In a country where land is seen as a commodity and a means to generate wealth, what does it mean when the land has been stolen? Democratizing wealth is not an easy topic, and in order to sort it out, we must rectify a past filled with enslavement, genocide, brutality, and thievery. NDN Collective defines LANDBACK "as a movement that has existed for generations with a long legacy of organizing and sacrifice to get Indigenous Lands back into Indigenous hands. The Rooted Resources Festival was held in May 2022 in Kingston, NY. The event shined a light on localizing economic power to nurture solidarity, awareness and action. It was recorded at the Rooted Resources Festival, hosted by the Good Work Institute in Kingston, NY. The Landback panelists featured were Kapi'olani A. Laronal of the Hawaiian, Haida (Eagle), Tsimsian and Filipino Nations and Tiokasin Ghosthorse of the Mnikwojou/Itazipcola Lakota Nation and moderated by Micah.

First Voices Radio digs deep into our 30-year-old archive and brings listeners another interpretation and observation surrounding the American holiday known as “Thanksgiving.” The late John Trudell’s “Thanksgiving Day Address” is from 1980 but how his observations have stood the test of time and still ring true. The names of U.S. politicians that John mentions have changed over the years but the issues that Native peoples 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 many 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 during his 69 years, a time when he experienced more than most people might in several lifetimes. More information about John Trudell can be found at https://www.johntrudell.com/.

Tiokasin welcomes three guests this week: Jonathan Gonzales, Lucas Jatobá and Christian Matute Sagbay. Jonathan was born in Tuxtepec, Oaxaca, Mexico and grew up in southern California. He has spent the last 12 years learning earth living skills and ancestral ceremonial ways with many teachers and elders, combined with participating in Indigenous, earth-based ceremonies along with a quest to connect more deeply with his ancestral lineage, which is Indigenous Taino from Puerto Rico, Chinanteco from Mexico, and African). Lucas Jatobá is a photographer and filmmaker who was born in Manaus, northern Brazil. He had been living in Rio de Janeiro since 2014, where he went to study Anthropology at the Fluminense Federal University. Lucas started working as a freelancer, doing professional and volunteer documentation works on topics related to human rights, especially issues related to urban social issues. Christian Matute Sagbay incarnated on the lands currently referred to as Gualaceo, Ecuador. Not too long ago it was kichwa/kañari territory. This recognition of land and language has drawn Christian to the work of language justice. He is currently exploring this avenue of healing while keeping in mind the need for future generations to decolonize themselves through expansive and yet connective land-based principles.

Tiokasin’s guest for the full hour is Dr. Tink Tinker. They discuss the 50th anniversary of the publication of "God is Red" by Vine Deloria, Jr. Dr. Tinker is the Clifford Baldridge Emeritus Professor of American Indian Cultures and Religious Traditions at Iliff School of Theology in Denver, Colorado. He is a citizen of the Osage Nation (wazhazhe) and has been an activist in urban American Indian communities for four decades. He joined the faculty at Iliff School of Theology in 1985 and brought an American Indian perspective to this predominantly euro-christian school. Dr. Tinker is committed to a scholarly endeavor that takes seriously both the liberation of Indian peoples from their historic oppression as colonized communities and the liberation of euro-christian (White) Americans, the historic colonizers and oppressors of Indian peoples, whose self-narrative typically avoids naming the violence committed against Indians in favor of a romance narrative that justifies their euro-christian occupancy of Indian lands.

Repeated by popular demand. Tiokasin talks with Kerri Kelly, author of “American Detox: The Myth of Wellness and How We Can Truly Heal” (North Atlantic Books, 2022). The book dives deep into wellness culture and economy while asserting a central thesis: When we are preoccupied with our own pursuit of wellness we fail to see and work toward a culture of collective care and wellbeing that actually works for everyone. Kerri is an activist, wellness disruptor and the high-profile, well-connected founder of CTZNWELL, a movement that is democratizing well-being for all. A community organizer and wellness activist, Kelli is recognized across communities for her inspired work to bridge transformational practice with social justice. Her leadership has inspired a movement that is actively organizing around issues of racial and economic justice, healthcare as a human right, civic engagement and more. Kerri is a powerful facilitator, TED speaker, and host of the prominent podcast CTZN.

Tiokasin spends the entire hour with Marley Shebala (Diné and A:shiwi) — investigative journalist, photographer, videographer and blogger. In the Diné way, she is Tó'aheedlíinii (Water Flows Together clan), her mother’s clan, and born for Cha’al (Frog clan), which is her father’s clan. Her mom is from Lake Valley, New Mexico, which is in the eastern part of the Navajo Nation and next to Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. Her father is from the Pueblo of Zuni, New Mexico. And so her home towns are Lake Valley and Zuni. “Marley Shebala's Notebook” is her website where she provides current news coverage of the Navajo government and Navajo communities on and off the Navajo Nation. She also produces Navajo Nation environmental news and political analysis of the Navajo government and legislative process. She hosted "Politics on the Navajo Nation," an internet news show. But due to unreliable WiFi on the Navajo Nation where she resides, the weekly news show was cancelled until she can raise funds to increase WiFi power at her residence. She is available for presentations on the benefits of a free and open press in Indian Country and how to achieve accurate and fair news coverage of the Navajo Nation and Indian Country. Marley works part-time at the Gallup Independent newspaper, which is headquartered in Gallup, New Mexico. She is the only reporter at the Gallup Independent Diné Bureau in Window Rock, Arizona, which covers the Navajo Nation. Before working for the Gallup Independent, she worked as the Navajo Times newspaper’s’ senior reporter specializing in investigative reporting on politics, domestic violence, law enforcement, veterans and the environment. She also covered a wide range of general interest stories. Marley’s stories have won numerous awards from state and national organizations over the more than 30 years she has been in journalism.

