"Notice the ways Native people are achieving and surviving." - Derek DeRosier
In Glacier National Park, Misha learns about what it means to be indigenous to a place from Derek DeRosier, Tom Rodgers and David Treuer. She learns about the Blackfeet Nation tribe and their experience with Glacier. Derek then leads her on a tour of the east side of the park, to Two Medicine Valley, and tells her how his dad fought to become a park vendor. Misha also talks to Vivian Wang about what it takes to become a park ranger, and how hard it can be for people of color.
Glacier is the land of the Blackfeet, Salish, Pend d’Oreille and Kootenal tribes. Visit native-land.ca/ to learn more about these tribes and the land you live on.
