In this powerful collaboration I am joined by Scot Zellmer who is related to members of the Rosebud Tribe in South Dakota. In this episode I share historical information while Scot offers a first hand account of the 2021 reinterment of nine children that died at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in the 1880s. Boarding schools throughout the United States and Canada in the 19th and 20th centuries are a source of generation trauma that still impacts Native Americans today. Although it is difficult history to learn, it is important to understand in order to reconcile our past and create a better future.
