In the first half-hour of this special encore presentation, Gerald “Jerry” Hill is an enrolled member of the Oneida Nation in Wisconsin. He is President of the Indigenous Language Institute in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and has been a member of the Indigenous Language Board of Directors since 1997. A second language speaker of Oneida, Jerry has years of experience in the field of Native language revitalization. Jerry is an elected Chief Appellate Judge of the Oneida Nation. He has a bachelor’s degree in Linguistics from California State, Northridge and a JD from the University of California, Davis. Jerry talk about the state of Native languages today and also the ILI’s 9th annual symposium, “Symposium: Understanding Intergenerational Trauma: The Healing Power of Language,” which took place in October 22–24, 2018 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Adrian Sutherland, frontman of the band roots-rock band Midnight Shine, is the guest in the second half-hour. Midnight Shine came together by chance and they stayed together for a shot. When Adrian Sutherland, who is from Canada’s isolated Cree community of Attawapiskat, was offered the opening spot for the rock band, Trooper, in Timmins, Ontario, he reeled in three other musicians from his northern region to form Midnight Shine. Their intention was to make the most of this one-off performance. Eight years, three albums, seven Top 10 Indigenous Music Countdown radio singles, and 200-plus media stories later — you could say they have. Turning heads with a sound that seamlessly mixes roots, classic and modern rock with touches of Mushkegowuk Cree, Midnight Shine is pushing musical boundaries and boldly taking new strides, while staying true to who they are and where they come from. Sharing a glimpse through songs of what life is like in the far North, Midnight Shine is a “must-hear” band you’ll take a real shine to. The segment includes songs from two of the band’s CDs: “Sister Love” from “High Road” (2018); “Heart of Gold” (cover) from “High Road” and “Northern Man” from “Northern Man” (2014). “Heart of Gold” was released as a music video in January 2019 and to date is approaching 200K views on YouTube.

Featured Guests:

  1. Adrienne Pine, Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology at American University recounts her experience as a member of the Embassy Protection Collective, the forced police entry into Venezuela’s U.S. Embassy, her arrest along with three other members of the EPC — and the U.S. violation of international law, specifically the Vienna convention, that protects the sovereignty of all nation’s diplomatic missions abroad.

Goodman had a 42 year career in the Central Intelligence Agency, Department of State and at the Dept. of Defense’s War College. He’s the author of a number of books including, “A Whistleblower at the CIA: The Path of Dissent, and his latest American Carnage: The Wars of Donald Trump.” He’ll discuss the threat that rising tensions between the Trump administration and the government of Iran could lead to armed conflict between our two nations. He’ll also assess the veracity of the intelligence reports re: an “Iranian threat” that John Bolton & Trump are using to justify the deployment of the aircraft carrier strike group and bomber task force to the Middle East.
  3. Barbara Hudson Roberts, MD, was the first female adult cardiologist in the state of Rhode Island. As a resident at Yale New Haven Hospital, she became active in the pro-choice movement, before Roe v Wade made abortion legal. She helped found the Women’s National Abortion Action Coalition (WONAAC) and was the keynote speaker at the first national pro-choice demonstration in Washington DC in November 1971. Here she takes a critical look at the states across the U.S. now moving to impose harsh restrictions on abortion, and the disproportionate negative consequences for women of color and the economically disadvantaged. She’ll also preview her forthcoming book, “The Doctor Broad: A Mafia Love Story.”
  4. Lynne Ide, Director of Program and Policy with the Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut will discuss the campaign now underway to establish a Public Option for healthcare insurance in Connecticut.
