We capture performance from Sundog at the Yukon International Storytelling Festival and hear from group leader Phil Gatensby, and then Nyla Klugie about native struggle and resistence, also Angela and Becky talk about native existence in Canada from their perspectives as 15year old native youth. Deep in Indian Country at Wounded Knee we hear about native reality from Catka Win - Dorothy Sunbear, local rapper Ta-Sina Tanka - Big Robe drops some knowledge and celebrated rap artist / movie actor Litefoot performs at the Native Voice Film Festival 2004.
