Our guest this week is Nick Estes, citizen of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, Assistant Professor of American Studies at University of New Mexico, host of the Red Nation Podcast, and author of Our History is the Future: Standing Rock Versus the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance.

We discuss the link between indigenous and black struggles in the context of the no-DAPL blockade at Standing Rock and Black Lives Matter, statue removals and vandalism in New Mexico and in New York at #OccupyCityHall, whether attacking statues of Lincoln and Grant are "justified," and the final boss: Mt. Rushmore. Finally we chat about the tensions and intersections between decolonization and revolutionary communism.

Please support some of the political prisoners we discussed in the episode:
