Criminal

At the turn of the century, Carry Nation was “America’s foremost lady hellraiser” and "the apostle of reform violence.” In her own words, she was "a bulldog running along at the feet of Jesus, barking at what He doesn't like."  

 

We liked her hatchet pins so much, we thought we'd try to make some of our own. They say "CRIMINAL" on the handle. Get yours here

 
 
Thanks to everyone at the Kansas State Historical Society, and to Maya Goldberg-Safir.

As long as 2,500 years ago, Native Americans placed the bones of the dead in giant mounds of earth in the shape of animals. The Effigy Mounds National Monument was created to protect the mounds - and the bones inside. But in 2011, a new superintendent discovered that the remains of 41 Native Americans had disappeared.
 

In this episode, we use the term "Native American" because the story refers to legislation that uses that term. The National Park Service now uses “American Indian”.


This episode contains language that may not be suitable for everyone.
