John Kane on First Person Radio 11/23/16

Join Laura Waterman Wittstock and Roy Taylor on Wednesday November 23, 2016 for a discussion of the 2016 presidential election with Mohawk radio host John Kane. We’ll continue the conversation from last week with John’s perspectives on how the election went over on some of the NY reservations. We’ll also check in on Standing Rock and hear what John’s guests are saying about the water protectors.
Kane lives on the Cattaraugus Territory of the Seneca Nation and has a direct connection to the people and territories of the Six Nations. John has been involved for most of his adult life in Native issues and, specifically, defending Native sovereignty. He was part of the First Nations Dialogue Team in the late 90s and worked extensively with the League of First Nations in battles with New York State over taxation. He continues that work at the State and Federal levels with frequent trips to Albany and Washington.
He hosts two weekly radio shows. "Let's Talk Native...with John Kane" – now in its seventh year – streams online at through the Unity Stream Network and is carried by Net Roots Radio, CKWE radio in Tyendinega, Ontario and the TuneIn app. “Let's Talk with John Kane” - in its third year, is a live two hour caller talk back show. It airs on WBAI-FM 99.5 in New York City. 
His strong support of the Hawaiian independence movement has earned him a voice on Hawaiian radio. John has been featured on “Living Sovereign,” hosted by Puanani Rogers and is a regular guest on "Songs of Sovereignty" with Kaiulani Mahuka on KKCR-FM, community radio in Hanalei/Kilauea on the Island of Kauai.
He writes the Native Pride blog, and hosts two Facebook Group Pages: "Let's Talk Native...with John Kane" and "Let's Talk with John Kane on WBAI.". His writing has been featured in the Native Nations Institute’s (University of Arizona) “Indigenous Governance Database” and on the Censored News Blog.
