Resistance Radio with John Kane 7/28/22; Yeah! That Pope thing.

7/28/2022
What a mockery it was to place a headdress on this guy's head. And NO! He didn't apologize for the role of the church or the clergy in the abuse and genocide of Canada's "residential schools."

7/14/2022
If a morally bankrupt organization like the Washington NFL team can change its race-based name, why can't all these little white towns with their little white schools do the same?

Duration:00:52:49

Resistance Radio with John Kane 6/23/22; Cambridge Loses Its Appeal

6/23/2022
No. Not Cambridge, Mass. Cambridge, NY; my home town. The school board appealed to State Supreme Court to overturn a ruling by the State Education Commissioner forcing the school to retire its "Indians" name and mascot.

Resistance Radio with John Kane 6/16/22; Your history is not ours!

Duration:00:55:21

Resistance Radio 6/9/22; Is That Racist?

6/9/2022
After the killing of 10 Black people by a white supremacist in Buffalo, NY; there is plenty of talk about racism. But if we reduce racist acts to only acts of violence and hate, we are missing the breeding grounds of racism. If we only see victims of racism as Black, we are missing what white supremacy really is. We need to spell out just what racism is and what acts are racist acts.

Duration:00:54:35

Resistance Radio 6/2/22; Black White Supremacists

6/2/2022
While I don't believe people of color can be racists, that comes from the fact that racism is about power and is institutional. But people of color sure can support white supremacy, especially if that white supremacy has shined well on them.

Duration:00:54:09

Resistance Radio 5/26/22; The Lottery

5/25/2022

Duration:00:56:32

Resistance Radio 5/13/22; Deb Haaland’s Boarding School Report

5/12/2022
Sorry but this one gets an F. Nothing new or revealing, just some early superficial reduced numbers, lots of "cultural assimilation and more commitment to language revitalization. No talk of land restoration or recognizing our autonomy and distinction.

Duration:00:55:36

Resistance Radio 5/5/22; Our guest is Leon Siu of the Hawaiian Kingdom

5/5/2022

Resistance Radio with John and Regan 4/28/22; That is NOT a seat at the table!

4/28/2022
Photo ops, public comment hearings and political appointments are NOT a seat at the table. "Consultation" is NOT consent. The UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples calls for "free, prior and informed consent" on matters by the state affecting Native people; NOT just checking a box in a rigged process.

4/13/2022
On the the Pope's apology for the Doctrine of Christian Discovery? APOLOGY NOT ACCEPTED! As for Deb Haaland? We are still waiting for that seat at the table. Please prove me wrong and do the right thing on this Seneca gaming dispute with NYS.

Duration:00:53:48

Resistance Radio with John Kane 4/7/22; Are we defined by the labels placed upon us?

4/7/2022
Many words placed on us have specific meaning even if we don't use them that way. "Indigenous Peoples" is an expression framed in colonialism and for some it means the descendants of the people who predate colonialism. But I am NOT just a descendant of those original people; I am of one of those original people.

Resistance Radio with John and Regan 3/31/22; The New York State of Racism!

3/31/2022
Governor Kathy Hochul extorted half a billion dollars out of the Seneca Nation 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.

Resistance Radio 3/24/22; Kevin Prego of the NY Indian Council on the program.

Resistance Radio with John and Regan 3/17/22; The Doctrine of Christian Discovery IS the origin story of Critical Race Theory

3/17/2022
We need to start at the beginning but don't think for a minute that we suffer today only from the lingering effects of old racist laws. They are STILL being passed today and both the laws are racist and the enforcement and oversight of them are racist.
