12 Noon: First Voices Radio: Tiokasin Ghosthorse

Our Host Tiokasin Ghosthorse is away from the studio. On this repeat edition of “First Voices Radio,” we dig deep into the show’s extensive 28-year old archive and present three remarkable individuals. Tiokasin interviews William Iġġiaġruk Hensley (Iñupiaq), author of “Fifty Miles from Tomorrow.” This is a stirring memoir of his childhood among the Iñupiaq people of Alaska, his lifelong crusade, including a stint in Congress, to protect their culture and way of life. It is the inspiring true story of one man’s quest to preserve and defend his people’s “Ilitqusiat” or Native Spirit.

Tiokasin also interviews Mari Boine, a Norwegian Sami musician known for having added jazz and rock to the yoiks of her Native people. Mari, who was born in Finnmark, Norway, grew up amid the Laestadian Christian movement as well as amidst discrimination against her people. She was asked to perform at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, but refused because she perceived the invitation as an attempt to bring a token minority to the ceremonies. In the strict lestadian milieu joik was viewed as the devil’s work. “I am not Christian today,” she says, “But I have a holistic religion. I think this religion is gaining ground world wide.” More about Mari at www.mariboine.no.

We close out the show with “What Happened to the Tribes of Europe” by John Trudell (Santee Dakota, d. 2015) from his 2001 album, “DNA: Descendant Now Ancestor.”
