InterTribal presents:

Good morning and welcome to your weekend.

Today brings us to show number 3 in our countdown. It is also hard to believe that this is the last Saturday in June. That means we are halfway through the year. Where has time gone. Tonight as I write this, I am stressing for all my sisters and brothers, sons and daughters who are going to be affected by the overturning of Roe vs. Wade. This is unacceptable. Even more so is Justice Thomas’s desire to overturn more laws having to do with everyone’s privacy in their own home. More specifically, their bedrooms. I can only hope that today’s music will aid in releasing some of that stress for all of us.

Walk in Peace,
Tall Feathers

Good morning and welcome to you weekend!

We have arrived to the last four shows of InterTribal. This show being 4 of 4. It is with a heavy heart that I count down the remaining shows. I may sound upbeat, but I am not. It has been a great 17 years and I will miss everyone who has called, visited the station or appeared on the show.

This Sunday is Father’s day, followed by the arrival of Summer on Tuesday at 5:13 AM. The music was selected to celebrate the arrival of Summer and a couple to honor the fathers. Since honoring the fathers should be a daily experience, I decided to keep my primary focus on Summer.

Thank you for joining me every Saturday morning.

Walk in Peace,
Tall Feathers

Welcome to your weekend, welcome to your Saturday!

InterTribal is the show that makes the sun rise.

Greetings to all of you. Today’s show is #5 in our countdown to July 9, 2022, the celebration of 17 years and our last new InterTribal show.

This week, the universe tested my metal to see how determined I was to produce this week’s show. My internet was out all day Thursday and had to use my cellular hotspot just to produce the show. But I hung in and got it done. So here, for your listening pleasure: The Sun Rising.

Walk in Peace,
Tall Feathers

Good morning and welcome to your weekend.

This weekend is a holiday weekend. Though I fail to understand how we can celebrate the lives lost in service to this country. Honor them, yes. But party? No. This is not a fun time for those who lost their children, husbands, wives, sisters, brothers, and parents while serving us. I pray everyone has a somber weekend and hold those we’ve lost dear in our hearts.

Today’s show is called “A Place to Call Home” because so many of us seek that home in another. But we must find it in ourselves first. I am honoring KBong & Raye Zaragoza who just released their new song “A Place to Call Home” this week. You will hear it played later in this show.

Walk in Peace,

Tall Feathers

This is show #7. After today, we only have six more to go.

Good morning and welcome to your weekend.

Last week we experienced technical difficulties and most of last week’s show did not air. Therefore, I have remastered the show to ensure the last two hours from last week, which includes new music.

I have named this show 8 of 8 because the countdown to InterTribal’s last show has officially begun. No, I am not celebrating. I am very saddened by this. But this was my choice so my life can go in new directions. I plan to stay associated with WRIR, but in the background when I can.

Walk in Peace,
Tall Feathers

InterTribal presents:

DUE TO TECHNICAL ISSUES, MOST OF THIS SHOW DID NOT AIR. THE LAST TWO HOURS WILL BE AIRED ON 05/21/2022.

Good morning and welcome to your weekend!

Today is Saturday, May 14th, 2022. That means just 8 more weeks until the Anniversary show of InterTribal. Can you believe it has been 17 years since InterTribal aired for the first time at 6 am, July 9, 2005? It has been an amazing journey. I need to say Thank You to each of you because you made this show a popular Saturday morning wake up show. All the memories I have are fond memories of all the drives into the station, especially during winter. Those were always fun. Then there were the drives from Mid-May to July when the sun would begin to crest the horizon before I arrived at the station. These memories also bring with it all the friends I have made here at the station and out doing radio stuff at the various pow-wows or all my interviews on-air or pre-recorded.

These memories make the following difficult to announce because it is like giving up a part of one’s self. I failed to mention it during this session of InterTribal, but next week, I will be officially announcing the end of InterTribal is near. Bringing this show full circle, I will air the last show of InterTribal on July 9, 2022 from 6 to 9 am. We have just 8 more shows after today’s show. I have tried to find volunteers who wanted to learn radio broadcast production in hopes they would take over the show, and so far have not found anyone. That stated, WRIR is committed to welcoming the next person wanting to host an Indigenous radio show.

Let us not mourn the loss of this radio show, but instead, celebrate the 8 more shows to go. It has been a wonderful journey.

Thank you – Tall Feathers

WRIR’s Spring Fund Drive is here! And we need you to help us reach $45,000. You can do that by help InterTribal raise $500 in three hours. With everyone’s help, I know we can do it.

Today’s music contains more contemporary blend mixed with traditional. Many of the musical artists selected today are from Canada. I hope you enjoy the musical selection this week.

Good morning and welcome to your weekend.

Wow, we had a close brush with Summer this past week. Thank goodness for the cooldown. I suppose Spring is back.

This week, we discover new music, new artists and new audio from music videos nominated for Native American Music Awards. The audio I will be sharing during the show are from the following videos:

Of the artists listed above, Our Last Chants is new to my rotation. If you want to experience the official videos of these artist, be sure to click the links to enjoy the beauty and splendor. I need to add that Our Last Chants and DOC Native with Spencer Battiest are two very well done and beautiful videos. Good luck to them in the awards recognition event coming up soon. Please know I have included the links in the playlist with the artist information.

This week the closeout song is from Emma Stevens with Blackbird. I am including a Link to an article I read regarding how this young artist got to meet and shake hands with Sir Paul McCartney.

Enjoy your weekend. Stay healthy and be back next week.

Walk in Peace

Good morning and welcome to your weekend!

Over this weekend the Polar Vortex made Richmond, VA a travel destination. Gusting winds of Friday heralded the forthcoming temperature drops and the activation of heat pumps everywhere. I hope this morning finds everyone warm and enjoying the rising sun. Just a reminder, Spring has officially arrived about a week and a half ago.

The selection of music navigates closer to the traditional style of InterTribal but still plays with a more contemporary sound during the middle hour. Let me know if you enjoy this musical blend.

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

I am looking for interns interested in learning radio broadcasting, audio production, and pre-recording interview and musical shows. If interested please contact me direct at [email protected] as soon as possible.

Walk in Peace,
Tall Feathers
