Ep 16 Little Red School House Cross-Upload: On Decolonization Pt. 2
Thank you for downloading and listening. In this episode we discuss decolonization with Gord from Little Red School House. This episode and other are already available on their feed, so check them out now if you want your fix earlier. Otherwise since I am on a research trip this summer I am cheating and using these as my summer episodes with a double upload this month. I look forward to the next completely unheard episode and hope ya'll enjoy the summer vacation. I have also started a patreon again explicitly to fund my research on the American Indian Movement, Red Power, and Indigenous Resistance. The goal is to reach $500 a month so I don’t have to worry about my rent and bills, while I donate plasma and do podcasting to earn more money on the side. This all will contribute to several books, the People’s History podcast, and a large archival project of oral histories; as well as I will be dumb stuff along the side to have fun like a Pizza/Communism documentary I am filming on my research trip. So please help fuel these endeavors, and help me become a full time podcaster. With that I would like to thank the following people Lake P (the first every patron), the absolute best person Kelbaenor who is just a good friend, Rocco, Gina C, MIchael M, d-lang, and silverwit who have been Patrons every time it's been running. Our sometimes co-host cerb, Lazar long ass K-name, and lastly my boi Grant. If you want to be a part of this ever growing list of names please donate. We are 400 plus dollars away from the goal. However I would prefer if you donate to the Jarvis Bay community water drive which is $7000 plus off. I will be donating monthly, but obviously we all should. This thank you will go into the end of every episode after this summer I am sorry I can't do it sooner :c Our associated Patreon, Red Media Press Our website Our twitter @BandsIsland Editor @2hotskyfortrotsky Donations Help the Jarvis Bay community get Water Support the Freedom Van Camp Mni Luzahan Mni Luzahan Legal Fund HELP OUR RELATIVES Paypal: creekpatrol@onerapidcity.com People's History Patreon Zitkato's Research Fun

Ep 12 Interview with Mark and James from Camp Mni Luzahan (originally recorded in December)
Today @DarkMark and @OglalaWarriorAW join us for an interview about Camp Mni Luzahan, a camp meant to help houseless relatives in Rapid City. This episode was recorded in December, but I chose to release it in January. We were also a bit late on editing, but because I know tax season and a new stimulus is coming up and I highly encourage those who can spare some of that money to help this camp or one of the other causes listed in these notes.
