We find that in our faith, we find that in our art we find that in our love of each other, and I think one of the things I discovered working on country music is that When I understood this dynamic between the US and us lowercase uppercase that I realized there's only us know them. The choice was easy because us the Americans struggle to forge union from diversity has been Ken Burns obsession since he was 11 years old at the end of this lane in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

What Happened To Connie Converse
"In nineteen twenty four elizabeth eaton converse was born into a devoutly religious family being by the nineteen forties. She changed her name to connie and moved to new york city to pursue music. She spent her twenties writing folk songs and rebelling against her traditional after little came of her musical ambitions in new york. Connie moved to ann arbor michigan in nineteen sixty where she took an editorial position at an academic journal by the age of thirty six. Connie was struggling with her mental health in particular and affliction she referred to as her blue funk. This was made worse. When in the early seventies connie received two devastating pieces of news. She lost her job and her doctor told her she needed a hysterectomy. After turning fifty in august nineteen seventy four. Connie converse said goodbye to her brother and friends packed up volkswagen beetle and drove away. Officially she's never been seen or heard from again in her final instructions to her brother. Connie asked philip to pay her health insurance up until a certain date. She never explained. Why but philip worried that something terrible would happen. When that day passed searching for answers. Philip found a filing cabinet that belonged to connie in his antics inside. He found old journal entries poems notes and a farewell letter addressed to quote. Anyone who ever asks it read. So let me go please. And please accept my. Thanks for those happy times that each of you has given me over the years. And please know that i would have preferred to give you more than i ever did or could i am in everyone's debt. Philip did as connie requested. He let her go for thirty five years. Never knowing if she was alive or dead always hoping she'd return but from the moment she laughed. Philip and connie's closest friends feared the worst they own about connie's blue funk for quite some time though. Connie was never officially diagnosed with clinical depression. So far as we know in her farewell letter she wrote as an over educated peasant. I've read a good bit about middle-aged oppression and no several cases other than my own. According to establish psychiatric consensus those who suffer from major depressive disorders tend to lose interest in activities that previously brought them joy in connie's case when she moved to ann arbor. She stopped writing music. But even while living in new york connie's lyrics described feelings of isolation in her song called. Sorrow is my name. She wrote from the perspective of sadness is self sneaking in and out of people's minds in the bridge of the song sorrow kroons. And if you fear me i will come in haste and if you love me i will go away and if you scorn me i will lay you waste and if you know me i will come to stay. Perhaps connie wrote from her own experience overcome by a deep unshakable sadness that she felt would live inside her forever. She certainly wouldn't be the first person to live with undiagnosed depression in fact historians theorized that many historical figures battled similar mental illnesses before they were ever fully understood for example. Both frankenstein author mary. Shelley and president abraham lincoln reported experiencing significant bouts of melancholy. They'd regularly fall into deep sadness often unrelated to the events of their day to day lives. Some scholars have interpreted these spells as episodes of clinical depression diagnosis. That didn't exist in the eighteen. Hundreds when both lived almost a century later as connie struggled with her blue funk there was still an incredible amount of debate surrounding what constituted and caused depression throughout the nineteen hundreds doctors around the world published opinions but the medical field never reached consensus early. Researchers like sigmund. Freud believed depression was the result of traumatic experiences of course psychologists today understand that the causes are much more nuanced and multifaceted. They include both genetic and societal factors and this understanding started to take shape in the nineteen seventies when clinician set standards for diagnosing and treating clinical depression then in nineteen seventy five one year after connie disappeared doctors. I coined the term major depressive disorder.

I didn't see a road sign. But I'd stop driving second talk, but that's good. OK across just probably out of South Dakota by about 50 Miles. Okay, Tell me about Operation Face Shield. What is it? Since I'm a nurse. I worked at U of M Hospital, and I knew right at the beginning of this pandemic that we were going to run out of P p E. Because I knew how even in ICU step down. You know how quickly we throw away our base. Shields are gloves and stuff. And when I do you know, it's like, Whoa. This is gonna go out. I wasn't working at the hospital, but I figured Well, we're gonna have to run out. We're gonna run out of goggles. Pretty quick, So I started messing around with Three d printing and figured out how to with with, you know, it was a very organic kind of situation where all these three d printers kind of jumped in and helped design the face shield that we built. And then we started distributing throughout Ann Arbor and spread out through metro Detroit and quickly got to Chicago. Um, one. The guy from the yard reached out he's gotten several 1000. And then we transitioned into it in injection molded design, which is much faster to print than so All told before before your trip to South Dakota this week. How many face shields have you distributed? Someone around, 53,000. We, um I originally set a goal when I thought I was going to start a real jobs because I'm like, well, pandemic might be over. I'll get a job and my goal is to get as many as the old Tiger Stadium used to see which is 52,000. And, uh And then the job fell through. And then the second wave hit and I was like, Well, I guess we're back in business. And, uh, since that, duck, so so you make these Kevin and then I'm assuming you sell them, right? No, no, We have not charged for any of them. It's um Basically the nature of three D printing and common. What do they call that common? See? See what a collective comments and stuff was born. More like Um, just get him out there. Try and save some lives. Get him out of the get him into the ICUs. Initially it was to help get the respiratory therapists and protections.

