This morning KHUM’s Cliff Berkowitz spoke with two Humboldt State University students — Sinay Bishop, with Intertribal Student Drum, and Connor Handly, vice president of the Indigenous Peoples Student Alliance. They spoke about The Native American Activism Conference taking place MLK Day weekend (Jan 18-19) with two days of distinguished speakers from across the region, traditional dancers, and music in the evening.

The conference is in response to recent attacks on HSU’s Native programs by the administration. It’s a great example of the resiliency of indigenous people because the campus community of Native folks and allies have strengthened in the face of adversity.
