I’m very excited to let you know that I’ve recently begun working as the host of the online show Got Something to Say? for Real People’s Media. Real People’s Media is a grassroots media network that produces audio, video and written stories from an Onkwehon:we perspective. The aim of my show is to give our people a chance to be heard on the issues that are important to them. So far we’ve discussed issues concerning Native housing on reserve, heard from Seneca water protectors who went to Standing Rock, and discussed the use of medicinal marijuana to treat illnesses and combat opioid addiction.
I believe that every person is given a voice. For us Native people who have been kept down and silenced for so long, it is time to let our voices be heard. My show is a place where you can hear real people talking about real issues. So, if you’ve got something to say, I want you to come and sit by my side and tell me what’s really going on in your life. And if you’re interested in sponsoring my show, please get in touch!
