What It Means To Be An American
Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Today we're discussing what it means to be an American from the perspective of two groups: Native Americans and Puerto Rican's. Virginia's Pamunkey Tribe was granted federal recognition in 2015, and six more tribes in Virginia received federal recognition this January. We'll talk to Pamunkey Chief Robert Gray about their desire to be self-sufficient, which includes plans to build Virginia's first casino. We'll also talk to Politico reporter Dan Diamond about the ongoing controversy between the Trump Administration and Native Americans that cuts to the core of their identity. And later on we'll discuss the state of Puerto Rico and the struggle to rebuild an American community. Tune in at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM.
