Roberto Mucaro Borrero (Taino Nation) . Roberto, from the United Confederation of Taino Peoles (http://www.uctp.org/ ) joins us today to discuss defending the Taino ancestors and the misrepresentations, lies, and deceptions entailed in the recent Associated Press article titled: "Archaeologist Discover Major Pre-Columbian Site" which recently was published in"Indian Country Today" http://www.indiancountry.com/content.cfm?id=1096416037
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 societies notion of celebrating the moral benevolence of genocide (Thanks, but No Thanks Day or Thanks-taking Day) and how governments, institutions, and agencies are using the month of "November" to establish "Native American Heritage Month" ("Indian in the Cupboard Syndrome") as a means to co-opt indigenous peoples from engaging in critical forms of decolonization, self-determination and sovereignty.
