Vote (If You Want To & Can)
"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

"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

"turtle island" Discussed on Unreserved
"Learning our way when which is how we say our original language is is so important for me and other young Navio Mahela people. That's how we describe ourselves in our own language. It's not cre- it's nausea. NATO which is people over the four directions or for bodied human beings which describes in our history on Turtle Island when are people came together after a great flood that was in this land so it gives insight into the historical context and timeline of events on turtle island before that we were everybody was called is seen a walk which is the original human beings and after this great event then all of these different nations emerged emerged from that so because people my age and I'm GonNa give my age away but late thirties I was the oldest this person on the amazing race Canada at the end because people my age and younger in our in my community in particular in many indigenous nations winds across Canada are among the first cohort or group of people who don't speak our language fluently. There is a huge you pressure on us to retain our languages for future generations and learn it as quickly as possible while also maintaining a life in the twenty first century and having a job and being successful in doing all of these things so it's very stressful to there's a lot of pressure on our shoulders others to do this because our language speakers are getting fewer and fewer although Nah Nah Nah he always win has five dialects across the land and there are many thousands of language speakers the retention of it and the transfer of it to the next generation is something that's hugely important so very near and dear to our heart we we do many things to try to learn and maintain our languages coming to treaty six territory settler too. I'm from this land. You know I'm that's how we call ourselves in their language means. People are relatives are up here. They call themselves. DNA and our languages are like they're not identical but they're the same language group they on exactly you know very similar and it's also connected to Apache and so the process of learning cree for me has been a couple of things one of them is its utility because I'm in another other nation. I'm in Canada so I have to like learn and abide by all those rules but I'm married to an annual person and so I have to learn and abide by those IOS rules as well because there's a different legal system that governs our lives and so- languages is out of necessity for that and it's fun but it's also also interesting to know what part of my psyche and my body and my spirit is opened by learning and connecting to the cree language.

"RV a at the Virginia warmer. Mazing event coming up. It's called great war. Great warriors. And it is a special program all about native American soldiers who served during World War One. Remember that was the great war. Now is going to be the war to end all wars until the the next war to end all wars came along some amazing contributions on the part of a native Americans November as I understand. It is native American heritage month and power tan. Red cloud Owen member of the chicken Hamady tribe himself a decorated veteran. Volunteer down to the Virginia war memorial is is joining us now because he's going to be front and center for this big event. Power tan. Thank you for being here. Thank you for having me. I tell me a little bit about what we're going to learn for this. With this presentation. Great war. Great warriors. Well, mostly I would like to discuss about the native Americans role in defending this great country of ours. What we call turtle island. That's just a term we use because from a mess, you know earth. Came in and on the back of a turtle. So we all all the United States, and what will be talking about is their contributions, but native peoples our contribution Dern will want one at a time that they were not considered citizens. So that's kind of ironic that they went and served to protect the country that less than a hundred years ago. You know? Tribal lands. You know, but they still want it to serve they still wanted to protect. They still wanted to carry on a warrior traditions. Wow. So in some ways, I would dare say that those men who went to serve frankly demonstrated a little more love and affinity for this nation than this nation was returning to them. I would say so. Yes. So let's talk about some of the examples. I know one of the things you're going to talk about as I understand it Choctaw code talkers. Absolutely. Yes. They were the when we when we hear about code talkers. Of course, we refer back to the name, which you call the Navajos Navajo. Yeah. They were pressed into service during World War Two. And they were a lot of them that were chosen to do this. This was this was taken on early in World War. Well, not early, but especially about halfway through the war. You know, they decided to use those coach talking from the novel hope because it was not a written language, right? And so it was during World War One as well. Also saw her. These two follows talking a later tongue. And he said, hey, what's debris, you're talking and through much talking after that they were kind of freight to answer because back home their children were being their mouths are being washed out with soap because they were not allowed to teach. They're not allowed to talk to made of language. That's right. So after some discussion, they they said, this is our line was this is what we speak Choctaw. And then he got the idea. Is there anybody here that does that as well? And he says we got some people out in headquarters do that. And so hasn't called headquarters on a landline? They asked him a question in English when Choctaw went back to English and co talk was born. Wow. A lot of people don't realize this happened in a lot of later part of World War One thousand nine hundred eighteen and the Navajos came, of course, back turn back in World War Two during the forties. I found it fascinating. I I must tell you that. I am. I don't know of student would be the right word, but I have spent a lot of time trying to learn about the native American population, and the culture, and I I can remember being out in in window rock in the seat of the nomination. And listening to the radio, and it it to me. It was fascinating. Because it gave a little a little insight into I guess how things were conducted by the as you say, the Navajos code talkers. Because there were it was almost sounds. I had no idea what was going on except during commercials when there would be a sentence or two sentences. I didn't understand punctuated with the phrase Chevy Tahoe. And something like that. And I thought, wow, this, you know, it just it blew me away that here we have an entirely different language in the United States. And the vast majority of us have no idea what it is. Right. Right. Yeah. Language, and there are over five hundred. Laotians of native people. So you have over five hundred dialects as well. Well, you know, other code talkers came along. You know after the Choctaw they were Hopi Cheyenne. Of course, you know, we talked about. Yeah. From Kyle was they were SU they would all different tribes. And they will also pressed into the service because World War Two original twenty nine and then expanded up to into four hundred four hundred sixty code talkers during World War One. They only had those nineteen. How a tan red cloud Alwyn is joining us. He is going to educate all of us on Tuesday, November twenty seven from six insulated is a free program.

