Native Circles Art by M. Nazbah (Diné)

In 2021, Farina King (Diné) and Sarah Newcomb (Tsimshian) started the podcast Native Circles to focus on Native American and Indigenous histories from Indigenous voices and lived experiences. They talk each month with historians and intellectuals committed to working with and for Indigenous communities to share Indigenous stories.