E don't know They a lot of stuff just showed up in the mail, and we got donations. And just like this drive the money just shows up when when it has to happen, And, uh, we had a really good, um Symbiotic relation with a pattern maker who actually made the dye that we inject mold over first. I want a fair state on non ferrous state. Michigan was like in Big Rapids, Michigan. They're like, Well, we got we got our plastics department with shutdown. So, um, Brian Patrol car over there was like you can run as many of these as you want, as long as we don't have classes and This pattern maker up in Lapeer. All these people I never met. He was like, Well, I guess I can cut you die. And when he cut this diet took him three or four weeks to do it. And when I delivered that up to Ferris wheel guys that there were like, Oh, that's what this is about 53. They were like This is about a $53,000, which is funny. I never even thought of that before, but they actually said that price they're like this is probably like $5400 or $54,000. So it all comes back like that. It all comes back to Tiger Stadium somehow, doesn't it? And so so that no idea what So then you're doing that. And then I'm gonna introduce Tom Carnell. Damn! Did I pronounce your name correctly? Yeah. Dom Cornell. How you doing? Okay, Great. And so, Dom is an undergrad it to Paul and Dom. It was your idea to connect Kevin with the Lakota nation or what's your role here? Road that that's just about it. Josephine Thunder Shield, a great Lakota leader there in the Dakota tribes that the great to tribe About four years ago. Now, my 21st birthday I found out what was going on with the North Dakota Access pipeline being built on the treaty land and now disastrous. It was convened to the environment and Their land there, so I went to be a part of those protests and live there on my 21st birthday lived that state there for almost six weeks. We got really connected to the community and saw firsthand Uh, you know, just the lack of resource is an opportunity that many of the tribe and the folks there have and and now with the pandemic in the past two weeks About 23 Lakota elders have passed away because the governor there is is not really implementing the necessary public health initiatives to really you know, locked down and help the people. So the folks there are dying and then they're in trouble. And so she reached out to me and And I think that Hey, we got we gotta stick together and build community and and help him out of the best way we can save like that, I think was one who said in an email to us earlier that you know that. More than most traditions. The the age. The elderly in the Native American families or tribes are the elders. I should say, you know, hold the stories, they hold the language. And with this language, or this generation being sort of wiped out the cultures at risk, even so dumb How is it that you got in contact with Kevin? That's exactly right. There's the culture dying out. And so so Kwan who I know through the cannabis industry here, done some great work together on fighting for Equitable cannabis industry. We That's how we know each other. And and he's a registered nurse. And I'm an organizer and activist here in Chicago, so through his nursing network, he connected me with Kevin, help provide us with the face shield. Now we're working together to really get down. The resource is the P p and the stuff they need to fight this thing. And so, Kevin, you just arrived. You dropped off the materials. At the Lakota nation, was it earlier today? Yeah, Literally. I rolled into town it like 1 30 in the morning and the everybody was asleep. Hopefully, I was like, Well, I guess I'll just park here and go to sleep. You track my truck.

Doug Taboo spoke to the only surviving team owner and others about the legacy of the legendary leagues in 1920 owners of independent black baseball teams from the Midwest gathered in Kansas City, Missouri. At that meeting, they created the Negro National Leagues. No, I didn't. We're making history. They didn't care about making history. Bob Kendrick heads the Negro Leagues Baseball museum there, he says. Faced with segregation, black owners and players kept pushing for organized baseball. These athletes never cried about the social injustice. They went out and did something about so you won't let me play with you and I create no and they did today. Stars like Josh Gibson, Buck Leonard and Satchel Paige are enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but thousands of black and Latino players endured bigotry and racist taunts. It was terrible four the players at that time. Many Forbes owned the Detroit Stars from 1956 to 1958. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that placed try of them. They had nowhere to stay because of the discrimination. So they slept in the buses and they couldn't go in places to eat. So one person would go to the back door and get food for the players. Pedro Sierra pitched in the Negro leagues for several seasons in the 19 fifties. He grew up in Cuba and says it was tough to adjust. To segregation and racism he saw in the U. S. It was to see all day problem with the raise. I know all about it, herb artist. But how did experience it Today? Sierra lives in New Jersey In 1954 he signed with the Indianapolis clowns at the age of 16. His salary was less than 5% of what white players were earning. The clouds are fading $100 a month, a month, $100 a month and I looked back. Oh my God. Jackie Robinson played briefly in the Negro leagues. Then, in 1947 he broke baseball's color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in Cleveland, Larry Doby became the first black player in the American League. Coming seasons brought many more signings. But many Forbes sympathizes with the many athletes who were good enough to play in the major leagues but never got a shot. Unfortunately, some other good players by the time the time came, they were too old to play the last league folded in the early 19 sixties. The Negro Leagues. Baseball Museum estimates there are about 100 former players still alive. Forbes is 88 worries about being one of the last left to tell the story. And I just wonder if I'm worthy of represent and speaking about the Negro League because When I got involved, things was easier for me. Then it wass the one before me. Many Forbes will keep sharing her stories with younger generations and others will to Major League Baseball has a day to honor the league's set for next month.

