Oregon Native American Mascot Legislation and Autism Month

  Broadcast in Current Events

Call in to speak with the host

We welcome Seahdom Edmo, vice-president of the Oregon Indian Education Association (OIEA) to discuss the current Oregon legislation that looks to overturn the ban on the use of Native American mascots in Oregon schools. The Oregon state Board of Education (OBE) passed a resolution banning the use of all Native American mascots in Oregon schools in May 2012; two Oregon legislators have introduced two bills this session that will overturn the board's decision.

We also welcome Judy Wiley, executive director of the National Indian Parent Information Center, to discuss National Autism Awareness month, and other disability issues affecting Native children, families, and students.
