7 Generations Radio: Reed Brown Sr., Oglala Lakota Herbal Healer–Feb 10, 2016

Host:  Joe Gray

Guest:  Reed Brown Sr., Oglala Lakota Herbal Healer, with Rob Shaw, Genealogical Researcher and relative of Reed Brown.

Discussion:  Lakota spiritual beliefs, herbal medicine, native traditions, mineral rights, ancestry, generational change, matriarchy, community, sweat lodge, education, drugs, the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.  I think you will find this audio very interesting and insightful.  We were honored to have Mr. Reed speak to us.

The audio is approximately 30 minutes long.  Unfortunately the remaining 30 minutes failed to record and the audio cuts off midstream.  We hope to have Mr. Reed back again to continue the discussion.  The show was broadcast on WSHC, Shepherdstown, from the campus of Shepherd University on Feb 10, 2016.
