      1) NAC Topics for 3/15 - 3/18

      Listen live every weekday from 1-2pm ET by going to www.airos.org or tuning into your local radio station. For a list of affiliates go to http://www.nativeamericacalling.com/nac_affiliates.shtm To call in and participate in this electronic talking circle call 1-800-99-NATIV (1-800-996-2848)

      MON - 3/15: Women & the White House:
      It appears as if John Kerry might be 'the man' for the Democrat's challenge to George W. Bush for the White House. The U.S. military in Iraq and Afghanistan, the sluggish economy, national security, and the mounting deficit are just the tip of a gigantic political iceberg. There are however a number of issues that are of particular interest to women, across all socioeconomic and ethnic lines. Equal pay, domestic violence, reproductive rights and family issues lead the list of some of them. What issues have a higher priority for Native women, compared to the rest of American society? Guests include Sharon Asetoyer, Native American Women's Health Education Resource Center.

      TUE - 3/16: Skyrocketing Tribal Attorney Fees:
      In today's fast-paced world of political maneuvering and legislative spin doctoring, it's imperative for tribes to have a savvy team of legal experts at their disposal. Nearly every tribe in the country is spending huge amounts of money to retain attorneys and Indian law is a multi-million, perhaps billion dollar industry. So where do Indian lawyers fit into this lucrative picture? As tribes and their legal issues become more sophisticated, are tribes hiring more Native firms, or at least making an effort? What about inexperienced briefcase warriors? How do they find a seat at the law table? Guests include Pablo Padilla, a University of New Mexico law student from Zuni Pueblo.

      WED - 3/17: Effective Strategies for Community Change:
      Over the generations, colonialism and devastating federal policies have negatively impacted Native communities. For the most part, Native culture has endured, but we've paid a high price. Today, the influences of drugs, crime, abuse and physical and spiritual illness are real threats. An organization is seeking to re-awaken wellness for Native men and women, by incorporating innovative technology and present-day communication as tools for effective community change. What is lacking in the wellness of Native men and women? And how can a Native community acquire tools to heal community? Guests include Pamela Iron of Health Promotion for Women and Billy Rogers of the Native Wellness Institute.

      THU - 3/18: Please Do Not Touch the Indians:
      What do Sister Coyote, Brother Raven and Mister Wolf have in common, besides sounding like characters of a children's fairytale? They are characters in a play called 'Please Do No Touch the Indians.' It's a tender and heart-wrenching tale that portrays the struggles and dreams of Native Americans through history, using animal characters and social biases that depict the life struggles and life experiences of Native American love, laughter and survival. Is this play a realistic image of who Native people really are? Do Indians advance certain stereotypes of themselves? Guests include singer/songwriter Arigon Starr of the Kickapoo Nation and director Randy Reinholz of the Choctaw Nation.

      2) Voices From The Circle: Fighting Stereotypes

      In light of recent stereotypical representations of Native American cultures, VOICES FROM THE CIRCLE: NATIVE AMERICAN RADIO focuses its attention, commentary and music on the recent OutKast/Grammy Awards and University of Illinois Chief Illiniwek incidents.

      Next week, we will have commentary from the Navajo Nation, Native performers and Indian leaders about these mock portrayals of "Honor" to Indian people.

      "VOICES" begins with 'nishnabeque Annie Humphrey and "Justice Hunters."

      The Thunderbird Sisters inspire us with the "Spirit of Crazy Horse."

      From Canada's Thunderchild Reserve comes High Noon's world-famous pow wow style and an "Intertribal" designed to unite The People.

      Peter Kater and R. Carlos Nakai collaborate, once again, and the results are predictably spectacular; "Deep Waters" and " The West."

      Bill Miller's had enough cultural appropriation, if you can judge by the tone of his "Raven In The Snow."

      Premieaux and Mike ask the question of what you have done for your people on "Blood, Sweat and Tears."

      Darren Geffere addresses the topic of being "Uncivilized."

      Litefoot concludes this week's VOICES with "How We Must Be" and "For My People."

      'til next week, giigawabamin!
