Andy is also a lifelong musician who sang in choirs and played classical violin in school orchestras before graduating to playing keyboards in several rock bands. He currently enjoys teaching himself to play guitar. Growing up in a small town situated within striking distance of the great outdoors has given Andy a keen interest in ecology and the natural world. He is a writer of fiction and recently finished a novel called “Arran,” which is an attempt to make sense of the age we live in — particular the ecological and climate crises — through the eyes of its five main characters. After moving about from place to place, including several years as an immigrant in Toronto, Canada, Andy is now back in his home town of Perth, Scotland.Production Credits:Tiokasin Ghosthorse (Lakota), Host and Executive ProducerLiz Hill (Red Lake Ojibwe), ProducerTiokasin Ghosthorse, Studio Engineer and Audio Editor, WIOX 91.3 FM, Roxbury, NYMusic Selections:1.

Host Tiokasin Ghosthorse talks with Bryan Nurnberger, President and Founder of Simply Smiles, an organization that builds villages of foster homes for indigenous children. The Simply Smiles model of foster care is a new and progressive one that provides a desperately needed, scalable and culturally appropriate response for Native children in Oaxaca, Mexico and on the Cheyenne River Lakota Reservation in South Dakota. In 2002, Bryan was a professional mountain climbing guide recovering from a climbing injury when he began volunteering at a Mexican orphanage. His experiences there inspired him to create Simply Smiles. Bryan was given the Lakota name “Cante Waste Wicasa” which means “Kind Hearted Man.” Backed by tribal elders, the tribal council, and the local community, the Simply Smiles Children’s Village on the Cheyenne River Reservation is serving the immediate needs of the most-at-risk Lakota children, but also scaffolding a brighter future by guiding today’s most vulnerable children to become tomorrow’s strongest and most influential adults. Simply Smiles children’s villages foster leaders, role models, and citizens of the world. Bryan says: “Simply Smiles has an important role to play in reaching a brighter future. But when the success story is written it should not be a story of this organization. It should be the story of how Native children wanted something different, something better, and with a little help, worked to achieve it. An organization like ours should be felt not seen. We should be a wind at your back.” More information at https://www.simplysmiles.org/.Production Credits:Tiokasin Ghosthorse (Lakota), Host and Executive ProducerLiz Hill (Red Lake Ojibwe), ProducerTiokasin Ghosthorse, Studio Engineer and Audio Editor, WIOX 91.3 FM, Roxbury, NYMusic Selections:1.

On this week’s episode, “First Voices Radio” digs deep into its 28-year-old Archive and brings listeners other interpretations and observations surrounding the American holiday known as “Thanksgiving.”Part 1:This interview was first aired in 2005. Robert Jensen is an emeritus professor in the School of Journalism at the University of Austin and a founding board member of the Third Coast Activist Resource Center. In his writing and teaching, Dr. Jensen draws on a variety of critical approaches to media and power. He has addressed questions of race through a critique of white privilege and institutionalized racism. Dr. Jensen and Tiokasin discuss the history of Thanksgiving, based on themes in his book, “The Heart of Whiteness: Confronting Race, Racism and White Privilege” (City Lights, 2005).Part 2:This is a special broadcast of the late John Trudell’s “Thanksgiving Day Address.” Although Trudell's remarks are from 1980, listeners will be amazed at how his observations have stood the test of time and still ring very true to today. The names of U.S. politicians that Trudell mentions have changed over the years but the issues that Native people faced then and now remain the same. John Trudell (1946-2015) has been identified as a poet, a fighter for Native American rights, an agitator, and lots of other things. But if you were to have asked him which of these descriptions best suits him he would have refused to be pinned down. “Actually I don’t consider myself to be any of those things. They’re things that I do…but they’re parts of me. They’re not the total.” Indeed, Trudell was the complex sum of all that he saw, endured and accomplished in his 69 years, a time in which he experienced more than most people might in several lifetimes.

