InterTribal presents:

Good morning and welcome to your weekend.

Today you will hear a return of the segment This Week in Indian Country. In this segment two news broadcasts are shared. This past week on Tuesday, January 11, two men journeyed on to their ancestors.

The two men are: Clyde Bellecourt – Co-Founder of AIM (American Indian Movement) and Vince Fontaine – Co-Founder of the popular band; Eagle and Hawk. May both men journey well and swiftly.

  • I had the distinct honor to have met and interacted with Clyde many years ago when I volunteered at the Prayer Vigil for the Earth several years in a row. Clyde was always there. He was open and willing to share. It was a honor to be in ceremony with him and even shared time at a picnic bench eating our meals. We talked of our mother the Earth, we spoke of our children and we just enjoyed sharing time. He truly had a wonderful heart. Clyde was involved with many activities that helped his people, his community and the indigenous population as a whole.
  • Vince Fontaine was a co-founding member of Eagle & Hawk. What can be said except I bloomed to their music late, but played their music frequently over the past year. Sharing the experiences of the indigenous people musically is a great way for the truth to be delivered. I cannot believe we lost one of the founding members. Hope we can continue to share the music of Eagle & Hawk.

The links provided above will take you to the respective news broadcasts. I am airing these broadcasts in this week’s segment of This Week in Indian Country.

I also wanted to share that I hope each of you are safe Sunday and Monday. Please take this storm seriously, especially if it is mostly sleet and or ice.

Thanks for tuning in and hope you enjoy the show.

Walk in Peace,

Tall Feathers

Happy New Year Everyone!

Welcome to your weekend and a new year. We made it through the last one together. I am happy to share the start of our new year with you and look forward to many more.

Today’s show was selected from the top music I played through the last year. Enjoy.

Walk in peace,

Good morning and happy weekend!

The community fire is lit and the show is packed full of music. December has arrived and thus it is time for some holiday music.

The Dominion Holiday Parade is marching down Broad street at 10:15 am. So come out and enjoy the festivities.

Walk in Peace,

Good morning and welcome to your weekend.

This Saturday is the last one we have in November. Thanksgiving has been honored and many people went out bargain hunting yesterday.

The music selected to day brings a mix of fun, somber, and holiday cheer. Now that the threshold for holiday music has been crossed, playing as much or as little holiday music is fair game.

This past week Joanne Shenandoah left this world and joined the ancestors. While many of us are mourning Joanne’s death I wanted to begin to plan a tribute show soon. So stay posted for the details soon.

Today there won’t be an official This Week in Indian Country. Instead I hope the music will speak for itself as a reflection of the history on this land.

Blessings to each and everyone of you.

Good morning and welcome to your weekend.

This past week we celebrated Veteran’s Day. A time to recognize all the brave men, women, and the families who served this nation.

Today’s show was created with this celebration in mind. Not so much the selection of music with warrior or veteran in the lyrics or titles, but rather, blending the selection of music in such a way that one may find it enjoyable and entertaining. You may discover some new to me musical artist with many having just released new music.

This Week in Indian Country will not be included in this episode of InterTribal. Family issues as well as animal issues made it very challenging to create the show.

I do want to add that movement is being made to add Jess to the show as a co-host and co-producer. So there is much to look forward to in 2022.

Good morning and welcome to your weekend!

This is the first Saturday of November and the chilly weather has arrived. Time to strike the fire and warm up the community fire circle. I also want to share with you that November is Native American Heritage Month.

Today I will play the final segment of the Felipe Rose interview. This has been a very surreal time for me. I keep thinking about when I was in high school dancing to disco and enjoying the music of The Village People. Felipe Rose is an Icon in the music industry.

Remember, tonight is when we turn our clocks back one hour.

Walk in Peace

Good morning and welcome to your weekend!

This week’s audio production was high paced, stressed, while also very exciting. Fund Drive time is always very active and requires many of our volunteers to get involved. The same is true even during a pandemic.

Those of us who preproduce our shows need to curate them with positive and upbeat tempos. This Fun-drive I have a very special guest who, through the magic of technology, will join me prerecorded on the October 23, 2021 show. This special guest is revealed during today’s show.

This Week in Indian Country provides two stories sourced from Indian Country Today. This weeks segment introduces you Ashley Callingbull and Meghan Sullivan. Both are interviewed by Mark Trahant.

Be sure to plan for donating during InterTribal. I will have some extra treats for you when you do.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Walk in Peace,
Tall Feathers

Good morning, Welcome to your weekend!

Happy Autumn! When autumn arrived at 3:20 pm we were experiencing grey skies and rain. I was hoping to have a fire outside to welcome in the new season, however, that was not meant to be. Since the rain nocked out my plans for an easy evening by my firepit, I decided to continue researching and working on this show.

The music I selected for today’s show is a mix of oldies as well as some fresh sound of new releases.

You can hear This Week in Indian Country airs during the 7 o’clock hour. The two topics covered in this segment are:

  1. The obituary of Shirley Little Dove Custalow McGowan

    Little Dove’s graveside funeral service is scheduled for Saturday, September 25th at 12 noon.

    Location: Mattaponi Indian Baptist Church Cemetery, 1409 Mattaponi Reservation Circle, West Point, VA 23181

  2. NPR

Media Fascination With The Petito Mystery Looks Like Racism To Some Native Americans

Updated September 21, 20215:22 PM ET

Heard on All Things Considered

KAMILA KUDELSKA

Feel free to reach out at [email protected] I would love to know of any events or news items happening locally in the native communities.

Thank you for tuning in to InterTribal and WRIR.

Walk in Peace,

InterTribal presents:

Good morning and welcome to your weekend.

This is the last weekend of freedom for your children since they return back to school. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who have made the decision to send the children into our school buildings. These are times we test ourselves as parents. This year, my grandson returns to the building and we are going to see if he cannot return to doing his lessons on-line. Like so many of us, we thought heading into the autumn that this pandemic issues would be behind us. Not only is it coming back, but it is affecting out youth. I pray we all have a good year.

Today I am including two news articles:

1 – From Indian Country Today –

2 – Out of Canada – APTN-National News

Today the show is called Sun Step. This is my way of honoring all the Sun Dancers and thanking them for their sacrifices.

Hope you enjoy the show.

Walk in Peace,
Tall Feathers

Good morning and welcome to your weekend!

Here we are gathering once again to enjoy our love for good quality music. Summer is in full throttle and soon children will return to school.

So play, play and enjoy the summer as the light shortens noticeably each week.

Wear your mask, social distance, wash hands and don’t go out unless you need to.

Remember, InterTribal is pre-recorded for your listening pleasure.

Walk in Peace,
Tall Feathers
