      Coming up this Week on N.A.C.

      Monday, March 2, 2009 - People of the Hemp:
      Laws have been passed to legalize marijuana for medicinal use. What's next? Two brothers from the Tuscarora tribe of New York recently faced a judge after having their property and hemp garden raided by federal and local law enforcement. However, according to reports, the brothers were given a mere slap on the wrist. Part of their defense was that the Tuscarora, known as the "People of the Hemp," have been growing and smoking hemp flower medicine for centuries for spiritual purposes. Is a new law in the making? Invited guests include cannabis cultivator Crandy Johnson (Tuscarora). �

      Tuesday, March 3, 2009 - Current Events:
      Members of the Council of Energy Resource Tribes will meet in Washington to discuss energy development on tribal lands. The National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development is "Going Global, Thinking Green, Generating Growth" in Las Vegas at their annual economic summit. The DARE to be You program in southern Colorado is recruiting families with youth grades 3-5 to teach them personal success skills and introduce the sciences as career options. Do you have a current event you'd like to announce over our airwaves?

      Wednesday, March 4, 2009 - The Role of a Tribal Citizen:
      Each and every day, Native societies are shaped by the actions and beliefs of their members. What is the role of the citizens who constitute the makeup of each tribe? How does our perception of being a U.S. citizen compare to our tribal sense of citizenship? Can re-examining this role make an impact on the social ills of our tribal communities, like drug abuse and crime? How do the actions of individual Native citizens play into the larger scheme within their tribes? Guests include Native American business advocate and consultant Sherry Salway Black (Oglala Lakota).

      Thursday, March 5, 2009 - Too Young for Domestic Violence:
      Everyone's had a first love or a school-age sweetheart, and teens will go on finding themselves in the throes of young love for as long as there are young people. Sometimes a young person can find themselves in a relationship that's turned from supportive and caring to controlling and scary. There are resources out there for young people who find themselves in abusive relationships. Where can teens turn for help? Guests include Candice Hopkins, Director/Love Is Respect - National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline.

      Friday, March 6, 2009 - Women Warriors of the Hardwood:
      The game of basketball has a long history in the lives of Native women. One special place was Montana's Fort Shaw Indian School. In 1904, at the World's Fair in St. Louis, a group of young Native women from the boarding school played basketball, in the words of one descendent, "better than anyone else in the world." A new PBS documentary, Playing for the World, and a new book called Full Court Quest tells their compelling story. What connection exists between the game and the women of Native America? And how has this sport served as a bridge for many Native women? Guests TBA.

        Monday, April 19, 2010 - What Is the Tea Party?:
        The original Boston Tea Party was a prelude of things to come in America. The new Tea Party is also causing a stir across the lands as the movement continues to pick up steam. There is even a chapter on the Crow reservation in Montana, home of President Obama's adopted tribe and family. Some folks categorize the movement as separatist, reactionary, and racist. But organizers continue to rally people with their message of fighting against excessive government spending, government invading our private lives, and soaring deficits. What do you think of the Tea Party? Our guest is Karmelita Plains Bull Martin (Crow), co-founder/Crow Nation Tea Party.

        Tuesday, April 20, 2010 - Native Youth Olympics in Alaska:
        Youth from across Alaska will gather in Anchorage in the spirit of their ancestors to demonstrate their skills in the Native Youth Olympics. Nearly 400 Alaska Native youth are expected to participate in this year's games. The games are intended to provide insight into Alaska's rich cultural heritage, while promoting a healthy lifestyle. They are based on the life skills that past generations of Alaska Natives had to demonstrate. Are culturally relevant exercises the key to getting Native youth moving and thinking about their heritage? Guests will include Native Youth Olympic organizers.

        Wednesday, April 21, 2010 - Music Maker: TBA:
        The distinctive sound of the powwow drum couldn't be sweeter during the spring time. As powwow season hits full swing, we'll bring you some of those sounds that make the dancers move. So when the drum starts to vibrate, does your heart seem to pound even harder? Tune in for our Mystery Music Maker of the Month.

        Thursday, April 22, 2010 - Climate Change Talks in Cochabamba:
        The World People's Conference on Climate Change in Cochabamba, Bolivia will once again call attention to Mother Earth Day. Bolivian President Evo Morales is calling for a "charter of rights" for the planet. The conference aims to organize a world people's referendum on global warming, and draw up an action plan to create an international climate justice tribunal. Even if commitments are made toward these goals, and alternatives to Copenhagen are devised, what can these talks actually accomplish? Guests TBA.

        Friday, April 23, 2010 - Evolution of Natives in Film:
        Starting in May, the Turner Classic Movies cable channel will reflect on Native American Images in Film in their weekly series called "Race and Hollywood." Each Tuesday and Thursday, films connected to the world of the Native American will be explored. As one sect of the media takes a critical look at Natives in film, what use is it to look back at some of these films which depict Natives inaccurately and in a bad light? How do these films help current day filmmakers to seize the moment? Guests include Hanay Geiogamah (Kiowa) Professor of Theater/UCLA School of Theater Film and Television.
