First Voices Indigenous Radio host Tiokasin Ghosthorse, Lakota from Cheyenne River in South Dakota, has spent decades exposing the truths that the mainstream feared. The WBAI broadcast in New York is carried nationwide and online.
John Kane, Mohawk, at Let's Talk Native in New York describes this week how Canada has downplayed the genocide in residential schools, referring to it as "cultural genocide." Native children were kidnapped, tortured, raped and murdered in those schools. The cemeteries and unmarked and hidden graves reveal the horror suffered by those children in Canada, the US and Australia residential schools that were responsible for genocide.
In Northern California, James Browneagle at Tribal Voices Radio exposes what the other media ignores, including topics from the Mohawk Nation News and the ongoing resistance to Sen. John McCain's copper mine on sacred Apache land in Arizona.
Listen to the upcoming program on Make No Bones About It in Washington state on Traditional Mentoring with host Raven Redbone. Lakota Chief Arvol Lookiing Horse, 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe, has been a regular guest on his program.

GLENN APARICIO PARRY Author of "Original Thinking: A Radical Revisioning of Time, Humanity and Nature." The book delves into the evolution of Western thought to recover the living roots of wisdom that can correct the imbalances in our modern worldview. Inspired by groundbreaking dialogues that Parry organized between Native American elders and leading-edge Western scientists to explore the underlying principles of the cosmos, this book offers a radical revisioning of how we think. Asking questions such as, Is it possible to come up with an original thought?, What does it mean to be human?, and How has our thinking created our world today?, Parry challenges us to consider many of our most basic assumptions.

LTN 6/7/15; A full house this week; Matt Hill, Ed Schindler, Paul Delaronde, James Gray and Kahetiio Gray piled in for a great show. We take on Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Report and their downgrading the obvious genocide that Canadian and U.S. residential/boarding school represented to "Cultural Genocide" as well as down playing the deaths and destruction they committed. We discuss the attempts to whitewash indigenous issues at the UN and the misconception of "buried weapons." With James and Kahetiio in studio, we discuss the Ieweras Gray Foundation's benefit concert coming up on August 22, 2015. We feature two of that event's performers with classics from Murray Porter and "Indian Car" from Keith Secola.Tribal Voices Radio James Browneagle

Support Native American radio hosts
These Native radio hosts work really hard and do ground-breaking work, with little or no financial rewards, often paying out of their own pockets to keep going. I'm happy to see others supporting them. There's a great deal of cutting edge radio news that could be shared as programming, but of course many of the local stations censor so many issues, either because of local pressure or their owners, or because of control by their advertisers, like big coal and big oil.
Tiokasin took the lead in exposing the abuse by the US Border Patrol agents of Tohono O'odham, which continues, along with uranium mining on Indian lands. He also had live shows when we were in Bolivia at the Mother Earth gathering, and many other regions. Mohawk John Kane is fearless in his exposures. James Browneagle stays current on what he exposes from his homeland in northern Calif. Raven Redbone has maintained a spiritual focus and continues to honor the traditional teachings and elders in the northwest.
