    To Whom It May Concern, My name is Aaron Fischer and I am a teacher at the Academy for Global Citizenship in Chicago. I am interested in using this interview in my 7th and 8th grade classes for our unit on Indigenous Peoples. Is there a way that I can gain access to the transcript and audio online? Thank you.
