This St. Patrick’s Day we explore the historic links between Ireland and Native Americans – from mutual aid during times of crisis to their shared battle against colonization and the extended trauma that comes with it. We also preview the new show “Aaron Power! The Musical” premiering today that tells the story of a Navajo man seeking out his Irish heritage.
