"November is Native American heritage month, and it seems like The White House is taking notice. This week, President Biden held a two day summit with tribal nations, where he committed to a series of executive actions from investing $13 billion in tribal lands to an executive order, promising to help combat violence faced by Native Americans. But it also seems like The White House is committed to unveiling the past. Back in June, secretary of the interior Deb Holland made a promise to investigate the boarding schools that many Native American children were forced to attend during the 19th and 20th centuries. Kids were separated from their parents, banned from speaking their native languages and forcibly converted to Christianity. Dozens of children died in some of these schools. By 1969, a Senate committee published a damning report, calling these schools a quote national tragedy that failed to adequately shelter feed or educate children. But exactly what happened at these schools is still largely unknown. Just this week, researchers helped uncover the names of dozens of children who died at just one school called the Genoa Indian industrial school in Nebraska. To learn more, we called up susannah heliga an assistant Professor of Native American history at the university of Nebraska Omaha and one of the co directors of the project documenting what happened at the Genoa school. Thanks for joining us. Can you explain what happened at the Genoa school and also what we learned this week? The school opened in 1884 and it closed in 1934. So we're looking at a span of about 50 years. It started off as a boarding school for the pawnee tribe and you had tribes from the surrounding areas that were forced to attend that school. We've been in the process since the summer of gathering this information. So it's all coming together slowly. Currently, we have about 87 student deaths that we have found so far. Our students that passed away at Genoa and it's through various reasons from illnesses to train accidents, shootings, drownings. I think a lot of people might be surprised to know that families were forced to send their children to these schools. Could you just talk a little bit about that history? I think by, you know, 1900, about 78% of all native children were sent to boarding schools and people think of schools of boarding schools you might think of it in a good sense, but these are really institutions that were part of in assimilation policy from the government to take children rip children away from their families and place them in these boarding schools, so they wouldn't have an attachment to family. They wouldn't have an attachment to land or to their culture or to their languages. And it was mandatory for students to attend school. If you look at the education that was provided for Native American students, only half the day was to be considered an educational part of the day, the other half of the day. They had to work. Children basically had to grow the food. You know, cook the food. So the clothes, they worked hard, woke up 5 o'clock in the morning, going to bed, 9 or ten o'clock at night. They were really used as hard labor. And you mentioned these schools were set up as part of an assimilation program. Can you explain what that program was meant to do and why the federal government created it? When you look at boarding school history, you see the word the Indian problem. You have set my residence looking at the Indian problem as Native American, their poverty, their dependence on government, but actually really it was the government and the settlers that were impoverishing the Indians. It was considered a problem. So how to get Indian people from complaining about wanting to have their land back or having their sovereignty or wanting to maintain their unique languages and cultures, the government came up with the way of taking the children away from their families and doing it as young as they could, the idea was to kill the Indian and save the men. Why is this part of the United States history unknown to a lot of people? When we talk about so many topics such as boarding schools, students always ask, how come we were never taught this in schools? Native American history is really difficult and it's hard and it's ugly and it's very political. And there's a lot of dark secrets that I guess that it might be easier to bury away than to reconcile and come to terms with. And I'm so thankful that Holland has opened up this investigation because it is. It's time, you.

"This is national native news. I'm Antonio Gonzalez. A new report from the government accountability office says the federal government is not doing enough to tackle the crisis of missing and murdered indigenous women. The mountain west news bureau's Nate heji explains. Advocates have long argued that indigenous women go missing or are murdered at much higher rates than other demographics. In recent years, Congress passed two laws addressing the issue. But the new GAO report shows that the justice and interior departments are missing important milestones set by the legislation. For example, the agency's failed to create a joint commission to reduce violent crime against Native Americans. And while the Justice Department has begun analyzing data on missing and murdered indigenous people, it doesn't have a plan yet to continue after this month. Lynette grebel is the director of the nonprofit not our native daughters. She's not surprised by the report. You know, it takes a lot of effort to make things happen and get not only your staff and program and an entire government agency trained on the issue, but also to move forward and implement that. That said, she also believes the agencies and law enforcement are taking this issue more seriously these days. But it's tough to know where to begin. After the release of the report, members of Congress said the federal government must begin implementing its recommendations. For national native news, I'm Nate hedge. Secretary of the interior Deb Holland hosted the session elevating indigenous youth at the UN climate summit in Glasgow Friday. Young people from around the world asked questions to panelists and pre recorded videos. They also voiced concerns about their communities and cultures being at risk due to climate change.