Mayor Pedro Edmunds Paoa is one of the most important Indigenous leaders in Chile. The son of a prominent Rapa Nui politician, he lived in the United States for many years. Since 1990 Mayor Paoa has been a key figure in the life of the Island. His government program was called Plan Amor and given its coincidences with the 20/30 agenda of the United Nations, it was chosen as a mirror territory by the organization. With the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, Mayor Pedro Edmunds Paoa decided to close Rapa Nui to tourism and invoke the TAPU which is an ancestral call to order and unrestricted respect for the orders of the authority. Thanks to that decision he managed to stop the advance of the coronavirus when they had only three cases were detected. Mayor Paoa’s formula for attacking the virus has been applauded around the world. His direct style has placed him as one of the most credible politicians in Chile. With the social explosion, he became part of those who sought the creation of a new constitution. For the first time, he managed to unite Indigenous mayors in an association. Mayor Paoa’s word is respected in Rapa Nui, where he is preparing to go to a new term as Mayor.Manuel Rozental is a long-time Colombian activist, researcher and community organizer. Manuel’s been involved with grassroots political organizing with youth, Indigenous communities, and urban and rural social movements for four decades. He delivers an update and analysis on what’s happening in Chile and other parts of Latin America, as it concerns Indigenous people. Tiokasin also talks with Manuel about Chileans overwhelmingly approving, at the polls, the doing away of the Constitution drafted and approved under the military regime of Augusto Pinochet and gave the green light to the creation of a Constitutional Assembly.According to official data by Chile's official electoral body, with 45.24% of the vote counted, 77.85% percent of the voters checked the Approval box, an overwhelming figure in contrast to the 22.15% percent who chose to legitimize the current Constitution, which was supported by a majority of right-wing parties. Chileans also overwhelmingly chose a constitutional convention as the method to create a new constitution.Also, thousands of Chilean citizens cast their votes in 65 countries. Argentina, the United States, Spain, Canada, and Australia were the nations most represented. More than 80% of voters overseas supported approval for a new constitution. This is the first time in the South American nation’s history that citizens are asked whether or not they want a new Magna Carta. Citizens also voted to create a Constitutional Convention to draft the new fundamental law. Manuel also shows the political relationship Chile has with the U.S. and role of the current president-elect Joe Biden.Production Credits:Tiokasin Ghosthorse (Lakota), Host and Executive ProducerLiz Hill (Red Lake Ojibwe), ProducerTiokasin Ghosthorse, Studio Engineer and Audio Editor, WIOX 91.3 FM, Roxbury, NYMusic Selections:1.

Host Tiokasin Ghosthorse talks with Chief Terrance Paul, Co-Chair and Fisheries Lead for the Assembly of Nova Scotia Mi’kmaw Chiefs. Chief Paul and Tiokasin discuss the current situation involving the Mi’kmaw’s treaty rights to fish (in this particular case, gather lobsters) and the violence — imposed by a small and extremely racist minority — that has erupted and escalated since mid-September 2020 causing damage to Mi’kmaw property and endangering Mi’kmaw lives. Chief Paul brings listeners up to date on all of the latest developments and the Mi’kmaw peoples’ efforts to work with the Canadian federal government to put a stop to the harassment and violence. People — not just Native people — all over the world are watching what is happening and lending support to the Mi’kmaw people in their struggle to maintain their treaty rights.  Chief Paul has held the position of Chief of Membertou First Nation since 1984. During this time, Chief Paul has guided his community and administration into one of the most open and efficient Native communities in Canada. He has served on numerous boards and task forces, and is one of the original founders of the National Capital Corporation Association (NACCA), which started out as seven Aboriginal corporations and has grown to 50 Aboriginal financial institutions across Canada. Chief Paul started his career with the Boston Indian Council, where he received his background training in Finance and Management. He began as a Job Placement Officer and was quickly promoted to Director of Finance before being named president of the council. Upon returning home to Membertou, Chief Paul worked as the Economic Development Officer and Band Manager before being elected as Chief. Chief Paul has achieved many accomplishments in his role as Chief, including doubling the land base for the Membertou Reserve. He also assisted Donald Marshall, Jr., in his successful Supreme Court defense of the Mi'kmaq Treaty Rights to fish, which resulted in approximately $600 million in the Atlantic for the Mi'kmaq. In 2012, Chief Paul was inducted into Junior Achievement Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame recognizing his accomplishments and contributions to Nova Scotia.  Second Interview:  Tiokasin talks with Antonia Perre, a clinical herbalist, gardener and artist who was born and raised in New York City.

Host Tiokasin Ghosthorse begins the hour talking with Matthew O’Neill, a musical artist who lives in Upstate New York. Matthew's latest project is “Music for The Mother,” the debut album featuring the Ancestral Teyuna Music from the Sierra Nevada De Santa Marta in Colombia. The album is produced by Matthew’s record label, “Underwater Panther Coalition," a label committed to supporting Indigenous rights and celebrating ancestral musical traditions by releasing projects based on time-honored traditions of gratitude, appreciation, respect and reverence for Mother Earth. The album is particularly special as it's the first record of its kind and first time a female from Teyuna has ever been recorded. Each track is recorded by the spiritual leaders and promotes healing and cultural integrity through song and ceremony. This release serves as an important defining moment of preservation for these Indigenous peoples of the mountain region. Underwater Panther Coalition shares 50 percent of profits with the Indigenous groups affiliated with each project. For more information: https://www.underwaterpanthercoalition.com/.
