First Voices Radio with Tiokasin Ghosthorse
Nikki Ducheneaux is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, and also Bitterroot Salish from the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes. She is a founder and partner at Big Fire Law and Policy Group, a 100% Native-owned, majority woman-owned law firm that focuses exclusively on federal Indian law. On June 23, Big Fire Law and Policy Group filed a complaint against the Trump Administration, alleging abuse of federal authority to force the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe to dismantle checkpoints that had been set up to screen people for Covid-19 as they were coming onto the reservation.
In the second half-hour, Tiokasin talks with Ed Kabotie, a multifaceted creative from the Tewa village of Khap’o Owinge and the Hopi village of Shungopavi. His creative expressions take the forms of paintings, drawings, silver craft, and multi-lingual musical compositions. Tiokasin will catch up with Ed about his recent and upcoming performances and share a few songs.