"Thank you for being with us America is Orange County California is about what's up I retirement advice regarding if you had what interests are and what okay where is option so he had the thing apple had him for about one thousand four hundred a ten year certain life annuity able to him about the three hundred and about the damage to my mom but five years is certainly for one thousand about one thousand four hundred and the lump sum was how much one thousand four hundred nominal the lump sum there's little lump sum explicitly there's the only three monthly options that's all there is why worse is coming from hi this is Rahul from that is that for from his from his job from the pension it depends yeah okay and they're not and there's no art is used to work there yeah it's not working out about five years ago no he has no ability to take a lump sum withdrawal I don't think I have been so short if he does that's my preference and I would roll that to an IRA a traditional IRA in good growth stock mutual funds okay in in let me stop a second I'll come back to your other three okay but the reason for that is when you die a pension dies with you or with your spouse if you have survivor benefits either one okay it dies eventually if you take a lump sum and let's say this is twelve thousand dollars a year so let's say that lump sum is a hundred and sixty thousand Bucks okay we're not that far off and you put that mutual fund it'll produce more money per month and it survives you that hundred sixty thousand your money it's sitting in your state right but if you die dies and leaves stage the pension fund so that's why I would take a lump sum and roll it to an irate out of a pension if I can do that okay it is sounds like that's probably a possibility they may have not just offered that up but he's he's out of the business he's at retirement age and so it's very unusual you can't take a lump sum but let's say he can't so let's look at the other three options go back over them again for me okay the first one was able to to have done this one thousand four hundred a month the other almost ten years payable to him and my mom about them four hundred each but if he does that a hundred and twenty months before hundred if he if he does if you're after a hundred twenty months not nobody gets paid of the five year is about four hundred to him at home I also and then it's a busy day after sixty minutes no benefits payable to your beneficiary and there's about five other option the percentages how old is he sixty five okay houses health very good health well the longer he lives the more the first option makes sense the shorter he lives the let the other two options make less and less sense does that make any sense yes I don't know I I'm gonna go back to my original I think that's there I'm probably tempted for option two which is twenty eight hundred dollars a month for ten years is that right two one thousand four hundred if they both live how's your mom's health excellent so they make it to seventy five there's no problems right they just got the money that I understand that right yes yeah and so I'm like I'm what I'm trying to do is always get my money from them as fast as possible as quickly as as much as I can because if I don't want to die it's gone and even if you don't need it all you roll some of it into investments true so are they have other money to live on yes they have social security and she has a nother pension and social security as well okay so let me let me end it with this and you got a radio answer which can be a wrong answer because I don't have time to really crunch numbers of the calculator minimize yet okay but I think I'm about right the general premises is that we want to get away from them as fast as I can because that way it doesn't die when I do and the the the tip of the spear on that the best one is the lump sum we follow the concept so that's what I'm leaning on and that's why I'm liking the the ten year idea at fourteen hundred H. twenty eight hundred Bucks that seems to make sense for that reason now here's what I want to do that number one I want to check on the lump sum option and see if it's there number two I want to take all these numbers and dump them on a smart investor of ours much more Vester pro clicks more Vester Dave Ramsey dot com the does investing I'm not in that business but that's what we recommend it'll drop down a list of people in your area to sit down and talk to you can choose among those people sit down with one of them and say alright here's with your mom and dad there the three of you and say all right let's go over this give calculator out and let's work the math on this given that we have two healthy sixty five year olds okay and I work it out but if lump sum is there you don't have to run the calculator anymore the decisions dont take the lump sum okay and roll it to a traditional IRA in smartmetric and broken help you do that as well pick some good mutual funds drop that it's probably a hundred fifty to a thousand Bucks because probably calculated on about a six percent rate of return and most of Ammar Sarah is in Ann Arbor Michigan hi Sarah how are you I'm great thanks for taking my call sure how can I help I think it's going to say that my husband and I are debt free except for our house and we plan on having that paid off by this year good my question though pertains to a bonus check that my husband is going to be getting this month from work how much of this about seventy five thousand not nice balance on your home about one fifteen okay cool good yeah no co workers are saying that they plan on taking a portion of that money to fully fund the four oh one K. for this year my question pertains to is there any benefit to do that birth is getting one large check knowing that he normally maxes out the four oh one K. well last year he did in June so there's not a whole lot of he's gonna mix it out anyway right back to those doing going he's doing things his co workers are doing June twenty million or four oh one K. so they just opened their just dumping this in there but he's already got his four oh one K. maxed out for the year we've got a plan to not count this bonus that I understand you're right yes that's correct yeah you know the deal doing different just just keep doing what you're doing and take your center five thousand box and use it on the baby step that your own and enjoy some of it and give some of it by the way you ought to really go do something fun hello well we plan on it when you go to well

that's you got to go do it look because it sounds like you guys make over three hundred a year yes I smell it again yeah don't don't enjoy some of this may take about ten or twenty thousand of it and just below it in because only three things you can do with money you can enjoy it you can give it and you could invest it and you should always be doing all three and I just want to set you free from guilt for enjoying it because your husband works his **** off yes he does yeah absolutely so just enjoy the just go live on the bottom of the ocean where it's blue and clear and see some beautiful stuff yeah that sounds great I enjoy it be given some of it and then run through the rest of it at the house because your own baby step six we need to get this house knocked on out you're already doing your fifteen percent of your income into retirement if you're doing that you got your margins refine your debt free we're gonna walk right down those baby steps every time you're just right near the age baby step seven you're almost done you'll be done very shortly what the numbers are given me so I'm very very well done thanks for calling in open phones at triple eight eight two five five two two five now some of you can't relate to making three hundred plus a year spent twenty thousand dollars on a vacation I understand but that doesn't mean she's wrong just because you can't get your brain reference as a matter fact those ratios are actually really reasonable it's kind of like somebody making a hundred thousand dollars a year ago huge bonus Jackson spent five thousand Bucks or push the same number and if you think you think it the N.

