First Voices Indigenous Radio was the first Indigenous radio program in the northeastern U.S., has been airing on WBAI for 11 years. With more than 1 million online hits annually, the program has become known for bringing to the airwaves the experiences, perspectives and struggles of Indigenous peoples worldwide whose exclusion from mainstream, progressive and alternative media is deleterious to the whole of humanity.

The show's Host is John Kane, Mohawk. Founding Host and Executive Producer is Tiokasin Ghosthorse, Lakota. Past shows are available at www.firstvoicesindigenousradio.org.

FVIR has been re-broadcasted on 45 stations in 15 states in the the U.S. and one Canadian province, including: Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, Northwest Territories, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont, and Washington.
