John Kane on FIRST PERSON RADIO 10/12/16

Join Laura Waterman Wittstock and Roy Taylor on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 as they talk with John Kane, Mohawk, Native show host on WBAI-FM in New York City. We will talk about the national election and how Indian America is responding to the candidates this year. Donald Trump, a real estate business man who has frequently been at odds with Native Nations over casino operations, is no stranger in some quarters, and is virtually unknown in others. On the other hand, her opponent, Hillary Clinton is known in some tribal areas when she was Secretary of State and in favor of opening the pipeline across Indian lands. The specific nature of the association of these two candidates with issues in Indian Country will make for a lively discussion.
