    Episode 7 – The History of the First-Native American Resilience
    First Generation - One of Many

Welcome to Episode 7!  

On this episode we are joined by three guests from Chico State – Amber Noel-Camacho the Tribal Relations Specialist from the Tribal Relations Office, Vanessa Esquivido a faculty member from Multicultural Gender Studies who is an enrolled member of the Nor Rel Muk Wintu Nation and is also Hupa, and our third guest He-Lo Ramirez a Chico State student who is Machoopda Maidu and is active on campus and in the Chico community. With the help of our guests, we break through the generalizations of Native American History and through the years of resilience. We learn more about our Mechoopda tribe, and are enlightened to the issues of justice Native American communities are currently still fighting for.
