Robert talks to Jaqueline Keeler, the person behind the “Alleged Pretendians List”. Then, he talks to Kiros Auld, whose name appeared on that controversial list. The problem? Kiros is legitimately native.

Editors Note – An earlier version of this episode stated that “the Pamunkey Indian Tribe is the only federally recognized tribe in the state of Virginia” Since publishing it was brought to our attention that The Pamunkey Indian Tribe is one of seven federally recognized tribes in the state of Virgina.
