12 Noon: First Voices Radio: Tiokasin Ghosthorse

Tiokasin’s first guest of the hour is Alex White Plume. Alex was born on the Pine Ridge Reservation and grew up strongly connected to Lakota culture. He is a former Vice-President and Tribal President of the Oglala Lakota Nation, and is one of the founders of the Wounded Knee Bigfoot Memorial Ride, which began in 1986. Alex is also a farmer and from 2000 to 2002, he earned unwanted publicity when United States federal drug agents raided his farm and destroyed his crop of industrial hemp before he could harvest it for seed as he intended. A lot has happened since those early years and Tiokasin and Alex will discuss the challenges and changes that he has been through to the present.

Tiokasin’s second guest of the hour is Amalia Córdova, a filmmaker, curator and scholar specializing in Indigenous film. She is the Latino Digital Curator at the Smithsonian Institution’s Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage. Amalia was previously a Latin American program specialist for the Film and Video Center of the National Museum of the American Indian in New York City. She has served as Assistant Director of New York University’s Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and taught at NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study. Amalia holds a Ph.D. in Cinema Studies and an M.A. in Performance Studies from NYU. She is from Santiago, Chile (Wallmapu / Mapuche Territory). Tiokasin will talk with Amalia about the current political unrest and the violent protests in Chile that have forced the cancelation of the COP 25 climate conference in Santiago, which was scheduled for December 2019.

Our third guest of the hour is Manuel Rozental, who had a special report on the October 29, 2019 massacre of Indigenous people in Colombia. Manuel is a Colombian activist, researcher and community organizer with Indigenous and popular movements in Colombia and throughout the Americas for close to 40 years. “On October 29, 2019, the Indigenous guard of the municipality of Toribio, Northern Cauca, was carrying out its territorial control patrol in the La Luz sector of the Tacueyó reserve, when three vehicles arrived with members of the “Dagoberto Ramos” column of the FARC dissident group, who, with complete disrespect to the indigenous guard and their legitimate exercise of autonomy, fired indiscriminately, ending the life of the Neehwesx Indigenous Authority Cristina Bautista and the “Asdruval Cayapu” Guards, Eliodoro Finscue, José Gerardo Soto and James Wilfredo Soto, as well as leaving the other members of the authority injured Peteche, and the Guardians José Norman Montano, Matías Montano, Dora Rut Mesa and Rogelio Taquinas.” Tiokasin and Manuel discuss this most recent atrocity carried out against Indigenous people.

7:30 PM: Tidings from Hazel Kahan

This week Hazel presents the second of the special two-part Tidings program in which Pakistani filmmaker Shireen Pasha talks about making her film Hima Remembers, an exploration of an extraordinary time in the history of the Indian subcontinent following the decline of the Mughal Empire in the 18th century. With the history of the city of Lucknow in the province of Awadh as background and the era of Partition between India and Pakistan providing context for the present, Pasha’s documentary traces 95-year old Hima’s life as she remembers the Awadh that was home. Through artful use of letters and stories, she illustrates Hima’s relationship with her father, a renowned writer and former landowner and nobleman who represents the best of Lakhnauvi civility and grace, a civilization now more memory than reality. The film is in Urdu, currently without subtitles.
