Talk/Public Affairs

With Roya Taylor


Join Host Roy Taylor (Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma) on Wednesday, August 12, 2020, at 1:00 P.M. CDT as he welcomes back to the program, ROBERT PILOT (Ho-Chunk/WI), and for the first time, LINDSEY WEST (Ho-Chunk/WI).

Join them in KFAI Fresh Air Radio "Studio Stronghold", as they talk about schools re-opening and student, teacher safety in the St. Paul and Minneapolis Public Schools.

Robert Pilot is a secondary school teacher in the St. Paul Public Schools for several decades. In that role he has taught and mentored numerous Indigenous/Native students who are now valued and contributing leaders, advocates and community members.

He is also the founder and operator of, "NATIVE ROOTS RADIO NETWORK', a national radio broadcasting/podcasting enterprise born out of his time at Standing Rock, ND in 2016-17.

Lindsey West is a former St. Paul Harding High School student and accomplished athlete, Athena Award winner. She is now a Minneapolis Public Schools teacher.

Together we'll hear from them, their thoughts on the recent decision by St. Paul and Minneapolis Public Schools to "return" to classes this Fall.

Be sure to listen in for their observations and thoughts of insight and inspiration.
