Monday, September 17, 2012 - Do You Vote Red, Blue, or Other?:
As Native American voters across the country continue to grow in numbers and show their power at the polls there's no doubt that many Indigenous communities will have major impact on both local and even national races this November. The prevailing logic is that between 90 and 95 percent of Native voters in certain parts of the country will cast their ballots for Democrats, but why? Many Native communities in rural areas share conservative values, why aren't more Native Americans voting Republican? Guests include Russ Lehman, Researcher & Adjunct Professor/ Evergreen State College & Seattle University.

Tuesday, September 18, 2012 - Poverty on Native Lands 2012:
Tavis Smiley and Cornel West, hosts of "Smiley & West," took their show on the road to highlight the plight of poor people of all races in the Poverty Tour 2.0 and it was aired live on Native Voice One last week. Maybe you heard some of the discussion on Native airwaves. Was there a moment that resonated with your Native life? What does poverty look like in your neighborhood? Are there certain factors that keep it brewing? Does the view change once you cross the reservation line? Should it be up to the government to end poverty on reservations or should the responsibility fall on our tribal nations? Guests include Manley Begay (Navajo) Faculty Chair of the Native Nations Institute at the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy at the University of Arizona.

Wednesday, September 19, 2012 - September Music Maker: Crystal Shawanda:
Four Years ago we were introduced to the rich country flare and strong vocals of Crystal Shawanda an Ojibwe from Canada's Wikwemikong Reserve. She is back with her new album "Just Like You" off of New Sun Records. The sound on the 15-track album is a maturing extension what we first heard, which means lyrics sung in deep vocal brush strokes that are reminiscent of Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette. This Juno nominated and Best New Country Artist winner at the 2009 Canadian Radio Awards influences the listener to get up and dance while providing solid moments to take in songs that remind you how sweet love can be. We invite you to join us for our September Music Maker as we visit with Crystal Shawanda.

Thursday, September 20, 2012 - Ovarian Cancer Awareness:
September marks Ovarian Cancer Awareness month and despite the educational information that is made available to women of all ages, there is still an amazingly high rate of deaths due to ovarian cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, about 22,280 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and more than 15,000 will die from this dreadful disease this year. The survival rate for a woman that has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer is much lower than other cancers, why is that? How can we encourage the women in our lives to get a screening more often? Are there preventive measures that can help women avoid getting ovarian cancer? Guest TBA.

Friday, September 21, 2012- Defending the Native American Flute:
Native American flute music is known in some of the most far-reaching places on the planet. This beautiful music has become synonymous with the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island. Has the Native American flute helped to bridge understanding about who we are as Native peoples and what we believe? Or, has it become a musical stereotype? What records need to be set straight when it comes to its role and its importance to Native people? We invite to you to join us as we visit with some of the world renown Native flute musicians. Guests include Native Musicians R. Carlos Nakai (Navajo-Ute) and Robert Mirabal (Taos Pueblo).
