In the first half-hour of this repeat edition, Roberto RodriguezDr. Cintli—is a long-time journalist/columnist who returned after 30 years to the classroom to get his Masters and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin. His 2008 dissertation was on the 7,000 year history of maiz. It led to his book: “Our Sacred Maiz is our Mother” from the University of Arizona Press. He is currently an associate professor at the University of Arizona in the Department of Mexican American Studies. He is working on Smiling Brown, a project that investigates color and color consciousness. He also has a new book from the University (UA Press): “Yolqui: A Warrior Wummoned from the Spirit World,” a memoir and book chronicling the underworld of law enforcement abuse. Dr. Cintli is published regularly at TruthOut.Org. He also blogs at drcintli.blogspot.com.

in the second half, we welcome award-winning playwright, author, columnist, film maker and lecturer Drew Hayden Taylor. An Ojibway from the Curve Lake First Nations in Ontario, Drew has worn many hats in his literary career, from performing stand-up comedy at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., to being Artistic Director of Canada’s premiere Native theatre company, Native Earth Performing Arts. Drew has been an award-winning playwright, with over 70 productions of his work, a journalist/columnist, appearing regularly in several Canadian newspapers and magazines, a short-story writer, novelist, television scriptwriter, and has worked on over 17 documentaries exploring the Native experience. Most notably, he wrote and directed REDSKINS, TRICKSTERS AND PUPPY STEW, a documentary on Native humor for the National Film Board of Canada. Through many of his books, most notably the four-volume set of the FUNNY, YOU DON’T LOOK LIKE ONE series, he has tried to educate and inform the world about issues that reflect, celebrate, and interfere in the lives of Canada’s First Nations. Earlier this year, a film, SEARCHING FOR WINNETOU, which was directed and written by Drew and executive produced by Paul Kemp, aired on CBC Docs POV. The film explores the controversy surrounding cultural appropriation of Indigenous culture in an innovative, hilarious, unnerving, yet inspiring way.