Essie why which is really all you need to know just putting Kelsey museum of archaeology and you'll get it this is kind of the reason I got into the art world and it may be you share this too I wasn't drawn to it because of great scholarship in the fine arts I wasn't it was I wasn't attracted say to gallery culture right away I was introduced to it at an early age but that's not what really made me stick with stick was I found the it would make a mistake was that that that that I found the union between my historical interests and the art the artifacts that were around that were excessive all to me and so the Kelsey is a very very good example of how you can be introduced to something you have that affirmation in a building in a number of collections that immediately taps something that's it's been on your mind it's enhanced your whole life your love of history you look at the history books in school or go online and you're looking at images and my god that's absolutely beautiful it's considered an artifact but it's a work of art it's a fragment I'm thinking of the beautiful Roman of the foot I think it on sandal foot there at the Kelsey and its permit collection all it is it's a broken foot life size part probably the on a statue of a of a god possibly you know maybe it got us up on a pedestal this is all that is just a fragment of that where the rest of it is maybe somewhere else maybe you know destroyed the beauty in just that segment of the peace is overwhelming almost and I look at that beautiful pace and you know often when I go up there all right when one second floor in the Upjohn when we're most of the classical art is captain the beautiful Barossa watercolors of the avail of the mysteries and talk about that more detail in a little bit you come into contact with or you have an audience with Rome's first emperor Augustus and I've written about this in my own website it's speaking of art daca speaking of art online dot com and read about it maybe a few years ago and every time I go there I feel obligated to see about since it's almost like on your back in Detroit during the fifties and sixties now and he is he's got to go into the the diner where in Greek town where the mafia head in that neighborhood is you just you don't really need anything just going up to pay your respects why every time I go to the Kelsey I feel I have to pay my respects to Augusta so I go up stairs in this head is looking at me from the time I come up the stairs and die what is great about the sculptures and again it is just the head it's probably part of a four piece which again is is is is lost a full length but we have this magnificent head which of course the description of puts it as the the prima Porta model of the most famous of a statue of the emperor Augustus is the one wearing his clearest his armor in the Vatican collections in Rome and this came to America in two thousand three maybe you saw there would just go online just put in the prima Porter P. R. I. M. A. Porter P. O. R. T. A. it was found in a villa that was owned by his consort Lydia hello Mister Claudine came from a very old Roman family so I was kind of like a real union when they landed senatorial Claudia's would would done you don't marry a member of the Julian family of course said progress is being the great nephew Julius Caesar and eventual inheritor of the empire and creating the empire you know from the ashes of the Roman Republic but it was found in the garden of her villa I and it was a sensation that along with the Apollo Belvedere an absolute sensation in terms of Roman sculpture and by large wonderful condition I mean the decorations on the breast plate that Augustus is wearing it shows the restoration of the standards that were lost in fifty three BC in the massacre out in the desert by the Parthians and crosses the sun in the legions they're surrounded what was called just simply a whirlwind of Sandon arrows taken by surprise lured out and did that the did the desert they were completely you know the first day of the time and and running low on on their supplies they were attacked over a long period of time and finally just in massacred in it took many years for those are Roman standards of the regimental standards to be returned to Rome so they were like sacred objects that were out of Roman hands they were in the hands of the Parthians for a long time until August this was able to negotiate their return that was a big her rope thing a big piece of propaganda and it's right there on his breast plate if you look at the face of Augustus there it sets the stage for the formula of a Roman Emperor not only justice but his successors successors for a good number of decades and then leave and come back again during the time of Hadrian's second century and then during I think also maybe one of the greatest periods of Roman sculpture the Antony period and what comes up to the Severin period from about one sixty one fifty one sixty all the way to about two twenty to thirty a day where you have new technologies coming in there the drilling a fax the use of shadow with a brings the sculptures absolutely fantastic the detailed hair and everything when you you see the progression of Roman sculpture over that hundred fifty years it's it's absolutely incredible but the prima Porta Augusta set the stage for that for a lot for a long time what's great about the Kelsey's version is that we've got the formula we have the locks separated above I think the right off by and that's done over and over again after that but what you have in the Augusta head in the Kelsey you've got the face not of a man in his twenties of a man of about maybe thirty five and you see the lines beginning in his cheeks you see the furrows in his brow you see the cold stare of his eyes in the firm's set mouth there's some damage I think that in the chin it's there was damage berry for a long time but what is there let you realize what's the old saying that national leaders usually are nice people now they they can be celebrated