CONTINUING OUR COVERAGE FROM STANDING ROCK

In the first half-hour of this week's edition of "First Voices Radio," we feature two pre-recorded interviews conducted by Tamar Maya Sharabi over the past month at Standing Rock. The first interview features Andre Perez (Kanaka Maoli), a community activist from O’ahu, Hawai’i. The second interview features water protector Sasha Star from Red Lake Nation in northern Minnesota. Sasha has been at Standing Rock since last August. In the second half-hour, Host Tiokasin Ghosthorse speaks with Dr. Kyle Whyte. Dr. Whyte — Potawatomi and an enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation — is Timnick Chair in the Humanities at Michigan State University. His research, teaching, training and activism address moral and political issues concerning climate policy and Indigenous peoples, and the ethics of cooperative relationships between Indigenous peoples and client science organizations. Dr. Whyte’s work has recently extended to cover issues related to Indigenous food sovereignty. Tiokasin will talk with Dr. Whyte about his recent article, “Why the Dakota Access Pipeline fight continues,” originally published in The Conversation and picked up for publication by Indianz.com on January 6. Learn more about Dr. Whyte and his work at www.kylewhyte.cal.msu.edu.
