Interview with WNYC - Brian Lehrer Show

#Airing LIVE Thursday, March 4th, 8-9pm ET, Join the national conversation with WNYC host Brian Lehrer as the Biden/Harris administration starts its work. America, Are We Ready for the First 100 Days? President Biden's nomination of Rep. Deb Haaland (D, NM) to be Secretary of the Interior would put a Native American (Laguna Pueblo) in charge of the Bureau of Indian Affairs for the first time ever and perhaps mark a new era for the relationship between the federal government and American Indians.  

Is it time for a new relationship between the U.S. government and America's Indian nations? This week, Brian is joined by:

Joy Harjo (Muscogee Nation) U.S. Poet Laureate, performer and writer, editor of When the Light of the World Was Subdued, Our Songs Came Through: A Norton Anthology of Native Nations Poetry (W. W. Norton & Company, 2020), who has a new album "I Pray For My Enemies" - out tomorrow.
