Oh that's that's when we assessed our freedom from england we didn't want to be under the rule of king and queen will tell you if there have a moderate amount of care never about how the country was formed. Nope or anything to that nature. So you know It bothers me every time we have this holiday. I don't consider myself unique. But it's like you. It makes it. Some people might might even even within my own family right. Unfortunately we say colonization is a a disease right. It's a very real thing to me. Because we need more people within our ending communities to remember wh- where the holidays came from and not to celebrate them. So as you pointed out. Shouldn't it be or nick pointed out. Shouldn't it be honestly us doing the work of putting out content that differs from the meaning of this holiday. However people can do it right if it sharon his story like we're doing today or if it's actually going out and you know organizing Some activists whatever it may be to bring about another viewpoint.

"And so it's a really unique kind of innovation to contemporary water conflicts and struggles. But are they working? I mean, it's one thing to say like yes, we will grant you the thing that you want. But if this body of water doesn't actually Get cleaner or safer or get real protections Then is it kind of just A nice story that makes people feel better. I think that's you know, that's a really important critique. But I think it's it's maybe a bit premature indigenous societies. Indigenous legal systems have have Operated and utilize legal personhood for for nature and for other living entities. For centuries and have been successful. So that is one thing to say. No, it's not just sort of perfunctory or feel good. It actually has lasting results in understanding sustainability, and I think that that's that's a big aspect of of where we go from here. And it needs to be context specific. What's going to work for the Klamath River is not necessarily really going to work for the family River is not necessarily going to work for the Thames River in London, right, so we really have to be local and context specific but from within an indigenous context of North America and what we call Turtle Island. There are a few steps and firstly, there is a need to honor existing treaties. So many of the treaties that Canada and the United States first signed with indigenous nations. Actually talk about water and really specific instances in terms and those treaties have not been honored. And so I think when we start to think about what does legal person and for water look like the human right to water? It does start with going back to those original treaties and honoring those terms. Yeah, too often. Law is created for communities that they are not reflective of. So we need to have law for the people driven by the people. And I think that's about creating new collaborative processes for legal reform. So In the words of no commas. What are you going to do about it? What are you going to do.

She actually studied german university and was living in austria when she felt a deep longing to learn about her own culture. The best way. I could describe it was it felt like someone was holding silly putty from here and i was all the way over in austria and i could just feel like that tiny tiny little strand was was still there and i i needed to go back and and kindle let fire so most could could quay came back to turtle island and began studying an nabi mohan. She spoke with cbc's k. To dak about how falling in love with her language transformed her family and created a home. Her kids speak sounds that she says were always meant to be. There's when i began learning the language and the breakdowns and the roots of who we are and what that meant. I felt that piece. I felt like that but missing piece was was filled in and i could kind of move forward in life and move in a direction. Finally i wasn't wandering around trying to find that anymore when i began learning initiative win It's a language that is alive. it's a spirit and itself.

