National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition in Mpls
The recent discovery of children buried in unmarked graves in residential schools in Canada has prompted calls to action in both Canada and United States. We have been looking specifically at Indigenous people in Minnesota whose families have been affected by boarding schools. Michael Lyons is the producer of Boozhoo Nana Boozhoo and he recently talked with Maggie Montgomery about his grandparent's experience.
We also checked in with a MN based nonprofit - The National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition - and talked with executive director Christine Diindiisi McCleave.
