LTN#573 4/12/23; Tekarontake joins LTN to discuss leadership and service to others.

Paul Delaronde stops by the LTN studio for a conversation.


LTN#572 4/6/23; The Vatican is NOT sorry for what they did, but reject the Doctrin of Discovery.

Well! The Vatican did it again. They condemn the actions of others but avoid any responsibility for their own.


Let's Talk Native #571 3/21/23; Sorry for the absence but I'm back now.

I had a surgery that went a little sideways on me and has laid me up for the last two months. Here's my ordeal in detail to explain where I have been.


LTN#570 1/8/23; I Am A Warrior

I read my excerpt from The Mohawk Warrior Society.


LTN#569 11/27/22; Valerie Lambert author of "Native Agency" joins John for an RR broadcast

This was recorded for a Resistance Radio broadcast but it is well worth sharing here for the LTN listeners. Coming from two very different perspectives and attitudes towards the Bureau of Indian Affairs, John and Valerie offer a great look at the agency, now almost completely run by Native bureaucrats.


LTN#568 11/12/22 Indian Residential/Boarding Schools

I cannot emphasize enough the scope and scale of this atrocity committed against Native children. It is almost the entirety of US history. 200 years of Genocide.


LTN#567 9/7/22; Cayuga Nation: FED WRECKED!

The conflict in the Cayuga homelands has raged on for years. At the center of it all is an abuse of authority made possible by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and those who played the Fed Wreck game.


Resistance Radio 9/1/22: Famed Psychologist Philip Zimbardo joins me for my radio show

Famed Stanford Psychology Professor joins me for Resistance Radio to refute certain claims made about him and his work. We discuss Native mascots, stereotyping and racism.


LTN #566 8/2/22; The Pope Apology Tour

He refused to apologize for the Church or take ANY responsibility. Keep in mind, this guy made Junipero Sera a "Saint" and he was responsible for deaths of thousands of indigenous children at his missions.


LTN #565 6/29/22; Deb, Kathy and Crystal.

It's not really breaking a glass ceiling if nothing gets broken! Carrying water for the white male power structure is not change.


#564 - Not All Racists Carry Guns

A white supremacist came to Buffalo to kill Black people. But not all racists carry guns.


#563 Haaland's Boarding School Report

This one gets an F! The real info is pretty anemic. Nothing new and no mention of Genocide.


#562 - No Cannabis Compact

With nearly 100 cannabis dispensaries on Seneca territory alone, questions about what NYS will do when they enter the business remains. →→→→ Like what you hear? Support the show on Patreon! www.patreon.com/letstalknative ←←←←


#561 - Activism: Needed now more than ever!

I heard it said that we don't need to push our kids to be lawyers and doctors. We need to teach them to be activists.


#560 - The New York State of Racism

Governor Kathy Hochul extorted half a billion dollars out of the Seneca Nation this week by freezing all its bank accounts, affecting the livelihoods of every Seneca and every employee, vendor and contractor. She literally strangled the second largest employer in WNY for a ransom payment that she plans to use for the new Buffalo Bills stadium.


#559 - IGRA is Racist and So Is the National Indian Gaming Commission Investigation

A law passed that targets a specific group of people by race to assert control and dominance over them is RACIST by definition and starts from a belief of racial superiority. And that racism continues with the enforcement and oversight of the law.


#558 - The Seneca Gaming Mess

#558 - The Seneca Gaming Mess by John Kane


#557 - 2022 Will Not Be About Reconciliation Over Residential Schools!

We need to document the atrocities but also create the accounting of the losses inflicted on our people through 100 years of "Kill the Indian - Save the Man." Let's not let the Genocide be obscured by the atrocities committed children. Both need to be "reconciled." We need "Restoration of land and autonomy. Not just an apology or payouts.


#556 - Indigenous Land Back and Control In Colombia (Feat. Ervin Liz)

This week, we shift our focus to South America with our guest Ervin Liz of Native Root Coffee. Ervin is a third-generation Nasa indigenous coffee farmer who founded Native Root Coffee to address and correct the inequalities and exploitation of indigenous farmers and coffee bean producers that he witnessed while growing up on his family's farm in Columbia. →→→→ Like what you hear?

#555 - The Residential School Cover-up (Feat. Preston McBride)

Dr. Preston McBride joins John to talk about his research on the genocidal residential school system in the United States. In this episode, we turn our attention away from Canada and focus on the United States with a conversation featuring historian and researcher Preston McBride. Preston is of Comanche and settler colonialism descent. He lives and works on Tongva lands where he is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the USC-Mellon Humanities and the University of the Future Program.
