NS-NV Features Anti-Columbus Playlist
Lincoln, NE - This edition of Native Sounds-Native Voices (NS-NV) co-hosts Aden (Sioux) and Alex bring the best in contemporary Native music. In the ‘70s a lot of political activism was going on through the country. For example, there were the hippies and their message of free love to the Black Panther movement. Native Americans were also involved with protests for civil rights. Alcatraz was a starting point for Native students from Berkley University to protest broken Native American treaties. Native leaders like John Trudell and Mitch Walking Elk have turned their passion into a musical art form.
This playlist includes great Native music like Black Fire, Robbie Robertson and American Indian Movement members John Trudell and Mitch Walking Elk. Listen to the live broadcast of NS-NV every Thursday morning from 8-10 a.m. C.T. on www.KZUM.org and www.AIROS.org. Also, check out the documentary about John Trudell from www.visionmaker.org. Another great documentary about civil rights from visionmaker is For the Rights of All: Ending Jim Crow in Alaska.