Navigating the Complexities of Black Indigenous Identity
"Black and indigenous communities share similar struggles as marginalized people on turtle island that combined. History can be quite complicated. My next guest has dedicated much of his work. As an academic to thinking about these connections robert keith collins is an expert on black indigenous interactions. He's an associate professor of american indian studies at san francisco state university. He's african american and choctaw. And he's here to tell us about a history. Many people know very little about welcome to the show dr collins. Thank you very much for having me. So let's start at the beginning. What is the beginning of indigenous black history. That's a fantastic question. And actually we owe a lot of our understanding about it to a canadian scholar. Alexander francis chamberlain france as in in eighteen. Ninety one wrote one of the most comprehensive analysis that we have today and that was african americans and what we find in that study is that this is actually a history. His later colleague would refer to as the third line of colonization. We've talked about a european and native colonization. We talk about european and african colonization. We seldom talk about american. Interactions during the colonization and this is a history that brings that back to live where we actually see cultural exchanges between people that are taking place within sovereign native communities as well as nations and families we also see interactions taking place especially for like in the united states among the five civilized tribes chuck. Todd's cherokees creeks chickasaw seminoles in slavery were native americans owned slaves and have an cultural impact on africans within their communities on their

"About this. It's like that is tied to this awful history that we have here in canada. Just sort of sell tori narrative that we're here we're the saviors. We weren't a part of this system right but it's so interesting. How we ourselves have it but even outside of the country we have our own sort of way of being that is ignoring this history and as a historian a love the fact that we are going back and rethinking how the history that we told ourselves that we've been telling other people really thinking critically about that end yet just sparked with me. Because i hadn't thought about that critically right now years later. I think you just how naive of me. But it's part of this whole narrative right and so we look at how when you when i think about. How do we challenge or think about how we are participating in a racist system. That was it right there. You know to me because it's realizing that there's this. There's a narrative that canadians have are better that we don't have as much racism as is as in the us. But actually i would say. Racism and canada is more insidious just absolutely because we don't talk about it. We don't have the language for it and we haven't actually built the literacy in we'd be raced really erased revenue. People and black people in canada is pretty pervasive and so it's actually really understanding canada's origin story on turtle island on the stolen land at yeah. No that's really interesting. So i'd love to just tell me a little bit about what it means to be an anti oppression coach because i know that a lot of leaders do want to to do better. They do and they know that leader. It starts with themselves. So tell me about what you do. As an anti oppression. Coach will anti racism and anti oppression are deeply interconnected in that. You cannot look at dismantling systems of racism without looking at all systems of oppression which is patriarchy which is able is on..
How Indigenous architects are resisting colonial legacies and reshaping spaces
"Indigenous people have been living on turtle island since time immemorial and that means there's a long history of traditional dwellings on this land. Much of that knowledge was interrupted due to colonialism but indigenous architects are finding ways to reclaim that knowledge and incorporated into their work today on the show from resisting the colonial legacy of architecture in this country to integrating indigenous principles into design. How indigenous people reframing the way we look at architecture are you commanded. It's like a big organic living space. This is the mouth of the space where people come in and this organism.

"turtle island" Discussed on The Dr. Susan Block Show
"For many of us. Thanksgiving while delicious is a really deeply hypocritical. American holiday really deeply. I mean first of all. There's the hypocrisy of having to be nice to your obnoxious uncle bob. Who's wearing his make america. Great again You know kind of cursing out the players for taking a knee. And you know you've got to just sort of stuff your mouth with stuffing to keep from customers or you'll upset your great onto ninety five so you don't want to do that and then there is the even greater hypocrisy of of thanksgiving which is really that. It's based almost entirely on a fictional kind of idealized. Even you could save bonobo. Ask account of these. Pilgrim's gathering together with these native americans and sharing food. It's true that the native americans did bring food and teach the pilgrims how to To grow their own food for their first thanksgiving but the pilgrims slaughtered guests. Basically pretty pretty quickly after that thanksgiving and Though native americans killed a few pilgrims to i mean it's it's not even close. This was an american genocide of just horrified unappetizing proportions. it was. I mean it's just kind of difficult to process especially if you grew up like me you know hearing about thanksgiving as this kind of peaceful gathering. Yeah this is why some people call the fourth thursday of november. A day of atonement and they actually fast on thanksgiving which i think is a very noble idea. But i don't do that. I get stuff from both ends. Because i am an incorrigible ethical but incorrigible hedonist. Yet i do feel the need for some sort of atonement and so spanksgiving yes indeed. That's right and so we spank and get spanked in a very playful but kind of meaningful penance for our ancestors or you could just say the pilgrims maybe they weren't your direct ancestors came over on the mayflower but You know if you're american and you're not native american than they're pretty much your ancestors that came over here and and so we do the penance for their sins against the natives of this land. They called turtles. To- turtle island some of them called it turtle island we call it. America named after this guy amerigo vespucci. We think kind of strange but yeah it's penance. Does it do any good for the native american tribes. That still exists today. Well probably not really. Although any way to bring attention to the situation. I think is valuable. And if i just get some spanking fetishists to acknowledge this history than i think that's That's something so otherwise. Yeah it's gonna be a fun spanking show and Yeah we can't spank away. Our ongoing sins including the biggest leak ever and the dakota access pipeline of two hundred and ten thousand gallons of oil. that's too much lube seriously. it's it's pretty disgusting and it's not something that we can just spank away. We have to take other measures but maybe the spanking kind of can get our motor going. Get the resistance mojo in gear. Yes indeed even though we can't spank away. Our sins against the people america has bombed nor the foreign lands. America has invaded nor our own citizens killed unjustly under color of law nor even our own small sins against each other. We can't spank it away but we answer bank away. Certain things we can spank away our fear. That's right and sometimes a good adult spanking. Can al chemically transmute fear and pain into these golden endorphins when administered with love. and so. yeah. Don't spank your children. It lowers their. I q but do spank consenting adults. Who enjoy being spanked. And by the way there's another reason what what number we up to eight that we spank is those thankful. Spank full. pious super hypocritical. Puritans used to spank transgressors. Whether criminals or just sexual pellet peccadilloes were their problems than they would spank him. Nonconsensual really sometimes.
