As a part of its ongoing Meet Native America series, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian invites tribal leaders, cultural figures, and other interesting and accomplished Native individuals to introduce themselves and say a little about their lives and work.

The most recent interview (to my great delight) is with Jim Taylor, tribal elder and councilman for Vermont’s Elnu Abenaki: Nanabi Wokwses (Swift Fox) in Aln8ba8dwaw8gan and JT to his friends.
