Indigenous Peoples Day on the Radio

October 02, 2018

Hands Off Our Mountain!
Indigenous people of Hawaii stand up to protect sacred Mauna.
Indigenous Peoples Day is about honoring Indigenous resistance and celebrating the contributions of Indigenous Peoples all over the world. In this newsletter, we celebrate the activism of Antie Pua Case from Hawaii, and other activists around the world who fight to protect our mountains, rivers, valleys, and our Earth.
One of Antie Pua's callings is defending and speaking for Mauna-a-Wākea, a mountain in Hawaii, which has great cultural and spiritual significance to the Indigenous Peoples of the island. Antie Pua speaks of her passion and activism against proposed development on the mountain. We recognize Indigenous Peoples' contributions to defending Mother Earth as we celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day this October. The program ends with a song by Taino artist Brother Mikey, who produced "Like the Mauna", inspired by the Indigenous People of Hawaii's efforts to protect the sacred Mauna. As always, our programs are free to download and broadcast.
It's time to recognize that celebrating the life of Christopher Columbus is the same as celebrating the erasure of Indigenous existence. IRR Producers Shaldon Ferris and Avexnim Cojti uncover the history of Indigenous resistance to colonization and the "discovery" narrative that perpetuates the celebration of Columbus.