Other students talked about flooding, drought, irregular weather patterns and environmental justice, secretary Holland spoke about work on the federal level to move to a clean energy economy with an emphasis on underrepresented communities. She says it's important to hear from native youth. I am incredibly inspired when I have opportunities to meet with young people. So we're going to keep doing that. And that is my commitment to all of you as well. We're going to keep making sure that those young folks have an opportunity to speak with us because we are going to take a lot of direction from them. Assistant secretary of Indian affairs, Brian Nuland, co hosted the panel, which included representatives from world indigenous organizations. The bureau of land management has finalized the first federal land allotments as part of the Alaska native Vietnam era veteran land allotment program through the program the BLM can provide those eligible to select an allotment of up to 160 acres of federal lands in Alaska or land selected by the state or native corporations. The program is for Alaska native Vietnam veterans who did not have access to land allotments while serving in the Vietnam War. The BLM is working with other federal agencies, including the Department of the Interior to identify veterans and their families. According to the interior department, more than 1400 veterans and families have been contacted and nearly 130 applications have been received. Lance selection is open through December 2025.

"The big money and power players behind this lawsuit. And why did they get interested. You know equa has been around for forty. Years and compliance has always been an issue but in most of its history. It hasn't been controversial and then all of a sudden in the past decade it has been challenged more times than the affordable care act. And what we've found is that there's this really odd group of bedfellows who were using it as a vehicle to attack all sorts of things you know from tribal sovereignty civil rights as we think about this new administration. And i don't know if you can call new anymore. There's been a lot riding particularly after the trauma of the trump years on all the things that That folks have wanted the biden administration to do as we reflect on this moment. The conversation we shared about about cove nineteen in indian country the the case and the implications it has For so much of the broader infrastructure that we discussed the powers in the moneyed interests behind fighting and litigating the case. What do you want to see from this administration in do feel like they have the opportunity to deliver absolutely so you know some things that have been good about this administration. You know. I think the historic appointment of deb holland is a secretary of interior. She's the first person in the entire history of the united states to have a cabinet position and that position in particular is of particular significance to native people because the department of the interior has done a lot of harm. You know they were the department that oversaw boarding schools they were department that oversaw the federal indian adoption project that i just talked about and so to have native leadership. There i think is a step. It's not the end. But it's a step towards repairing that nation to nation relationship between sovereign indigenous nations and the us federal government. I would also say one thing that was measurably. Different is we saw in the early coveted packages. Tribes were included. But it was after A lot of behind the scenes fighting and horse trading basically we had some strong allies in congress including republicans like we're not voting for this if it doesn't include tribes and tribes weren't included in the original big package and we didn't have to have that same kind of fight with the most recent cova bill that passed under biden but of course there so so so much more that needs to be done. One of the big things is happening right now. Is the construction of another oil pipeline. Called line three through minnesota which goes through ojibway treaty territory and pipelines are significant for people. There was a lot of talk around like drinking water and at the dakota access pipeline by think one thing that people don't realize is that we have land rights within reservation boundaries but oftentimes we have treaty rights that extend beyond that and if there are projects that make it so that there aren't fish or there's not wild rice or there's not clean water that impacts are hunting and fishing rights..