you know for being great humanists and for their erudition and and in their beneficence and all that to the common good but in the nitty gritty of politics and war they're usually not nice people you see that in the face of Augusta this was the man who bonds with Marc Antony before they had their civil war drew up the prescription lists of those people senators who were not supporters who would simply be visited by their agents later I think of the Pretoria guard but there officers from the other regiments with them and simply stabbed in their own houses they were just taken and just simply executed every time there was a change you had that type of a program against people who are not your support is what happened the Cicero with Mark Antony Antony hated Cicero and so it's a big deal going down the street one day in his letter there's a commotion behind East Texas had Alaniz the has it had cut off but one of Antony's men it was not a good time if you were on the wrong side of historical change we try to go about your business in you get that impression when you look at that fabulous head of Augustus in the Kelsey museum I don't know another example anywhere else I remember going into the Vatican collections and being of the PM tour that I was given with the curator there and I swear it looked like a triage center in a hospital it was like some sort of horrible thing had happened to sculptures and they were all coming to the Vatican they were lining the halls two and three deep they were filling the rooms they had more sculpture than they know they knew what to deal with and I I pointed it wanna Astor is that Antoninus Pius the amber from the mid second century and she said could god who knows we have so many we can't even keep track of them right well all those types of sculptures never one with the photographic accuracy the psychological penetration that I see there on the Kelsey with the head of a cost us there to one of my favorites if you proceed just beyond Agustus you have also an emperor who like to be depicted as he was I think of what Cromwell said one of his painters they said paint me warts and all that's where we get that expression well the emperor Vespasian who finally settles things down after the the year the five members after Nero commit suicide risk I think he commits suicide everybody basically leaves them in the palace and I think he has one of his freedman or slaves yeah I do that the code gras he has nowhere to go portero I mean such miss rules such such over confidence thinking that that things would not change what's amazing about Roman history when you when you think of the end of that monarchy how it evolved how many of the bad emperors kept forgetting what happened to their predecessors with the Pretoria is running rampant massacre in their families whatever their sassy they really didn't learn that quickly hi and it's it's it's really remarkable history affects some of the greatest excavations are going on now and have been for the last fifteen years or so are the excavations of the imperial palace complex in Rome right there at the foot of the forum when you visit there when I was there the last time they were in open now the revealing rooms or they think that that events took place you can see the unfolding a history of the palaces as

Colorado thank you both for being here and Riyaz before the break you were talking about The significance of the history. And just where we got to today and of course. There are more Things that you'd like to share just paint this picture fully. Please do and also open up. Why we're even talking about any of this about where land exists and it doesn't under tribal jurisdiction in how it applies to this case Go ahead continue your thank you You know where we got to where we are. Today is a really interesting question. So it Congress An axe the statutes and the in the very early part of the Twentieth Century Paving the way for Oklahoma statehood as I was saying before the break. None of those statutes Say Anything about just establishing the creek reservation but what happens is in nineteen o seven. Oklahoma becomes a state. That's right around the same time that oil is discovered in Oklahoma and you have this tremendous influx of settlers The Creek Allotment Act which was passed in nineteen. O One Took the what was communal. Ownership of the creek. Nation parceled out Lots to creek members almost exclusively to treat creek members. The land of the reservation was divided up with the idea being that Consistent with federal policy of the time. That the creeks were would own their land in individually they would learn to become farmers they would be acculturated but it would still be their land But we all know what happened What's been described as a orgy of plunder and exploitation with that land having all of a sudden become incredibly valuable because of the oil deposits. There was all manner of Fraud Cheating and worse. Outright murders To dispossess the creeks of their land so in a pretty short amount of time. A reservation that under federal statute entreaty was still meant to be controlled by the creek. People in terms of landownership Ended up having a very large proportion of non Indian ownership and because of that confluence of factors over time. Sort of the argument welled up while there's not even a creek reservation here anymore. Look at look at it demographically. It's largely Non-indian and what this litigation is really about is reaffirming the rule of law which says that even despite what happened in terms of this orgy of plunder and exploitation and the transfer of land title to a largely to non Indians Congress disestablished the reservation boundaries and those remain intact so that the creek nation while it might not own much of the land within the reservation just as true for my say my home state of Michigan which does not own most of the land within Michigan's borders that those borders still still exist in talk to me a little bit about the authority of the courts. Mary