On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Native Americans have served in the United States military at a higher rate than any other ethnic group –and in 2020, a memorial honoring those veterans is coming to the American Indian Museum.
The winning design, selected this week, is by Harvey Pratt, a veteran and member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes. The former forensic artist joins Kojo and the project’s curator to talk about the significance of the memorial.
