This Live "LIstener Call-in" Discussion Program tells the story of the first contact in 1607 including the extermination of 20 tribes at the hands of the English settlers during the first 100 years of settlement.
As Virginia prepares to celebrate the historic 400th Anniversary of the Jamestown settlement, we'll talk about the distinctive tribes that first dominated the territory. Join Cathy Lewis and her guests, Upper Mattaponi Chief Ken Adams, Chief Stephen Adkins (Chickahominy) and Powhatan Owen (Chickahominy) as they discuss the Virginia Tribes battle for Federal recognition. We will also look at the first contact in 1607 and the historical misrepresentation of the Virginia Tribes in American history books. The Chiefs share their knowledge of the extermination of 20 tribes at the hands of the English settlers during the first 100 years of settlement and the systematic "paper genocide" of all Native Americans in Virginia. Join Cathy and her guests for a look at Virginia's Native Americans past, present and future.
This program features interviews with two different women from two different regions in the United States, both who are standing up or their Native Communities and Native American rights
This program features interviews with two different women from two different regions in the United States, both who are standing up or their Native Communities and Native American rights- Faith Spotted Eagle who is a Yankton- Dakota/Nakota Tribal member, is part of a protest to stop the construction of a Hog Farm, that is using a BIA road to access its building site, surrounded by checkerboard lands- some are tribal, some our private. Longview Farms LLP from Iowa is establishing a Hog Farm, "west of Wagner South Dakota" that, according to Faith and other protesters, is too close to their tribal facilities and they are concerned about health hazards and pollution. According to www.ktiv.com: "The three building swine confinement operation could hold up to 7600 head, but the group plans to have about 4000 sows on site." The second interview is with Brenda Golden: Muscogee (Creek): an active and vocal member of S.P.I.R.I.T: (Society to Preserve the Indigenous Rights and Indigenous Traditions) based in Oklahoma. This interview was conducted two days before her organization was presenting "the State of Oklahoma with a Resolution calling for the end of land run re-enactments in public schools and to teach the true history in schools." With members spanning all across the USA, Brenda says , "SPIRIT is a group of individuals dedicated to getting the true history of American Indians told. We organized for the purpose of making a difference in the state of Oklahoma. Brought together initially during the November 16th Survival Walk and Remembrance Day, SPIRIT is moving forward with addressing issues affecting all Indigenous Peoples of the Americas."

The Cherokee Heritage Center is using art to help pass on the Cherokee language.
The Cherokee language is thousands of years old. In 1821, Sequoyah--one of the most famous Cherokees in history--created a written syllabary of characters to represent the Cherokee language's sounds.
From the late 1800s through much of the 20th century, discrimination and English-only rules at Indian boarding schools discouraged use of the language, meaning most of today's Cherokees cannot speak their own language.
The Cherokee Heritage Center's new exhibit in Tahlequah, Okla., is using art to help pass on the native language.

The Native American tribe is caught between their traditions and modern life.
The Navajos are the largest Native American tribe in North America. They live in northern Arizona and New Mexico, caught between their traditions and modern life. Within, the people have to reconcile opposing cultures. Although they are faced with dominating Western values on the reservation, a minority of them try to maintain their own culture, language, and religion. It still is difficult for Native Americans to find their place in the American society. During his travels on the reservation, the author met some politically and culturally engaged Navajos, and he had the opportunity to participate in a religious ceremony. The german version was aired in Germany: Sunday, Feb. 1, 2004, 11:05 – 12:00 AM, Norddeutscher Rundfunk Hamburg

An on air conversation and voyage through Western History and American Indian Law with Professor Robert J. Miller.
This program features an interview with Robert J. Miller who is an Oregon tribal judge and law professor at the Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon. He is also an enrolled Eastern Shawnee tribal member and he is the author of Native America, Discovered and Conquered: Thomas Jefferson, Lewis & Clark, and Manifest Destiny. ? Miller analyzes the Doctrine of Discovery and shows how Thomas Jefferson and the Lewis & Clark expedition used that international legal doctrine to create Manifest Destiny ? the idea that the United States would sweep across the North American continent. This book grew out of Miller's three year involvement with the Lewis & Clark anniversary as the representative of the Eastern Shawnee Tribe and an advisor to the National Council of the Lewis & Clark Bicentennial.?
Two American Indian scholars discuss the Great Law of Peace, the founding constitution of the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy.
On this edition of Peace Talks, we hear about The Great Law of Peace, the founding constitution of the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy. Also known as the Haudenosaunee, the confederacy, according to oral tradition, came together in ancient times through the efforts of one who came to be known as the Peacemaker. We?ll be hearing the story of the Peacemaker today from Oren Lyons (pictured), Faithkeeper of the Turtle Clan, Onondaga Council of Chiefs of the Haudenosaunee. Lyons, an American Studies professor at State University of New York at Buffalo, tells us more about the principles of the great law of peace. In addition, we?ll be featuring comments from John Mohawk, also a professor at the State University of New York at Buffalo. He?s been active in diplomatic circles for the Seneca nation for years as well as being a farmer, writer and magazine editor. John Mohawk expands on the peace principles and talk about how they could be applied by individuals and other nations, to help create a more peaceful world today.
