Standing in Two Worlds: Native American College Diaries

Illustration by Rachel Sender for APM Reports

Native American college students take listeners inside the quest to earn degrees. U.S government boarding schools were once used to erase Indigenous culture and force assimilation. But in the 21st century, education opens opportunities. In this documentary, students take the microphone to share their stories as they strive to use a college education to support themselves, and their communities, without losing sight of who they are.

This audio documentary from APM Reports will air on Friday August 26th at 10 AM and 8 PM here on KCPW 88.3 FM.
