The Indigenous 'womb to prison' pipeline

 

March 26, 2021



Wildly high, 60 percent of juveniles held in federal custody are Native Americans. Once there, they serve sentences far longer than other juveniles sentenced locally for similar offenses. American Indian Prison Project working group's Stephanie Autumn, who is Hopi, joins the show today. Autumn is the organization's executive director and will be discussing their work and programs.

And reporter/producer Kolby KickingWoman, who is our resident sports guru is keeping an eye on teams and tournaments. Kolby joins us today to talk sports and to share details from another story he's writing.

Plus we have a story from the far north of lost regalia, a treasured family headdress that turned up 15 years later. The piece comes by way of our partners at APTN. Tina House shows us how social media played a big role in this story.
