In September of 2005, Tara Gatewood (Isleta Pueblo/Diné) joined Native America Calling as an associate producer. She later moved into hosting our national talking circle where each weekday she has engaged with many guests and experts connected to our different Indigenous circles. For nearly 16 years she has worked diligently with a full heart to help uplift the voices of our Native nations through our Indigenous airwaves. Her work has helped open up more understanding of who we are as Native people and the strong foundations that we come from and the issues we face. Today Tara honors her time with Native America Calling and the many voices who’ve shared space with her on-air as she gets ready to take on a new chapter in her life. Join us as we celebrate her work and wish her well on her new journeys.
