Please join Laura Waterman Wittstock and Roy Taylor on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 as we review the international, national, and regional news. Lots happening in the election season where several American Indian candidates ran for seats in the primaries. At the end of July, the Senate Indian Affairs passed chairman Jon Tester's Native Language Immersion Student Achievement Act. The bill points to higher achievement levels in schools that teach in Native languages and that high schools and college attendance rates are "the norm for their peers." And black-on-white pottery has come back to the Jemez Pueblo after 300 years. Here these and other stories on the next edition of First Person Radio.