Also one of the most beautiful places to photograph in the world which is kinda why. I'm here on the show today. We have an interview so big. It didn't fit into one episode. I have been a fan of photographer. Bob wick for years bob might have. What is the best job in the country. He takes beautiful pictures of america's public land's specifically bureau of land management land across the west. You may not know bob wick by name but you have almost certainly seen his work so as an amateur photographer myself. I was so excited when bob agreed to join us and talk about his remarkable career. Which oddly enough doesn't even officially include photography as part of his job description. So this is a two-parter this first episode is all about bob's career and how the bureau of land management has changed over the last thirty years and this is also video episode. You can find it on youtube or facebook there. You will get to see some of bob's best work as we talk about it. If you're listening to this podcast app that supports chapter markers you will probably see pictures as we go as well. But please don't look down if you're driving And then next week we're going to do a bonus episode diving into the nitty gritty of outdoor photography for photo geeks. Like me but first. Let's do the news. Interior secretary deb holland was here in colorado last week. Talking about a couple of bills that we have featured here on the podcast that includes the colorado wilderness act sponsored by congresswoman. Diana get as well as the colorado outdoor recreation economy act or core. Act from congressman. Goose and senator michael bennet but the main reason for the secretary's visit was looking at how to fix the bureau of land management headquarters remember. That's the building in grand junction colorado. Where a grand whopping three employees who were at the old headquarters in washington. Dc eventually moved after former interior secretary. David bernhardt effectively and intentionally broke the agency. Even today there are fewer than forty people working in that grand junction office. There are about eighty open and unfilled positions. So something is not not working here at all and the solution is a pretty obvious one to us. You just have to admit the whole thing was a failure. It was designed to force career expertise out. And it's time to rebuild the agency headquarters back in washington. Now it's understandable. That folks like senator bennett senator. John hickenlooper want to keep jobs in colorado. Even if it's just forty of them so secretary holland came out to grand junction to listen to be element -ployees to listen to members of the community before she decides what to do next and of course the bureau still doesn't have a senate confirmed director has not had one for four and a half years now but we are finally getting close. The senate energy and natural resources committee last week deadlocked ten ten on the nomination of tracy stone manning to run the bureau that vote said it to the senate which voted fifty to forty nine on tuesday afternoon to move her nomination to the senate floor head back one episode for the background on the really absurd character assassination campaign that is being waged against tracy. But i think there's another takeaway here that everyone needs to consider. The fight here truly is not over what tracy stone manning did or did not do with earth. I thirty years ago. The record there is clear. nothing new has come out..

President Biden issued an executive order to review that move and his administration is under pressure to restore their boundaries. NPR's Kirk Siegler reports. Former congresswoman from New Mexico. Deb Holland is the nation's first indigenous interior secretary. And in the four Corners region, there's a lot of anticipation among tribes about her official visit to the Bears Ears National Monument. When President Obama designated it giving it enhanced federal land protections. He cited its cultural significance. Land is rich with cliff dwellings, pictographs as well, A sacred camping and burial grounds. This is our chapel. This is our place of worship. Had Gonzalez Rogers runs the Bears ears inter tribal coalition representing five sovereign tribes. Ah, Holland alone doesn't have the authority to restore the monument's original boundaries. But he sees her visit as symbolic in FAC in the first kind of the world. I think it's less than 30 days of Secretary Holland on being in office, she has had more engagement more action than the previous 1300 days.

You know, happened to us here during the last administration elimination of 85% of the Bears ears National Monument, the Keystone XL pipeline, President Obama formally protected the Bears Ears Monument on Utah land considered sacred to native people.

Unlike with previous administrations, there's no learning curve with Secretary Holland. There's always such high turnover within government entities that you know, sometimes that plays as an excuse. And as a government entity, there should not be any excuse for the trust responsibility that you hold to the tribes for the nest purse That trust responsibility is at the heart of a new deal brokered by a Republican congressman to remove four dams on the Snake River just downstream from here.

