On this episode of the Confluence Story Gathering Podcast we dive into the current cultural discussion on monuments and who tells the stories behind monuments, to ask how do we memorialize our history today? Three Indigenous women who live in the Pacific Northwest joined us for this discussion, Bobbie Conner, Deana Dartt, and Emily Washines.
About the Speakers:
