In this special edition of the podcast, Rebecca interviews Native leaders from across the country at the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) annual convention. This episode features conversations with eight different tribal elected officials and staff members sharing the issues facing their tribe – from environmentalism to tribal sovereignty to invisibility. Guests also share their hopes for the future, what they wish non-Native Americans knew about tribes, and the importance of coming together at events like NCAI.