History of Native Voter Suppression
"Let's jump right in and talk a little about the history of the native vote and the history of the suppression of the. Native. Vote. I got to tell you that when trump I got elected I felt. Like. Sick to my stomach I. And I. Spent a good amount of time reflecting on my own personal behavior like thinking to myself did I to enough to. Try to make this, not happen. And and the answer is you know I don't often talk about national politics both through project to on my blog personally, you know because I fi-, I find it incredibly problematic and uncomfortable to talk about because you know we're living in colonial state and the federal government has actively tried to eradicate us, and there's a long history of broken promises and broken treaties. Therefore, it feels very uncomfortable to say to my fellow native people you know. Go vote in the system that's not meant for us that doesn't actually ever do the things that it's said it's going to do but go vote. anyways you know. It feels I, feel like a hypocrite just saying it. Yeah I really feel like we need to talk about it. Right Yeah it is by no means a simple decision for folks in Indian country and I think that's really important to acknowledge and to think about as we. Start to talk about this election and what we need to do. Right and you know there has been a long history of active native vote suppression for the first one, hundred and fifty years. In this country, we weren't even allowed to vote, and then in nineteen twenty four can the Indian Citizenship Act which formally US citizens but states continued to prevent us from voting, right? I. Think Sometimes, there's memes and stuff that gets posted where it's like going through the. Different marginalized groups, and when they finally got the right to vote, and it often says like native Americans nineteen, twenty four. But we know for a fact that that's not true. Because, as you said, most states still had things in place to prevent needed from voting like it wasn't until nineteen forty eight that natives in Arizona got the right to vote and then all of that. Suppression that played into the passage of the voting. Rights, act. So in Nineteen, seventy, five. So the things like literacy tests or poll taxes or all of these suppression techniques that affected other communities of Color Also affected a native folks as well. There's all of these appalling facts that have led to all of these underlying issues and voting cases as to why are people have not shown up to the polls in the same numbers you know I I often get asked. Like whoa when I tell when I'm having this conversations with non native people and say, yeah, like a lot of not a native people that I know are don't Vo are when you look at the numbers, you know you would you might think to yourself like, well, why wouldn't native people be active in this process and just want to acknowledge that it? It's it's very systemic. Done on purpose. Absolutely. Yeah. So we're like giving the dates from like nineteen, twenty, four, nineteen, forty, eight, nineteen, seventy, five but like. In twenty eighteen North Dakota changed their ID laws to say that if you were voting, you had to have an idea that had a street address on it and most native folks in North Dakota, Po Boxes, and don't have street addresses. So it was like an active step to try and suppress native in Dakota because natives have power in voting in north. Dakota and in a lot of states that have high population. So like this is an ongoing thing for native communities and then that actually that actually didn't work out well for. North. Dakota. Because all of these activists came together got really good publicity. There was a lot of grassroots organizations and then was it Ruth Buffalo ended up taking the seat. anyways. So so you know I think that's a really good demonstration of the power of the native vote especially in rural areas of Turtle Island. What I should add to this conversation. Around. You know like the the power of the native vote and the complicity of us. Even, telling each other to vote is that. You know we want to have a relationship with the people that get elected. Even. Biden beats trump's not only going to fix the dislike colonial problem. That we have. Yeah I mean it's hard because there are definitely things we can talk about that are like. Immediate. Undoing of things that the trump administration has done that have been really harmful to you need of communities, but there's also an entire list of things that are not going to happen even under a Biden Administration And there's this. Quote that I saw on the wall of the Harvard Law School Lake. Years and years ago and I think about it often in terms of these ideas of justice or like doing what's right from the federal government I will say it's problematic because it's only attributed as a quote African proverb, which obviously is a really problematic but the the Clo- is corn cannot expect justice from court composed of chickens. And I think about that in terms of. Natives asking for equal treatment or justice from the US. Colonial government is like corn expecting justice from a court may have chickens

It will always be higher awareness are higher self that will come to save us. So we find out now foul core represents the higher self. Okay it's still it's still lost but the higher.

