Our August Book of the Month is “Effigies II.”
It’s a collection of poetry from Native women writers. Join us Wednesday (August 27) to hear a sample of the works in the book and a conversation with the authors.
Native America Calling and National Native News are covering the 2014 elections through a series of special programs and reports from Native communities.
On Native America Calling, we provided listeners with an update on the potential impact of the 2013 Supreme Court decision Shelby County v. Holder. We also discussed voter registration and efforts to turn out the Native vote in 2014.
NAC senior producer Monica Braine will host a discussion tomorrow about recording our family stories.
Have you researched your family history? What did you find?
Monica’s great-great-grandmother, Josephine McCarthy Waggoner, researched the history of her family and tribe. Waggoner also interviewed over 60 chiefs from various tribes, including
Lame Deer, Sitting Bull and Rain in the Face.
