Tara Houska on Protecting Native Lands

Episode 51 is an extended podcast interview with native warrior woman Tara Zhaabowekwe Houska, who is Anishinabe from Couchiching First Nation in Ontario, Canada but currently lives in the United States and works as a tribal attorney. She was the former adviser to Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders on Native American Affairs. Tara joins us to talk about her time on the front lines fighting against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) and her current work against Enbridge’s Line 3.