"turtle island" Discussed on Radio Free Nashville
"Indigenous voices of turtle island a powerful perspective of the indigenous peoples of the United States and Canada on the earth's climate and inter related code nineteen emergencies professor Richard wolf joins us will we ever get back to normal again and if so what will that look like plus in geeky science I'm asking America is a big decision to make how do we and shelter in place stay tuned and find the science revolution wherever fine podcasts are available you know occasionally I get things wrong I'll make a mistake I'll I'll have a wrong date or wrong city or even a concept that's wrong and you are really good at setting me straight did people call in and say oh wait a minute no wasn't bad it was those or people tweeted to me you know it's we went through that earlier in the week an I you know I appreciate that but I I I I gotta say I don't know about this this guy in Boston WRKO is a Boston right wing radio station a right wing talk station and the host Jeff Kuhner took a call apparently this morning yeah the this morning this is by Travis Gettys over rawstory dot com by the way and Zack the caller said I've been thinking about this thing I was a smoker for years I smoke about three packs a day I never like this new vape thing coming out with the nicotine in it but I have a bunch of friends with big cleaning companies and then Zach goes on to say you know that he had heard an ad on the radio station for disinfecting company and he's wondering if maybe vape pens could be loaded with bleach instead of nicotine so that you can get an infected lungs is quote maybe we could make that Santa make some sort of vape that could help people you know they could atomized chemicals into your lungs and you could blow it out your nose thinking outside the thinking outside the box is what we need to do and no one seems to want to do it I don't know if I'm crazy at which point I would have said you're crazy right there the right wing talk show host said that you're not crazy and bingo you said the word you said the first thank you for that call thinking outside the box that's literally what the president was doing yesterday that's a good chief executive does oh my god we are Fairlawn in Jim Jones territory and Jim Jones only kill a few hundred people Donald Trump is killed over fifty thousand with his incompetence and his lies and is bound lane and is procrastination and and his stealing personal protective equipment from states that are that are melting down with this virus and hiding it someplace presumably give the red states later on it is mind boggling sell yeah let's pick up your phone calls sending those Friday Leon in Gainesville Florida a Leon what's up Hey all thanks for taking my call I tried to call last week but it was busy busy always talk about are the coronavirus and what we can do to maybe get things going sooner I have been watching a Ted X. talk professor from Columbia University teaches physics name's Dave Brenner and he's come up with the technology of what's called far UVC I don't know if you've heard of it or not yeah there's three kinds of UV light a and B. and C. and C. is the kind that is the most destructive it's it's what they use outside things one of our sponsors it's called the queen found dot com they sell a box but you put your phone in and you close the top because if you look at UVC light it can burn your retina but that's that's not correct but this new technology is not solar generated your bank statements lab made its artificial yes I'm talking about is just a very narrow slice of your PC well not in a trade a single stem cell it will not penetrate the ice or defense of the FDA has approved it is being safety gears and there's not a convenience I'm sorry not on human beings I mean this is this is like you know Hey let's be bleach you know a friend of mine up in New York was talking about this he he knew about this the clean phone thing that we've got we were talking about that and and he said you know I can get you the winds on Amazon I'm I'm gonna get some it turns out that those are actually kind of like black light things you know they're designed to make things fluorescent that's not on your eternal under Sir my point is our encourage everybody who's listening now to get to do a search on your chair and go for a it's a ten X. content talk and this guy's name Brenner professor of physics at Columbia University he's developed this technology that only takes a very narrow slice of baguette how we not only have I got that yeah okay I have to check it out I really don't you know I I can't speak to what you're talking about and I don't want to be wandering into science speak about things that might or might not be really dangerous we're not going to vape bleacher Dave in federal way wash and a day what's up not too much time in Hey look I just wanna say ahead of time I don't want to you know be little