"President joe. Biden's cabinet is filling up gradually so far nine of the twenty. Three positions have been filled but the remaining nominees are not going as smoothly as the biden administration may have hoped yesterday. Committee vote for near a tendon. Biden's pick to lead the office of management and budget were delayed amid opposition from republicans and democratic. Senator joe manchin representative deb haaland of new mexico nominee for secretary of interior has faced tough questioning especially from senators in fossil fuel dependent states and california attorney general havi et cetera biden's nominee for health and human services secretary is coming under fire for his stance on abortion and healthcare sung men. Kim is the white house reporter for the washington post and she joins us now. How are you sung men. Good thanks for having me. so let's get started. Republicans escalated their attacks against deb. Haaland during confirmation hearings this week. Senator joe manchin from west virginia Finally said he would support her. But why was he hesitant. What was all the back and forth about holland so obviously for an in congresswoman deb holland The president biden nominated a really strong progressive to lead the department of the interior. As we know this is also a groundbreaking nomination the first native american to hold a cabinet position but because of her liberal views. She really did come under a lot of criticism from republicans You saw a lot of republicans. Kind of Resurface some of her old tweets that she had said about republicans and read the back to her at our confirmation hearings and she was going to. She was always going to probably come under more scrutinizing confirmation process than other That perhaps some of the other candidates but The reason why senator joe manchin particularly what his role in this and what he eventually said yesterday was so critical was that he played a key. Role in you know potentially tanking. Another obama nominee the narrative the director or the nominee to lead the office of management and budget and earlier this week. He indicated to reporters that he was undecided on deb. Hollywood for secretary of the interior. A lot of that was because her hearing hadn't been held mansion does co chair the committee that held a deb. Deb holland's confirmation hearings so it does seem he was just trying to kind of keep an open mind before she had a full airing of reviews and questions from senators from both sides of the aisle but but senator manchin did come out yesterday in full support of her so we don't expect her to see We don't expect any actual confirmation problems with a deb holler at this point near santa and on the other hand is a different story. Definitely definitely and we saw this happening a last week when again senator manchin and a little bit of a surprise statement i would say Announced he would oppose tandon for various reasons. But you know pointed to some of our more Intemperate tweets that she had sent You know in the last several years targeting republican lawmakers and that really mattered because we are divided in a fifty fifty senate. So you know even if you get all democrats onboard with the nominee If you have all republicans opposing that means you need to bring in vice president. Kamla harris to break the tie so with joe manchin saying no that means you needed at least one republican to come forward and say yes. I will vote to support near tandon but we started looking at some of the usual suspects for republican senators who may cross the island support her. Such as mitt romney of utah and senator susan collins of maine. They both said earlier. This week that That they would not vote to confirm a narrow tandon. We are all watching. Senator lisa murkowski a potential republican of alaska but we are also watching potential Another democratic senator who may have issues with near tana's domination that's cureton cinema a democrat from arizona. She's been very coy about whether she would support her. Not and democratic leaders aren't even sure where she's thinking so for those reasons. A pair of key committee votes on near tandon were pulled yesterday which is never a good sign for nomination. Tom vilsek secretary of agriculture has already been approved. But what's interesting here is you know. Is that bernie. Sanders actually joined six republicans in voting against him. What do we know about bernie. Sanders is decision to do that. It was a really interesting move. I mean obviously we saw secretary. Bill sacks serve the same role for eight years under the obama administration and he sailed through his confirmation process back in january of two thousand nine. I actually did talk to senator sanders directly about this after the vote and he says look. I have no problem with tom. You know. I think that he will. I think that he will Do a good job at but he wanted someone who would be more aggressive in supporting family. Farm kind of farms that are in vermont and also Be it'd be a little bit more aggressive and taking on big corporate agriculture entities and. That was kind of a senator. Sanders is is a main objection to of those back a nominee. We know that We've got many more cabinet positions to be filled The president trump's Impeachment hearing did take up some time. But we're back on track now. Right i mean. How long do we expect the rest of this to take. We are definitely a back on track. I did a tally earlier this week. Before this kind of a confirmation blitz began and at this point You know biden earlier this week. As as of monday president biden had had. I believe seven cabinet nominees confirmed which was slower in pace in terms of his two immediate predecessors at this point in their presidencies barack obama had a dozen cabinet officials in place. President trump had about nine and place. But you're right. A lot of that was delayed by the impeachment trial and was also delayed partly because because of the the unusual dynamic of the senate that it just took some time for committees to get organized figure out who is chairman how the powers were going to be divided between the two parties and just get them up and running but we have had a stream of a steady stream of confirmation. This week we had linda. Thomas greenfield as the ambassador to the united nations. Obviously we talked about secretary. Tom bill sack and a were on the verge of confirming jennifer granholm to secretary of energy this week. So we're right back on track for the most part. It'll be a couple more weeks before everyone else's confirmed but they seem to be back on pace sung men. Kim is white house reporter for the washington post. Thanks so much.

