Monday, September 17, 2012 - Do You Vote Red, Blue, or Other?:
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:
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:
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
Thursday, September 20, 2012 - Ovarian Cancer Awareness:
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:
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).
