Universities profit off land taken from Indigenous people

Season 2024 Episode 171 | 7m 15s

There's a new spotlight on some universities and whether they should be helping Native American students more than they are now. It follows a news investigation that found some schools have long profited from land essentially taken from Native American tribes and leased to industries like oil and gas. Stephanie Sy reports on the impact of this legacy on students for our series, Rethinking College.