your intelligence on you know the intelligence community contato I know you know a lot I know you're all we do but I want to capture something before it expires because this is very relevant there was an anecdotal reports earlier that Donald Trump could not really receiving intelligence briefs because he would change the subject what for instance they were doing a briefing on the Indian Ocean in the universe remark on the map right Donald Trump want to talk about how Sri Lanka is actually a part of India but that wasn't the topic are a lot of times you would talk about beach front property you know how good a real estate a country had when that was the topic all right now with these with these briefings on the corona virus like you know where he says you know you can inject UV light into your body and you know everything all the disconnect and crazy stuff do you have a creepy stuff he's been talking about it kind of proves that original anecdotal evidence that Donald Trump just changes the topic to what he prefers now we can debate what you know if it's it's I don't think I said I I I don't think you change it to what he prefers I think he's changing it to what he understands he's always trying to move things into a realm where his limited intellect can deal with it can grasp it so he happens to know some little factoid about India and Sri Lanka probably got it from nobody was thinking about re annexing Sri Lanka right and so he blurts that out because that's the thing that he understands or at least he thinks he understands the same thing with the bleach yesterday forgive my interrupting no no no but it is very very important this is the intelligence community part you know especially since George Bush was president right now a lot of effort is put into all of the effort is put into prioritizing paying for the president to consume and decide upon right and in so so you could argue your country's been blunders in the past Cuban Missile Crisis I will one day center at sugar but you can argue that this stuff is very very boring and you know how can one human being possibly absorb it all but it is important all right so what I'm saying is is Donald Trump but I know for a fact but we've been doing the pandemic stuff since World War two okay I know for a start Donald Trump was given advance knowledge of it all right now he may have chose not to listen but think about it thank about it you know from your father using the intelligence community day I did it for twenty five years Tom I mean for twenty five years I get it all right and I'm not trying to boast entre was not bad you know what I know it can be very boring and tedious work but here's my point if Donald Trump has missed you know miss the briefing on the on the corona virus well she you know eliminated a lot of the specialists that could have given us better but delegates on at all there is a problem is the race is in the in the in the executive branch you know the the National Security Agency and the HHS agency or the DHS agency that both were designed to oversee a pandemic ET shut them down because because Obama had created them yes and this could be our IG I don't mean to be overly dramatic but we could be seeing the beginning of the end right now let me put it this way even when I was walking north maybe the end of life on this earth I mean look when I was no no no no no for trump not paying attention look when I was on active duty North Korea North Korea was already on the brink of collapse all right now if if if it burned out and supposedly total but supposedly Kim Jong moon might die from complications due to a coronavirus yes North Korea collapses all right if North Korea collapses and we're in and then we you know what we've been preparing for for years in humanitarian right to to keep because there will be a mass exodus of the China all right if China and Russia yes if China and Russia allow south Korean U. S. at a you know we Australia Pacific forcing all right into the up to the Yalu River which you would never do before but anyways if they allow it all right this will be trillions and trillions of dollars well you know you might see one day so what this economic stimulus but look at the economy right now we are not going to survive it in India all on a high grade hawking and of life on earth your date but are you saying that this could trigger a nuclear war I mean right now the trump is moving warships into the South China Sea the Chinese are getting belligerent trump is threatening Iran with war I think he wants a war in order to distract us from from what's going on so we can become a real wartime president I don't think it'll work for him but is that you know you said end of life on earth I I don't get what you're talking to each other in a nuclear war no look look alright already the conservatives in America saying that disco corona virus it's a corona virus coop it is a liberal coup against president Donald.
