Native Report


Tune in Thursdays at 8:30 pm on PBS North! New episodes will also be posted weekly right here, YouTube, and the free PBS Video App.

On this new season we'll hear from elders and leaders in the Native American communities across the United States as we explore traditions such as wigwam, canoe and lacrosse stick making, learn about the food sovereignty movement, and hear about Native Americans who’ve left their mark on our collective history. We’ll also hear about how to live healthier lives and advice from our Elders.

Native Report is an entertaining, informative magazine style series that celebrates Native American culture and heritage, listens to tribal elders, and talks to some of the most powerful and influential leaders of Indian Country today.
