What Is the Oceti Sakowin Confederacy?

Sunday morning Nick Estes interviewed the CAIRNS director for The Red Nation Podcast. That episode dropped today, September 26, and can be accessed on Apple Podcasts here. The episode’s description is: "What’s in a name? Misnaming is central to the subjugation of Native Nations and the distortion of history.  Oglala scholar and founder of CAIRNS, Craig Howe, joins us to discuss the warped accounts of Lewis and Clark that he documents in the re-publication of This Stretch of the River: Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota Responses to the Lewis and Clark Expedition and Bicentennial (2006).  We then cover the origins of the Oceti Sakowin nations and the politics of American Indian education."
