In the second half of BNC, two young brothers, Lakota men, Thorne and Wakinyan LaPointe returned last week as AIM-WEST delegates in their fourth year at the annual UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UN PFII) 16th session. They discuss their global work/participation gained over the recent years at the UN PFII bringing to the UN floor a directive to initiate a study on racism in sports and the use of Indigenous peoples as MASCOTS in public sports. Other topics they discuss are the Human Rights Defenders and Leonard Peltier, and how they're organizing a global, MNI KI WAKAN, WATER IS SACRED, Indigenous People’s Decade of Water Summit scheduled for August 1-2, 2017.