Catherine especially Intertribal nations when it comes to all of this and we think about where jurisdiction lays plenty of issues when it comes to policing as well as Crimes committed anything more. You want to share just to make things clear when we talk about Why murders even claiming this happened on indigenous land? Sure yes one thing. Very clear right Anyone who studied federal Indian Law Understand that it is. You know a giant complex network when A crime is committed within the borders of a reservation on tribal lands or against the native victim or by native perpetrator. There is a huge complex jurisdictional analysis that law enforcement that You know a potential prosecutor whether there'd be federal state or tribal. Everyone has to undergo an this crazy analysis right and at the end of the day And we can agree or disagree with this law but the law is that you know and again I can come up with some exceptions but by March if the victim is not native and the perpetrator is native. Even if it's on a reservation in most instances the state right is going to have jurisdiction and so at the end of the day you know we know right now. Creek. Nation has a reservation. That's never been disestablished. It exists let's say regardless of whether the status quo is maintained changed really not going to alter whether or not Oklahoma has criminal jurisdiction over over the majority of the crimes committed within the borders of what we understand the the creek nation reservation today. Why because federal law is crazy it that way and we can debate it but at the end of the day. Oklahoma is going to maintain its jurisdiction over. You know the majority of population is very point out is not Indian and they're going to maintain jurisdiction over the majority of those crimes however Tribes ever in nineteen seventy eight. The Supreme Court eliminated tribal criminal jurisdiction over non Indians who come under tribal lands and commit crimes. And that's been very unfortunate and Indian country and a lot of our are made of women understand that this is contributing to wide native women suffer the highest rate of domestic violence sexual assault and murder in the United States. Today it's the Department of Justice is noted majority of violent crimes committed against native victims are committed by Non Indians. Congress has taken action to address this vision all from nineteen seventy eight and twenty thirteen restored tribal criminal jurisdiction acts criminal acts of domestic violence dating violence in violation of protection whereas committed by Non Indians so our lives today can protect their citizens living on travel and some those crimes but if you look at volatility thirteen statute very clear that those categories of non-indian crimes the try to prosecute them if the crime is committed on quote Indian country and that is a very a term defined by Congress to include a treasure ovation. So if you have a reservation today which not just create nation. That has this issue right. You've got tried to sue or standing rock or you know Fort Birth hold or Tulalip. Who have reservations that have survived statehood and have survived allotment right but if Oklahoma wins and Oklahoma gets to say no no no if your reservation was created before the state came into existence. You can no longer have a reservation today regardless of whether Congress ever just established you then all of a sudden those types who may have already or may seek to implement Vala twenty thirteen's restore criminal jurisdiction will now be put a law where they cannot protect their own tribal citizens against these three categories of non Indian perpetrated crimes anywhere within their borders. And instead they'll have to go under undergo and even more complicated analysis About the individual status at that parcel of land is that individual personal of land and restrict status. Is it in trust status. Is it non Indian fee lands In which case it would not be Indian country under the statute and so it. Actually the court's decision this case could have far reaching implications for the ability of tribal nations to implement vase restored criminal jurisdiction. And that's something. Oklahoma doesn't want to talk about right because really what's at stake here is not Oklahoma sovereignty but the sovereignty of our tribal nations. And that's really I think important to keep in mind and something that you know. Certainly Oklahoma won't be spreading in their conversations about this case. And so I WANNA get your your take to just thinking of the justices who are GonNa be hearing this and what you just explained. How deep is their knowledge on on? How tangled all of this is especially when we come to Violence in our nation's in I do want to let folks know that we did reach out to the state of Oklahoma In and invited them to be on the program. Today we did not hear back from them In America for Neagle tell me about The analysis of you know the knowledge of the point. You just brought up in how verse justices are in all of that. Well you know and I will defer to answer this question too because certainly the supreme court is his area of expertise but justice course such as a as an intellectual heavyweight when it comes to federal Indian Law You know historically a lot of the justices on this court did not study Indian law in law school. It's an area. They're very unfamiliar with. We're very fortunate that just gorsuch will be hearing this case. And if you've looked at the precedents. He has written his the decisions he wrote in the Tenth Circuit and since he's gotten to the Supreme Court it is clear that he in a very intellectual way under stands federal Indian law the complex framework of Criminal Law on tribal lands Dealing with tribal citizens. Both you know in reservations offers divisions rush. You know he understands all of this in a way that I think few other justices can parallel I think there are few other justices on the Supreme Court that have done a lot to educate themselves on these issues.