She would be the first Native American Cabinet member in the nation's history. Her nomination by President Biden has also been criticized by oil State Republicans because of her stated opposition issues such as to fracking in the Dakota access pipeline. Ecuadorian reports from Fresno. The history being made by Deb Holland's nomination was hailed by all on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, even those who are skeptical of her policy views The special nature of the moment was evident as the New Mexico congresswoman introduced herself to the committee and the nation. I spent summers in the Sita, or small village on Laguna Pueblo, the location of my grandparent's traditional home. It was there that I learned about my culture from my grandmother by watching her cook and by participating in traditional feast days and ceremonies, it was in the cornfields with my grandfather, where I learned the importance of water. And protecting our resource is where I gained a deep respect for the Earth Committee chair, Joe Manchin outlined the immensity of the task. The Interior Department manages 500 million acres of land. 1/5 of the entire country. The 70,000 employees oversee Parks Monuments Wildlife refuge because dams, reservoirs and canals. It also supervisors mineral resource lands that produced 20% of the nation's energy. Citing previous statements Deb Holland had made about fossil fuel production. Wyoming Senator John Barrasso, the committee's ranking member, set the theme which Republican members came back to repeatedly. Oil production in federal lands and oil pipelines, especially the Dakota access pipeline. By signing an executive order to ban all new oil coal gas leases on federal lands. The president is taking a sledgehammer to Western states economies. Ban on federal leasing could result in 33,000 workers losing their jobs in Wyoming. Representative Hollins home state of Wyoming, 62,000 workers stand to lose their jobs. Holland also faced questions over her appearance at protests of the Dakota access pipeline in North Dakota before she was elected to Congress in 2018. Holland said she went there in solidarity with Native American tribes and other water protectors, who felt they were not consulted adequately before the multi state pipeline was approved.

Well, I generally almost daily get requests from teachers that are have been Requested to to start Native American components in their classroom. In a lot of times, they're lost his AST far as resource is and where to go. And so I pretty common question is, you know what kind of Native American books would be appropriate, which ones are accepted by native sources are considered authentic. By native authors and So I would kind of off the cuff answer people as those questions would come in. And over time, I kind of decided it was a good Opportunity to create a list of books that are great level specific for teachers. You know, it's interesting that we are speaking at an interesting moment. I mean, on the one hand You know, there's as we said, this historic opportunity here that Deb Holland will be the first Native American to lead a Cabinet department and the Department of Interior. Um Does this have some meaning to you to see her if confirmed in this position Well, yeah, it's it's really important and it's It's great that Deb Holland has been nominated to run interior because you know she will. She'll oversee the management and conservation of the nation's federal lands. Park's natural resource is she's going to oversee branches like the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Indian Affairs. These are entities that Historically have been very antagonistic towards native people on D have not had a lot of Comprehension of, you know, indigenous connection to the land. Soto have a native person running that agency and all of the the umbrella to change agencies under that. Is really telling. And I think having a native American in that position at a Cabinet level was a great decision on the part of the Biden administration. Well, you know, now I'm gonna really put you on the spot and put you in a terrible position. I'm gonna ask you. Which of some of the books on the list are your favorite? I have kind of Ah, few favorites. Obviously, a lot of people are aware of standing rock. There's a lot of pushback to pipelines going through treaty lands. And so there's a really great book called We Are. Water Protectors. By Carol Lindstrom. That's Kind of geared towards kindergarten through third grade. Another one written by a native kid that was actually there, Rosalind Tutor, he wrote a book called Young Water Protectors. Was a really great ones to kind of see through