Guest Hosts for August: John Kane and Mario Murillo
Please welcome back JOHN KANE as guest host of First Voices Indigenous Radio for the month of August and to MARIO MURILLO – former host of WBAI NY's "Wake Up Call".
JOHN KARHIIO KANE is a Mohawk from Kahnawake. John has been involved in Native issues and specifically defending Native sovereignty most of his adult life. He was part of the First Nations Dialogue Team and the League of First Nations with New York State over taxation.
He takes pride in tackling the tough issues that face Native people and refuses to participate in the "buffalo speeches" that continue to dumb down Native culture and beliefs often conveyed through stereotyped colonial terminology and lack of knowledge of Native peoples. John also writes the Native Pride blog which can be found at www.letstalknativepride.blogspot.com. John is not afraid to be labeled a warrior, but prefers to be considered a diplomat and a teacher.
John will be hosting the August 2nd, 9th and 30th edition of FVIR.
MARIO MURILLO is Associate Professor and Chair of the Radio, Television and Film Department in the School of Communication at Hofstra University, and a long-time radio journalist and activist at WBAI NY and other radio stations in the metro area and overseas. He is Co-Director of The Center for Civic Engagement at Hofstra University, and author of “Colombia and the United States: War, Unrest and Destabilization, and the forthcoming "Voices of Resistance: Indigenous Radio and the Struggle for Social Justice in Colombia” from South End Press.
Mario will be hosting the August 16th and 23rd edition of FVIR.
SO MARK THOSE DATES and LISTEN IN to these two remarkable hosts on First Voices Indigenous Radio.