"This is native America calling. I'm Taraji would the. Us Supreme Court is again looking at a case that involves a crime a citizen of the Muskogee Creek nation and whether or not someone should have been tried in federal court. Jim C mcgirt was convicted of raping a child in Oklahoma State Court. He received a life sentence plus five hundred years. He maintains a conviction is invalid because he should have been tried in federal. Not State Court. Mcgirt is citizen. A federally recognized tribe the cases similar to a claim made by Patrick Murphy. A citizen of the Muskogee Creek Nation. He admits he murdered a man in nineteen ninety nine but he maintains he should have been tried in federal court. A ruling in his favor could up in his death sentence. The question on both of these cases is over land and Oklahoma's unique status with tribes and whether Congress properly disestablish reservation boundaries more than a century ago. We are inviting you into this conversation. Did you learn more about it? Maybe you've been following the long and have some thoughts on this. What a decision that would go either way would mean for tribal nation's sovereignty land status go hidden. Dial in our phone lines are open. You can join us today at one.

Great to have year Also join us to Ann Arbor Michigan. Today is Riyaz. Kenji in he is a partner at Kenji and Katzen and he represents the Muskogee Creek nation in the mcgirt case. My pleasure to welcome here Riyaz. Welcome thank you for having me. Tara and thank you for being here with us today in Merry Catherine Let's start with more details on this case and just essential things you think. People need to understand When we talk about what this really could mean why headline say Oklahoma Could turn into chaos go ahead and establish a little bit more so I I do have to say as someone who was born in Oklahoma and as a citizen of a tribe in Oklahoma I I find a lot of headlines that Oklahoma has been promoting the incredibly disappointing. And I think Truth Bending is very kind way to describe them and I of course defer to Muskogee Crete nations attorney Who was also listening here in this interview because this is their reservation at stake but the tenth circuit was very clear a couple years ago and it's decision. Congress has never disestablished the creek nations reservation. That means it's still in existence and that's the you know plain simple truth and of course the brief that My Law Firm submitted was on behalf of the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center as well as tribes that have implemented the restored tribal criminal jurisdiction in the Violence Against Women. Act from twenty thirteen and so the points we were making simply Just how chaotic it will be and how troubling it will be for the tribes to have women involved is all of a sudden. A new precedent is established which no federal quarter Supreme Court has really held this. Before that. In instances where. Congress has not just established a reservation. Court should feel free to do so. That would actually create chaos. But I know Oklahoma certainly want folks to think that the sky is going to fall. It is not The reality today is that Christians evasion has never been established by Congress. It would actually be more destabilizing for the Supreme Court to do that. In this instance Then to uphold the tenth circuit decision and say. Actually the reservation has not been disestablished. Congress which is in fact the case and I think Oklahoma sort of grasping at straws here in terms of the different arguments. They're coming up with but the fact that a reservation still exists does not alter the individual ownership of the land within the reservation so non Indian landowners business owners that doesn't change doesn't affect their ownership of their homes or their land or the vast majority of the crimes perpetrated within the borders of the reservation. The state will still maintain criminal jurisdiction over many crimes. It's not It's not as easy stabilizing this. Oklahoma would have you believe in. I do need to make a correction. I was given wrong information In the INTRO Talking about his ruling could up in his death sentence. It's not Fact and we'll get closer into the Patrick Murphy case coming up but Mary Catherine when we think of all of this and Really what a decision in the supreme court could mean Either way let's talk a little bit about them. Yeah it's it's actually if the Supreme Court in this instance and Riyaz can explain this to what we're dealing with now is a bit of a procedurally positioned different case than Murphy Murphy was The state of Oklahoma seeking cert seeking the Supreme Court's Review. After the tenth circuit upheld the continued existence of the reservation since that decision has not been fully Adjudicated on the merits from court has not issued a written decision. This last time they did grant cert on The current case mcgirt. And so you know in that case You know this is coming out of the Oklahoma Supreme Court's decision to hear the The appeal that McGrath had filed the Oklahoma Supreme Court. And you know again. It's the same question of okay the Tenth Circuit has said. The reservation still exists Oklahoma still wants to assert criminal jurisdiction over an air. You know a few flip crimes that are actually clearly left to the federal government into to the tribal government. And that's that's really what's at stake here. It's a small number of crimes and And at the end of the day this is really what sovereignty is about. And there's no other sovereign that has more interested steak right then a tribal nation when it comes to protecting children and its citizens on its own land and at the end of the day You Know Oklahoma has made a lot of arguments. They've tried to make it sound. Like you know half of the state will go back to quote unquote tribal ownership which is not at all the case. the fact that a reservation exists does not alter the ownership of who owns the land inside the borders of the reservation. And that's the case in South Dakota. That's the case in the state of Washington. That's the case with every reservation in the United States right. Now there's a lot of non Indian ownership of reservation land especially the simple fact because of the dog acts and various other federal laws over time so at the end of the day What you know create nation and all of the folks who filed briefs in support of creation like my client the national indigenous women's Resource Center. It's really asking for a maintenance of the status quo. Don't change anything. Oklahoma is actually asking for something that would upend a hundred years of Supreme Court precedent and when completely alter the law around winner Reservation Candy disestablished? And how

