- Program Description
Barbara Barrow discusses the recent executive order issued by Massachusetts legislature recognizing Native Americans with Clif Saunders, Director of the Boston Indian Council. Topics include the implications that recognition will have for Native Americans, the services Native Americans requested of the state before the executive order was issued (both socioeconomic and legal), the hopes for federal recognition, the still unacknowledged issues of Native Americans in the Boston area despite the executive order, issues raised on a recent Today show about Native Americans not wanting their land back, the "paternalism" of the the United States government, and the desire for self-determination. Additional segments include a 1974 interview with an unnamed aboriginal man from Australia conducted by Dighton Spooner, commentary by David Crippens from Say Brother program 103 and the "Community Calendar."
