Tues - 12/10: Black Market Eagles:
The Eagle population is on the rise...and so is their value on

negotiate a new treaty.  Is it time for all tribes to
renegotiate their treaties?  Guests include Canadian Minister
of Indian Affairs Ron Irwin and Musqueam Chief Joe Becker.

Tues - 12/17: Women in Tribal Politics:
Tribes throughout North America are still hanging onto
traditional systems of running their affairs.  But do these
systems discriminate against women?

Wed - 12/18: Homeless for the Holidays:
Could you imagine being alone, without a home during this
holiday season.  It's a reality for many natives.  What can be
done to ensure the homeless are not left out in the cold?

Thurs - 12/19: Pollution in the Everglades:
The runoff from farming pesticides and insecticides is causing
concern among environmentalists in the Florida Everglades.  But
farming is big business, for tribes as well.  Will the two sides
reach a middle ground? Special report by NAC correspondent Tanya

Fri - 12/20: Home for the Holidays:
Many native communities celebrate the Christmas season with
community events.  This helps to create a healthier sense of