In the first half of the show, Tiokasin welcomes back longtime friend of “First Voices Radio” Gregg Deal, (Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe). Gregg is a multi-disciplinary artist, activist, and "disruptor." His work is informed by his Native identity and includes exhaustive critiques of American society, politics, popular culture and history. Through paintings, murals, performance work, filmmaking, spoken word, and more, Gregg invites the viewer to confront these issues both in the present and the past tense. In a 2018 TED Talk, Greg described his work as “honoring Indigenous experiences, challenging stereotypes, and pushing for accurate representations of Indigenous people in art.” It is in these "disruptions" of stereotypes and ahistorical representations which Gregg uses the term to describe his work. Gregg has exhibited his work at notable institutions both locally, nationally, and internationally including the Denver Art Museum, RedLine Gallery, and The Smithsonian Institution. The artist currently lives with his wife and five children along the Front Range of Colorado. Gregg’s current exhibit, “End of Silence,” is on view through October 12th at RedLine Contemporary Art Center in Denver, Colorado. A major review in The Denver Post on September 19, called the exhibit, “loud in every way,” and also said it is “one of the best, and most ambitious, exhibitions this year in the region. It has a lot to say, as much about painting and pop culture as it does the politics of convenience, human mistreatment and oppression — and in that way it lives up to its title.” More information about Gregg is at greggdeal.com. In the second half, we feature a discussion about “Saging the World,” a 20-minute documentary which is the focal point of a campaign to deter the global rush on white sage (Salvia apiana), driven by widespread cultural appropriation of smudging. Tiokasin’s guests are Co-Directors Rose Ramirez and Deborah Small. The film was created by Rose and Deborah in partnership with the California Native Plant Society.

Synopsis: Colonization is a political agenda of an ideology quite often associated with forcing non-westernized peoples who suffer from the consequences of colonization, in the appropriation of land use benefiting the colonizer.

In 1993, Indigenous peoples, including the Yakima, Klickitat and other area nations gathered to stop the violent disrespect to a time immemorial place of sustenance called Nanainmi Waki ‘Uulktt for the Klickitat Nation. John Trudell (Dakota, d. 2015) spoke to bring attention and support to efforts of recognizing and honoring treaty rights often dismissed by Western concepts of property, the guise of money, and the system which makes everyone vulnerable to a situational acceptance of democracy. Trudell spoke at the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington in front of an audience of innocence and apologetic predatory energy. Listen in to this timeless recording only edited for broadcast without removal of context. We want to thank you for listening to "First Voices Radio." Hoka hey John Trudell.

Host Tiokasin Ghosthorse talks with Martín Prechtel for the full hour about grief and praise. Martín is a leading thinker, writer and teacher in the search for the Indigenous soul in all people — a dedicated student of eloquence, history, language and an ongoing fresh approach. In his native New Mexico, Martín teaches at his international school Bolad’s Kitchen, a hands-on historical and spiritual immersion into language, music, ritual, farming, cooking, smithing, natural colors, architecture, animal raising, clothing, tools, grief and humor to help people from many lands, cultures and backgrounds to remember and retain the majesty of their diverse origins while cultivating the flowering of integral culture in the present to grow a time of hope beyond our own. Martín’s books include: “Secrets of the Talking Jaguar”; “Long Life, Honey in the Heart”: “The Disobedience of the Daughter of the Sun”; “Stealing Benefacio’s Roses”; “The Unlikely Peace of Cuchumaquic” and “The Smell of Rain on Dust: Grief and Praise.” His latest book, “Rescuing the Light: Quotes from the Oral Teachings of Martín Prechtel” was published in June 2021.

2022-08-0359:34

Tiokasin talks with Kerri Kelly, author of American Detox: The Myth of Wellness and How We Can Truly Heal, (North Atlantic Books, 2022). The book dives deep into wellness culture and economy while asserting a central thesis: When we are preoccupied with our own pursuit of wellness, we fail to see and work toward a culture of collective care and wellbeing that actually works for everyone. Kerri is an activist, wellness disruptor and the high-profile, well-connected founder of CTZNWELL, a movement that is democratizing well-being for all. A community organizer and wellness activist, Kelli is recognized across communities for her inspired work to bridge transformational practice with social justice. Her leadership has inspired a movement that is actively organizing around issues of racial and economic justice, healthcare as a human right, civic engagement and more. Kerri is a powerful facilitator, TED speaker, and host of the prominent podcast CTZN.

Tiokasin's guest is Will Falk, who will give an update on Thacker Pass in northern Nevada. In January 2021, Will and Max Wilbert launched an occupation of a proposed lithium mine at Thacker Pass. Will is a writer, lawyer, and environmental activist. He believes the ongoing destruction of the natural world is the most pressing issue confronting us today. Activism has taken Will to the Unist'ot'en Camp - an Indigenous cultural center and pipeline blockade on unceded Wet'suwet'en territory in so-called British Columbia, Canada, to a construction blockade on Mauna Kea in Hawai'i, and to endangered pinyon-juniper forests in the Great Basin. Will's first book, How Dams Fall: Stories the Colorado River Told Me was published in August, 2019 by Homebound Publications. For more information, visit https://www.protectthackerpass.org/.
