On this edition of Native Report... We travel Lawrence, Kansas and visit the campus of Haskell Indian Nations University. We then meet several Haskell student athletes and learn how they manage their academics with sports. And we learn about the American Indian Athletic Hall of Fame also on the campus of Haskell Indian Nations University. We also learn what we can do to lead healthier lives and hear from our Elders on this edition of Native Report.
Native Report is an entertaining, informative magazine style series that celebrates Native American culture and heritage, listens to tribal elders, and talks to some of the most powerful and influential leaders of Indian Country today. The series is attractive to both a general and tribal audience, promoting understanding between cultures, tribes and reservations...offering a venue for the stories of challenge and success coming from Minnesota's tribal communities... and educating public television viewers about the culture and traditions of native citizens. Native Report is hosted by Stacey Thunder, an enrolled member of the Red Lake Nation, and co-hosted by Tadd Johnson who is an enrolled member of the Bois Forte Band of Chippewa. The Native Report season consists of fifteen episodes. Another fifteen episodes are planned next year which will include stories from Minnesota and Wisconsin native communities.
