Native and Indigenous communities in the US have long borne the pain of gun violence, from mass shootings to high rates of suicide, firearms used in gender-based violence, and police violence. Yet, many in these communities find themselves cut off from the democratic processes and a larger public awareness that would allow them to bring about changes necessary for basic public safety. To unpack a long history of mistreatment, firearms, and disenfranchisement, hosts Kelly and JJ are joined by Christine Sikowis Nobisss (Plains Cree/Saulteaux, George Gordon First Nation), a Decolonizer and a current co-chair and founder with Great Plains Action Society, President of Brady Kris Brown, and Sarina Sharma-Welsh, a San Diego Team Enough chapter member.
