Today on Culture Clique we visit with James Reidy, Associate Profesor in Recreation, Tourism and Therapeutic Recreation at Winona State University. James gave a talk at the University on How The Connected Community paves the way to sustainability; an earthway perspective. James examines the historical & economic conflict between the people of the First Nation and the European Nation, as well as the road to technology vs spirituality. James was given a Lokata name and was also invited into a warrior society. Today he gives us a unique look at sustainability from an indi nation perspective. Stay tuned after the talk for a quick interview with James to delve a little bit further on his ties to the Lakota, how to preserve culture and sustainability.