William Prince on 'borrowing from future happiness' to write new album
"Is voice is like the low rumble of thunder storm on the prairie. His songs a glimpse into the heart of a man who's lived through the broken to come out hole on the other side. William Prince is an initial based singer and songwriter from PEGUIS FIRST NATION IN MANITOBA. His just released the much anticipated. Follow up to his Juno. Winning debut album earthly days. His trajectory is taken him from small stages two major concerts and tours all over turtle island and abroad including opening for the legendary Neil young an icon. Buffy Sainte Marie his new album reliever was recorded in Winnipeg in Nashville and is out now. I'm so pleased to welcome. William Prints back to unreserved for an extended conversation today. Hello My friend Rosanna. How are you? You look a little travel where you good. Oh yeah is it The friendly way of saying how terrible I think it's just the hat I lucked out and I found a half that fits my head and I wear it everywhere now. So that's that's the big change. You look fantastic. No thank you thank you. So let's start with the new record. What inspired you most on this album? Oh boy that That starts the conversation years ago You know Reliever was was born in in stages it was written at so many different times. It was written in real time panic. I say for some part of it. It was written halfway through reflection and then finally at the point of revelation. There there's so many different points Throughout this album that I'm really proud of making it through and being here where we are today on the other side and reliever was really just about collecting and documenting the songs. I was writing while I was going through. You know one of the harder times in my life so far so you were going through some stuff the loss of your father the end of your relationship finding your place as a father to your son. Wyatt what does the name Reliever mean to you? Reliever really stems from the idea of course of treatment. Almost an anti an antibiotic in a sense. You Know I. I think of the songs What they've done for me over time dealing with those those things like grief and separation and total change in one eighty of environment from this point of is this working. Is this something I'm going to be able to do? Is there a place here for me? to now being at a place where. I find myself doing this all the time. My responsibility is become to to be a good dad and be good to my family and make art and it's it's really An incredible thing so that was the faith. I was Kinda holding onto borrowing from your future. Happiness is what I say. You know. Having that faith for win the time would come now. And we'd have this record. I'd be passed the things I was working through and Able to celebrate them rather than live in a state of grief reliever was was born in the concept of love to I. I was thinking about how the greatest Major League. Baseball pitchers in the world will throw a few innings until they're retired for the game and the relief pitcher takes over and says I I got this. I thought you know on those days. When we're with our significant others those we care about say we're not throwing the best game and then that other person can kind of take over so is really borne inside baseball? Metaphor that That grew in complexity and I found the title track itself kind of in the middle of everything and it really started to tie the two halves together. The part where I was living in real time making a diary to my son showing him and letting him know where I was during this time. His infancy And then ultimately showing him that though I was going through this really difficult time Your your dad stayed steadfast and resilient and made it through and I hope that's the kind of man Human BEING HE TURNS OUT TO BE IN THE END William the beauty of your lyrics or that you are so vulnerable you give so much of yourself in your music. Why do you share so much with people? WanNa I think it's what we're most in need of Today is the willingness to be vulnerable insincere. You know more than ever. There's more to consume and more to get over faster than it's ever been. I think the things that still exist amongst the human condition are those themes of love and you know making it through the everyday life and Going through those challenges that we will encounter over the course of our individual lives. I came into the term Saunder over the past few years where you sit and imagine that the complexities of every other individual in the world has a whole history just as long just as an in detail just as thorough just as grand as your own and I think that's a lot that's a lot of hard drive space. You know a lot of files out there to pick through and you know there are a lot of them that are similar from person to person and the ones that are easier to deal with me are speaking about my family and I have no problem because this was my way of coping. This was my chance to deal with these things face on was to write about them in real time and do my future self a favor that I knew that I've survived everything up until this moment and I will continue to survive and thrive in the environment that I've created for myself now and I'm that's a huge privilege. That's