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

Good morning and welcome to your weekend.

With the new year underway and the weekend having arrived, I figured we could use relaxing music to ease us into our morning.

Glad to have you along on this journey. Lots of newer music and fresh artists I wanted to share with you.

Enjoy, Stay Healthy, and Love yourself.

Walk in Peace,

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Yuletide, Happy Kwanzaa, and Happy Hanukkah (for all who celebrated that holiday at the start of this month)

No matter how you celebrate this time of year, I wish you all good health, joy, laughter, love, happiness and peace.

This show is full of holiday music. I think this was the most music I have been able to find performed by indigenous musical artists. I hope you have a blessed morning and build beautiful memories.

Happy Holidays to you all.

Good morning and welcome to your weekend.

Today we celebrate the Winter Solstice and anticipate the Holiday of Christmas. I can remember when I was a child I used to write greeting cards that had Yuletide written on them. I also remember asking my mother about Seasons Greetings. What it meant and why would it be used.

She explained, if you wish to give a holiday greeting to a stranger, but you did not know what holiday they celebrated it would be polite to say “seasons greetings”. “It was a sign of respect”, she said. Today people get so up in arms about people who say “Happy Holidays”. These are not statements of war against your beliefs, these statements are signs of openness and welcoming the existence of  those who believe different than you.

Happy Holidays to each and everyone.

Walk in Peace,
Tall Feathers

Good morning and welcome to your weekend.

I don’t know about you but I feel as though the year is racing to its conclusion. In two weeks it will be Christmas morning, and in a week after that we will be starting the year off with InterTribal on January 1, 2022.

Once again you will find holiday songs sprinkled throughout the show.

Happy Holidays everyone.

Walk in Peace,

Tall Feathers

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!

Now that the temperatures have fallen below freezing, I think it is time to invite your to gather round the community fire. This is the weekend before Thanksgiving. I understand there is much happening to prepare and many will soon begin their travels or your guest’s arrival is expected soon.

My hope is the selected music will help you start your day with a smile on your face. So, grab that cup of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate, get your muffins in the oven and the eggs in the frying pan as the music provides the mood of your morning.

Today News and Information is listed below.

The 5th Annual Pocahontas Reframed Film Festival enters its second day at the VMFA. Visit the website here for more details and get your tickets here.

This Week in Indian Country we will hear two stories:

Aliyah Chaves interviews Steven Peters, Creative Director of Smoke Sygnals on the Indian Country Today news network. The segment is called A Wampanoag retelling of Thanksgiving.

Next, Mark Trahant interviews both Jodi Archambault and Jourdan Bennett-Begaye regarding the White House Summit.

You may watch the entire news broadcast of the stories shared in the show by clicking the links above or visit Indian Country Today.

Feel free to submit local indigenous news that you would like to see included, email Katie Tall Feathers at: [email protected] to share the details.

Walk in peace and Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

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.
