One from the Supreme Court on tribal land in Oklahoma.

Another from a federal court on the Dakota Access Pipeline.

And then there's the announcement that Washington D.C.'s football team will change its name.

We talked about the significance of these changes and what they mean for Native American rights, including the Supreme Court ruling and the potential implications it will have for criminal justice on tribal land.

Our guests were Sarah Deer, professor at the University of Kansas and citizen of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation; Jonodev Chaudhuri, ambassador for the Muscogee (Creek) Nation; Kent Blansett, associate professor of Indigenous studies and history at the University of Kansas and a Cherokee, Choctaw, Shawnee, Creek, and Potawatomi descendant.

And Stephanie Fryberg, professor of psychology at the University of Michigan and member of the Tulalip tribes and Amanda Blackhorse, social worker and founder of Arizona to Rally Against Native American Mascots, and a member of the Navajo Nation joined to us talk about the significance of D.C.'s football team name change.
