What's It Like to Be An Indigenous American?

For this conversation we're talking to a panel of Indigenous Americans about race, inclusion and equity.  Milwaukee is an Ojibwa word meaning "the good land."  Ours, like that of so many other cities, is a name that proudly boasts Indigenous American influence, but most of us know very little about the people who originally inhabited the US.  We know less about their descendants who now make up little more than 1% of the nations population.

We have the honor of speaking to a group of Indigenous Americans about their experiences living in the America we all know today.  We'll ask them about the racism they've faced, the commonly held misconceptions about their culture, and what inclusion means to them.
