On today's Coffee Table, we look at efforts to limit and resist the effects of colonization. We discuss how artists are tackling decolonization and how indigenous people are using techniques such as mindfulness and other practices to replace feelings of hopelessness and negative thinking. Joining us is Michael Yellow Bird, director of Indigenous Tribal Studies and professor of sociology at North Dakota State University, Hannah Gustafson, coordinator of Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships and a leader of the Southern Kenai Peninsula Resilience Coalition and Asia Freeman, the artistic director of the Bunnell Street Arts Center.
