What is it to be indigenous? Why do the perspectives and claims of native peoples merit unique attention and why is it so tragic that such perspectives have been lost or suppressed? In this episode we focus on the history of native peoples in America and South Africa and look at both the complexities and the importance of that status. What forces threatened to erase indigenous cultures and their understanding of the world? What would a world that seeks to include indigenous perspectives and knowledges look like?
