What is like when your love for your land sets you apart? Today, we hear from the son of the Chief of the Winnemem Wintu. Then, we go behind the scenes of our podcast about them — “A Prayer for Salmon.” We talk with host Judy Silber about what it was like to report the story of the tribe over 5 years ago.
