Native American/Indigenous Programming

2:00 p.m. Mikki will be on the air with a Native American Special - Music and spoken word. 10 p.m. Selections from Pacifica Radio's North American Indigenous Programming -- John Trudell: 1980 Thanksgiving Address (From the Pacifica Radio Archives; recorded by Burton Segall) John Trudell makes a Thanksgiving dinner address on November 30, 1980. John Trudell is an acclaimed poet, national recording artist, actor and activist whose international following reflects the universal language of his words, work and message. Trudell (Santee Sioux) was a spokesperson for the Indian of All Tribes occupation of Alcatraz Island from 1969 to 1971. He then worked with the American Indian Movement (AIM), serving as Chairman of AIM from 1973 to 1979. In February of 1979, a fire of unknown origin killed Trudell's wife, three children and mother-in-law. It was through this horrific tragedy that Trudell began to find his voice as an artist and poet, writing, in his words, "to stay connected to this reality." 10:30 p.m. -- Reverend Holly Haile Davis at Southold, NY (Produced by Tony Ernst, WPKN in Bridgeport, CT) We present the Reverend Holly Haile Davis and the singing Thunder Bird Sisters of the Shinnecock Nation on Long Island. Music and stories from the gospel according to some Native Americans. The program was recorded at the First Universalist Church of Southold, New York on January 14, 2007. 11:00 p.m. --Indigenous Politics: From Native New England and Beyond Trudie Lamb Richmond delivers a talk titled, "Oral Histories at Schaghticoke: Shared Stories-Shared Histories-One People." 12:00 midnight Schaghticoke Tribal Nation appeal of the Bureau of Indian Affairs' unprecedented decision to strip them of US federal acknowledgment due to CT State Reps' unlawful political influence by powerful political interests. 55 minutes 1:00 a.m. --Reconsidering the Qrigins of Thanksgiving (Produced by Dr. J. Kehaulani Kauanui, WESU) What are the origins of the Thanksgiving holiday in the US? Some Americans commemorate a harvest feast celebrated in 1621 at Plymouth between the Wampanoag and the Pilgrims. Then, there is the 1637 proclamation by Massachusetts Governor John Winthrop, who claimed the first official "a Day of Thanksgiving" to celebrate the colonists who massacred the Pequots at Mystic, Connecticut. These are two very different occasions, one an indigenous feast, and the other a white settler celebration of a genocidal campaign. How are these different narratives alternately celebrated and erased? How was the creation of Thanksgiving as a national holiday a way of solidifying American national identity? This show explores the politics of Thanksgiving with interviews that provide two very different perspectives. Join host Dr. J. Kehaulani Kauanui, and guests, Ramona Nosapocket Peters (Mashpee Wampanoag), cultural worker and artist, and Moonanum James (Aquinnah Wampanoag), co-leader of the United American Indians of New England, who hosts an annual "National Day of Mourning," on Cole Hill, MA, as an alternative.
