      Tune in and take part in this intense and stimulating one-hour call-in radio talk show inspiring people from all walks of life to reflect on Native American issues and how they influence our lives.

      Coming up this Week on N.A.C.


      Call toll free to participate at 1-800-996-2848


      Monday, January 7th, 2008 - Civil Rights vs. Sovereignty:
      Every tribe deals with disgruntled members and virtually all tribes have an internal system that decides matters concerning tribal members on tribal lands. But what happens when that system is challenged? What happens when members feel their civil rights are being denied? What are your major concerns when it comes to civil rights and tribal governments? Do you think it undermines or strengthens tribal sovereignty when outside courts are used to hand down decisions concerning tribal matters? Guests include John Gomez, disenrolled member of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians.

      Tuesday, January 8th, 2008 - Current Events
      It’s a new year and there's a lot of activity happening around Indian Country this month. There's a six region anti-meth training to respond to the growing methamphetamine use in their community. Also a National Indian Child Welfare Association's training session will kick off to promote positive parenting. What are the events that you are looking forward to sharing this month? Join us as we open up the airwaves to hear what is going on within our tribal nations on this first month of 2008.

      Wednesday January 9th, 2008 – In Hot Waters:
      By now, most people are aware of the possibility that global warming may wreak havoc on our planet. But, how will this play out under the surface of our waters? Some Native Peoples have seen fish moving to new feeding and spawning grounds, others have seen coral dying en mass. What do these changes mean for people who depend on the waters for survival? Is this the beginning of the end for aquatic species? Guest include Mike Smith, Koyokon Athabascan Director of Subsistence Resources for Tanama Chief Conference

      Thursday, January 8th, 2008 - Chronicles of a Retired Nurse:
      Many Native nurses who have seen the ins and outs of a hospital in a tribal setting can also tell you a lot about life and the community. But, the stories and lessons that are gained don't leave them when they retire. Today there are many Native men and women filling the ranks of courageous and enduring care givers. What other tasks are nurses managing after they have hung up their uniforms? What are their reactions to the current health care crisis of Native nations? Guests include Captain Audrey Koertvelyessy an enrolled member of the Seneca Nation and a Senior Public Health Analyst with the Health Resources and Services Administration and Marie Kirk a retired Public Health Service Nurse from the Pueblo of Isleta.

      Friday January 11th, 2008 – The Business of Horsing Around
      In the years since contact, Native peoples of the United States have used many things that Europeans brought with them, including the horse. At one point in time, many tribes judged wealth by the number of horses a person owned. Today, some Natives are still using horses descended from the horses their families have owned for generations to make their living. Do people off the reservation realize the value of these old bloodlines? When a horse from the rez makes the big time in the ring, does their background get the respect it deserves? Guests include Ken Real Bird, Crow, Owner of Real Bird Bucking Horses, Becky Abeita, Isleta/Laguna Pueblo, Owner and Head Trainer of Steel Gate Farms, and from the Nez Perce Tribe J.R. Spencer, H orse Specialist for the Young Horseman's Project and the Nez Perce Horse registry.

        Monday, November 14, 2011 ~ What is Sacred?:
        The term "sacred" is thrown around quite a bit in Indian Country. Sacred lands, sacred ceremonies, sacred objects - sacred this and sacred that. The English definition describes sacred as something holy, blessed or revered. But what is the Native grassroots understanding of this term? Can something that is shared with the public be considered sacred, like our tribal dances or our traditional songs? Once they are revealed, do they lose their power or their sacredness? Is it necessary for the sacred to be shrouded in secrecy? Guests include traditional practitioner Boye Ladd (Ho Chunk).

        Tuesday, November 15, 2011: ~ Say No to Cigarettes:
        Native Americans smoke more tobacco than other racial populations despite the fact that virtually everyone knows the health risks associated with smoking. There is a push among many tribal communities to make a distinction between commercial and traditional tobacco. Experts believe that cigarettes are one of the hardest addictions to break. Have you tried to quit smoking? What are the best methods to break the habit and return to a healthier lifestyle? Guests include Dr. Patricia Nez-Henderson (Navajo) Vice-President/Black Hills Center for American Indian Health.

        Wednesday, November 16, 2011: ~ Media, Imagery and Native Youth:
        What is going on before your children's eyes in terms of media and entertainment aimed at their little hearts and minds? Are your children thirsty for imagery that reflects who they are as a Native person on the cartoons or TV shows they are exposed to? Are you as parents eager for this type of programming? What is the value in seeing Native imagery on TV, in the movies or any type of media our children view? Guests include Sunshine Archambault-Carlow (Hunkpapa/Oglala Lakota) Education Manager/ Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and representatives from Canada's "Wapos Bay" TV series.

        Thursday, November 17, 2011: ~ Managing Your Per Capita Money:
        Many Native American teenagers receive large lump sums of money that has been held in trust by their tribal government until they turn eighteen. The amounts they receive can be staggering, and the impulse to spend can be uncontrollable. Some tribes put restrictions on how their members can use the money. Is giving our Native youth access to large sums of money dangerous? Should the checks come with classes that teach them how to manage their finances? Guests include Shawn Spruce (Laguna Pueblo) Programs Consultant/First Nations Development Institute.

        Friday, November 18, 2011: ~ Reviewing the Yucca Mountain Project:
        The Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository in Nevada would potentially store the nation's spent nuclear reactor fuel and other high level radioactive waste. But the project was more or less cancelled in 2009 after President Obama took office. Now, more than two dozen organizations, including the Prairie Island Indian Community, are asking the U.S. Senate to resume the Yucca Mountain Project review by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Should the Yucca Mountain repository be re-examined? Guests TBA.
