of Utah, Forrest Cuch. Forrest is a member of the Ute Tribe of Northeastern Utah and a dedicated conservationist.
In this episode, he gives us some insight into a broad range of issues that affect indigenous communities in the US today and the still-present effects and unfinished business of the first meeting between Christopher Columbus and the Tanos People. Forrest also shares some of his thoughts on how we can build a more just, equitable, and healthy world for us all.
Discussion also includes insights from the books My Grandmother’s Hands by Resma Menakem, and The Book of Destiny by Carlos Barios.
