Got ears? You too can hear Native America Calling.

<<Click the banner above to visit Native America Calling.>>

Wondering what Native Americans think of Johnny Depp playing Tonto in a new film? Well, surf to Native America Calling’s online former broadcasts and find out. Heads up, make sure you’re wearing your satire hat for the “win Depp” show.  There’s an online archive list and summary of several years of broadcasts covering everything from healthcare to water rights  to “matchmaking.” Oh yes, there is  more talk radio in America than the usual media attention beasts bellowing on the sound waves. The discussions on Native America Calling are lively, smart, informative and enjoyable. Harlan McKosato is the show’s host and producer. Listeners are invited to call in and participate in the conversations.

Native America Calling broadcasts live Monday through Friday, 1-2pm Eastern time. 10 am PST.  You can listen online too.

On Monday, February 7, 2011 the topic will be the “State of Indian Education.”  Having blogged my thoughts about the general state of education in America, I’m very interested in hearing this particular broadcast.  

You can view the subjects of this upcoming week’s shows here– http://www.nativeamericacalling.com/

They’re serving everything from Casino Jack to Adapting to Climate Change. And it all gets archived for listening at later dates.

In the Kansas City Metro area there’s only ONE hour a week of radio programming featuring Native American music, news, issues, and people.  Native Spirit Radio airs on www.kkfi.org  hosted by Rhonda LeValdo (Acoma Pueblo),  on Sundays,  5-6pm CST. NSR streams online.

Escape the radio boxes by expanding your listening horizons to Native America Calling.  Sharing your discoveries here is very welcome.

    I believe I’ve heard that Johnny Depp is an actor who really tries to become the role he plays. But doesn’t he have Native American blood in him? I am surprised that he has not already tried to learn about his heritage before this role came up. I wish they would have made this movie some years back when Graham Greene could have played the part.🙂

      Hello Jmjbookblog. Well, it’s a rather odd thing for this movie based on this old television series. Not much real heritage reflected in the old series. I’m very curious just how they intend to present this for modern audiences. Much potential for both humor –and criticism. Hence the satirical take on NAC’s show.