Mae and back in the day the national association of realtors Sam welcome to real estate today thanks for having me we're delighted you're here so Sam let's start with mortgage interest rates right now they're in the mid threes so what do you think can they go even lower they could it really depends on the path of the economy economic growth is currently slowing of the economy grew two and a half percent and twenty eighteen we project that will grow two point two percent this year and one point eight percent next year. only one we have slowing or decelerating economic growth it's usually accompanied by an environment of lower interest rates and lower mortgage rates so there is the potential that mortgage rates will continue to drift downward artificial forecasted that they'll remain side ways but there is a likelihood that they could just lower so let's push this all the way to perhaps the illogical extreme. could it ever happened that mortgage interest rates are actually zero percent I ate out a possible but unlikely because of the time value of money and I think a lot of the negative interest rate environment that we are seeing currently our aim countries with very weak economies or contracting economy and that's just not the case in the US the US economy is currently the strongest among the developed world market so it's possible but unlikely okay excellent well thank you for that answer Sam so in terms of the mortgages people get for buying homes and refinancing homes these low mortgage interest rates can either save people money every month or at our buyer to get into a home that they might not have been able to afford it the higher rates this is really good for housing absolutely a lower interest rate environment means people can re finance which freed up cash flow for the owner and that cast will can be spent on other consumer goods and it makes the purchase market more affordable to to the buyers and we all know that the real state Michael is the business cycle so if if counting and doing well typically the economy is doing well excellence so Sam as we enter the fall market of two thousand nineteen what types of mortgage products from Freddie Mac should people know about as they think about refinancing or perhaps buying a home are increasingly popular mortgage products are aimed at buyers with lower down payment after and so that is one feature it to look at especially in markets that are less affordable because these are products that allow many prospective homebuyers to overcome the biggest hurdle that they have and historically that has always been the down payment and in a market where home prices are becoming less affordable. particularly on the coast of market that is a product that is becoming more and more popular I see now looking at the other end of the buyer spectrum the people who are not saving up to get a house because they've got plenty of money now tell me in that sort of a situation. is a thirty always a poor choice compared to a fifteen year fixed rate mortgage it really depends on the personal circumstances of the bar where you know if you have a shorter term mortgage of course you gonna save on interest and you'll get a lower rate so it always makes sense if you could afford it to be able to do that but it really depends on the circumstances of the bar or we have seen some instances of not just purchased buyers using a fifteen mortgage but those that re finance from my thirty three fifteen because in that case they not only lower the rate quite a bit but they also shorten the term which means that they will they will lead to a lower total interest costs of the mortgage interesting in the last question for you as we all enjoy these ultra low mortgage interest rates in your take is the fall of two thousand nineteen a good time to refinance or buy a home I would say if you look at the market today home prices are growing at a good sustainable rate home sales are expanding because the economy is doing well and given the low rate environment if you are able to be financed yet typically make sense from a home buyer perspective as long as home prices continue to rise next year if you can buy today it makes sense because it just if you wait till next year it'll be more expensive that's a really good point because after all if you're looking for a home rising home prices are against you but if you get in and buy a home rising home prices are in your favor. you build up equity and that's what ownership is all about absolutely well Sam I really appreciate you talking with us today

payment after and so that is one feature it to look at especially in markets that are less affordable because these are products that allow many prospective homebuyers to overcome the biggest hurdle that they have and historically that has always been the down payment and in a market where home prices are becoming less affordable particularly on the coast of market that is a product that is becoming more and more popular I see not looking at the other end of the buyer spectrum the people who are not say. being up to get a house because they've got plenty of money now tell me in that sort of a situation. is a thirty always a poor choice compared to a fifteen year fixed rate mortgage it really depends on the personal circumstances of the bar where you know if you have a shorter term mortgage of course you gonna save on interest and you'll get a lower rate so it always makes sense if you could afford it to be able to do that but it really depends on the circumstances of the bar or we have seen some instances of not just purchased buyers using a fifteen mortgage but those that refinance from my thirty three fifteen because in that case they not only lower the rate quite a bit but they also shorten the term which means that they will they will lead to a lower total interest costs of the mortgage interesting same last question for you as we all enjoy these ultra low mortgage interest rates in your take is the fall of two thousand nineteen a good time to refinance or buy a home I would say if you look at the market today home prices are growing at a good sustainable rate home sales are expanding because the economy is doing well and given the low rate and Barkley makes sense from a home buyer perspective along at home prices continue to rise next year if you can buy today it makes sense because it just if you wait till next year it'll be more expensive that's a really good point because after all if you're looking for a home rising home prices are against you but if you get in and buy a home rising home prices are in your favor. you build up equity and that's what homeownership is all about absolutely well Sam I really appreciate you talking with us today about mortgages in today's unique environment of super low mortgage interest rates thank you thank you David you're very welcome Sam cater the vice president and chief economist of economic and housing research at Freddie.