native eyes. Why These types of environmental issues are concerns for for our native people. Lastly, there's a book called Pipe Stone, My Life as an in an Indian boarding school. That's for high school age. You know, I'm sure you're aware the boarding school Issues that went on for about 100 years. It's a great view from someone who was at those schools and how native culture and language was beaten out of so many tens and tens of thousands of young little native boys and girls after the reservation period commenced. I've probably read over 1000 native books in my life, and there's There's thousands more to go so It's It's really It's really beautiful to see people recognizing indigenous people and culture that is Aaron care appellate creator of Tribal Nations maps. We're talking here specifically about Children's books that focus on the Native Nations experience. Erin careful it Thank you so much for joining us and and happy New Year once again. Happy New Year to you. And thanks again and be well, Everyone. Thank you. Mm hmm. And finally today, you know you've heard those ads. You might even have to come to one of them. I'm talking about the big push for new gym memberships. It's usually right now. And that's because getting fit is one of the most common New Year's resolutions. But this year, many gyms are closed because of the pandemic. So what are the alternatives for people who are resolved to get fit in 2021? We reached out to Jennifer Walters for some ideas. She is a certified personal trainer and health coach, and she also co hosts the fit bottom Girls podcast Jennifer Walters. Welcome. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for having me So first of all, how has this experience been for you? You know, quarantining and I know you've got little ones at home. How? How is this experience Been for you? Just just doing your thing trying to stay fit and keep up with your clients and so forth during all this? Oh, goodness. It has been something, you know, I think like everyone Our lives have just been completely switched around and You know, you used to kind of maybe have some sort of semblance of control over your day or your schedule. And now with things just are so different. I used to love to go to the gym. And that was like my social time. And I had, you know, Mom, friends and You know, I had other people to kind of help push me and toe. I don't know, Work out harder and try harder and try new things. And now it's like, okay, you know, kind of Ah Ah, one woman show a little bit. I have actually been like designing my own workouts at home, and we turned our garage, which only had Junkin inured stiff. Anyway, we turn that into a gym. So now I'm able to go there and work out and in some ways it's been No kind of There has been some some benefits as Muchas I I do miss going to the gym. There's been some benefits for like me and my husband to go out and get creative. Let's talk about more about that. Like how how What are some things that people can do to maintain their fitness? If they can't go to the gym? Or maybe they are. They are afraid to go to the gym right now. I mean, that is the case for some, For some people feel it just isn't the safest environment because it's it's a closed environment because there's you know. People are sweating, and it's hard to social distance even if their gyms are open. So what are some ideas for maintaining that fitness if you can't or don't want to go to a gym? So I think now is actually a really, really interesting and great time to not just look at workouts is a way to get fit, but as a way to give yourself self care. So if you are really stressed out, then use that as a zoo. Reason to maybe look for something that's a little bit more relaxing and work out. So, you know, investing yoga mat and try. There's like a zillion and you know, half aps and websites and YouTube channels and stuff, you know, Try some yoga. You don't need that much space. A good feel good activity. Maybe look at doing some high intensity workouts, whether it's with dumbbells, whether its bodyweight exercises going for a run. I like to get out of my house and I do sprints. I just find a set distance between you know, like to telephone poles or a couple houses or somewhere else. On a trail and I will just run that sprint rest, you know, for 20 or 30 seconds and run that sprint again, and just kind of tired myself out on get a really, really big Mood booster now really? And then I kind of feel like, Oh my gosh, You know, I went out and really were hard and then that I'm proud of myself for the day. Let's talk about the motivation problem As we mentioned in a typical year, new gym memberships will peak in January..