that's really something so I chose that while I'm here while people are listening. I'm going to give the most honest and forefront representation of what I feel what I what I'm living through and hopes that it. Will you know? Bring US pass this more superficial more artificial age and get us back in touch with with vinyl records and phone calls and and things like that slowing the pace to appreciate. Just how beautiful human condition actually is now earlier? You had said that in creating this album you had to borrow from your future happiness. What did you mean by that? Well it's really all that faith is I think is I. I was going through like you said the the loss of my dad and Estrangement and not really feeling like I was In a place to ever really even have a relationship again. I thought I'd just be an artist and a great dad now just travel and in a low point truth truthfully. I. I don't want to understate. Just how tough things were I went back to to Peguis are? I lived with my mom for a year. You know I I. I worked on the PEGUIS radio to keep my mind from going crazy and the slower days and drove to the city. Every day to see my son is very opposite. A glamorous was quite testing. It's like what have you done? You derailed yourself from A Post Secondary Education to pursue this dream and so borrowing from future happiness. Was this idea that I would look to the future when the darkness breaks knowing that. I think there's going to be a time when I get to play music all the time to be a recording artist and share my story with you know auditoriums Or even town halls even fifty people at a time. I knew that there was part of me. That wouldn't let go over this dream that I was chasing to be here to to do this for a living so I I with the good faith that it'll probably work out. I think it will work out. I believe enough that it will work out. I'll just watch it unfold so that now when we're here when you're here opening for the Neil Young's of the world and and travelling in. It's not normal to be applauded by thousands of people a Week. You know not everybody gets to to have that and it's really sending the message that my music belongs here. My voice is being heard. And that's everything you hoped for as a songwriter. So I'm as happy as I imagined if not more for certain. This home actually sounds Fairly optimistic you seem more rooted. You've gained some wisdom in the last few years. What do you attribute to that confidence like the the difference? Now I I I was joking that When I made earthly days it was like I hope nobody minds that I'm doing this. You Know Jade Bird says the last thing. The world needs is another narcissist so going from that I wonder if anyone will even hear these songs other than my family and myself and I'll drive around with a CD in my car. And finally feel like I did it. I got an album and I was hoping to to make it outside of Manitoba now. It feels like you know we're GonNa go everywhere but the time it's it's all said and done and to have that in my heart to know that there there's a humble audience waiting for a follow up. It gave me the peace of mind to go into the studio with Scott again and Dave and be in Nashville being when pig. Bring these two pieces of the project together and Believe in my songs from the start not waiting for them to be validated. After I I trusted I knew I'm aware of my abilities. And I record songs and play shows. I was trying to prove that so hard for so long and show that I'm you know Just as valid a songwriter artist as anybody else. And now that we're here. I can just focus on bringing about the Best Art. I can create

"Charlie Hill was a legend on the stand up comedy circuit. Almost every indigenous comedian will cite hail as their inspiration their motivation and hand aspiration and even though he passed on in two thousand and thirteen the laughter he created. Lives on hill was a member of the oneida nation of Wisconsin Wisconsin. His first network appearance was on the Richard. Pryor show in nineteen seventy four. He was the first indigenous comedian to appear on the tonight show with Johnny Carson and he also appeared on the tonight show with Jay Leno and made multiple appearances on late night with David Letterman. Here's the legendary Charlie Hill. I did this back in L. A. and they didn't quite get it you know they're not used to seeing is in Hollywood. Everybody wants to tables in a circle and they weren't quite sure you know in a in a heckler and I know that she'd never judge a man by the color it was neck or anything like that wouldn't want to hear their prayer Marica. And why don't you go back. We came room so I can't in his living room last week. I was in Washington. DC WE SEEK. Did he show where members of the American Indian Republican Party. Three in the next gentlemen ever met in my life and then coming out here to Canada airport searched and I resent that via need. You were as an alien. You'RE GONNA hijack a plane anyway. Take me to hope. So I'm sitting on the airlines.

What in your heart art? Gosh inside of action include suicide poverty disease religious persecution and general of land the recorded. That would've picked comedy. Festivals welcomed a Turtle Island showcase in two thousand and five. That was Charlie Hill.