"turtle island" Discussed on Circle Round
"I'm Rebecca sheer welcome back to circle round today. Our story is called turtle island. When we left off little muskrat had taken a dive into the water, she was seeking soil to rebuild the world after a big flood to other animals otter and beaver had already tried it. They were strong swimmers, but both critters had come up short. So when teeny tiny muskrat volunteered otter and beaver worked too hopeful. Can you believe that Wimpy thing believes she can save the entire world Polly's Higham, totally with you autre? Did you see how slowly she was going? She will make it ten feet down before she has a bus backup for breath. I mean, what does she think she is doing? I don't know what she thinks. She's doing. But I sure as had no what she is doing a. Yeah. What's making a fool of herself? But why saw things differently patients friends? We shouldn't be so quick to. Little muskrat may vary will surprise us old the animals waited for muskrat to return. They waited for one day that they had for autre then two days they had for beaver, but still no sign of muskrat otter and beaver rolled their eyes. What did I say if I couldn't do it with my extensive diving experience, and I couldn't do it with my superior strength and swimming skills. There's no way muskrat can succeed turtles smiled. That's my friends. Succeeds isn't about experience the stream the animals waited another whole day and another whole night as the chances of muskrat returning looked slimmer and slimmer tensions got higher and higher. Get that big pedal of tail off of me will I would offer if you weren't taking half my space weights 'Second as the Pickering continued a small ripple formed in the water. Turtle was the only one who noticed any kind of deal like that. Stope clip. She gestured toward the water. Otter and beaver shut their mouths and peered over the side of the log what did they see floating on the surface of the water, but muskrat she was barely breathing. Turtle.

No one was getting along the treated one another so poorly. They argued about who owned what that's my fish. Are you kidding? That was my fish trap. They insulted each other. You're the slowest person I've ever seen. No, your the slowest person I've ever seen. You are. No, you are as they gossiped. Like there was no tomorrow. Can you believe how selfish use he hunted all afternoon on someone else's hunting grounds? Then brought everything back to the village and shared it with his family as if he'd caught it on his own land. It was chaos kitschy Manitou had a strong helper named Thunderbird one day. The great spirit told Thunderbird. Heard. It was time to start over to cleanse the earth and get rid of all this bad energy. But kitschy Manitou wanted those who were good or at least trying to be good to be saved. Thunderbird? Do me this favor lift Joe wings and take flight? Give a tap to all those who are are Monis, and peaceful and tell them to get ready for a big flood urge them to build rafts and boats and prepare to swim one week from today, the great brains will begin to full so Thunderbird did as she was told a week later. Sure enough, the rains began to fall and fall and fall. Soon. The land was flooded. The people saved by Thunderbirds warnings stayed in their boats and on their rafts once the rain stopped a group of animals climbed up onto a single log in the middle of the water. There was a venturous autre wets up folks that was some rain eager beaver. Sure was what a close one scrappy muskrat.

I'll be back before you can say to shakes of an otters tail off lifted her paw and gave the other animals a high five then she leapt off the log and dove into the water with a splash beaver turtle and muskrat watched otter swim deeper and deeper soon her slender furry body had disappeared completely minutes past then hours, then an entire day the animals were beside themselves with worry until. Well, the good news as I'm back. But the bad news is I couldn't find any earth, I dove again, and again and just never reached the bottom. I'm willing to try one more time, but I'll need to rest first turtle cocked her head to one side. Thank you for trying to. I'm sure I speak for everyone. When I say, I'm glad you're okay.
