Join Laura Waterman Wittstock on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 1 pm for a repeat appearance of Indigeneity Now host Roy Taylor. We will have a news roundup and some cuts from Roy’s show.. Roy is the former co-host of FIRST PERSON RADIO. We will hear some samples from his show, which is filled with arts, international news and interview and is well worth a listen. Roy’s show airs at 6 pm on Wednesdays.
Both programs have evolved from the original Native American Program that began in 1979 on KFAI’s schedule as the new station was beginning service to the near Southside of Minneapolis. It took dedicated work to get the live program on the air each week by volunteer staff from MIGIZI Communications. Roy and Laura were among those. KFAI has had a proud tradition of providing the American Indian community with news and music, along with interesting interviews. This yer marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of MIGIZI and the 40th is just around the corner for KFAI.
Roy Taylor is Principal of White Eagle Consulting, LLC, in Minneapolis. As producer and host of Indigeneity Now, he covers international indigenous news and has guests on his show from politics, government, the arts and literature.
