"Reciprocity by Confounding Thanks/Giving"
George E. (Tink) Tinker (Osage Nation), Professor of American Indian Cultures and Religious Traditions at Iliff School of Theology (http://www.iliff.edu/academics/faculty/profiles/gtinker/index.php) joins us today to discuss the settler society's collective amnesia, reinforcing the master, colonial narrative, and how governments, institutions, and agencies across America are using the month of "November" to establish "Native American Heritage Month" ("Indian in the Cupboard Syndrome") as a means to coopt, placate and pacify indigenous peoples from engaging in critical forms of decolonization, self-determination and sovereignty. This, plus news on American Indian Airwaves.
