Description: Last week, the Onondaga Nation announced a major land back victory. The nation has recovered more than 1,000 acres of forest lands. The Interior Department says it is on the largest returns of land to an Indigenous nation by a state. The Onondaga Nation's general counsel Joe Heath gives us the details. On Dec. 22, 2021, Danny Wilber walked out of prison. He served 18-years for a murder he did not commit. In 2005, Wilber was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide and was sentenced to life in prison. Wilber says he knew he was innocent and spent years proving it. Ultimately, he and a small team worked with forensic experts to prove his innocence. His partner, Lacey Kinnart, joins Danny to talk about the treacherous process.
