Every once in a while we encounter someone that makes us stop and think about the world around us. It’s not like listening to an announcer on the radio, or the host of a television news program but an actual in the flesh person who speaks to us in a way that makes us stop what we’re doing and really pay attention. When we meet this kind of person they make us take stock of how we are living our lives and how we should be living our lives.
One such person that embodies this type of inspiration is John Karhiio Kane. John is a Mohawk currently living on the American side of the imaginary line and he goes out of his way to help educate the public concerning the issues of Indigenous peoples.
John hosts two weekly radio shows and he is an expert commentator on Native American Issues which provides him the venue needed to reach the unenlightened. “Let’s Talk Native… with John Kane” airs on WWKB-AM 1520 in Buffalo on Sundays from 9-11PM EST and is streamed live through the internet.
The foundation established through this radio show has led to John guest hosting another radio program in New York City, First Voices Indigenous Radio, WBAI-FM 99.5 airing Thursdays 9-10AM. John’s message is also widely propagated through his well read newspaper column in the Two Row Times. John is quite proud to be a part of our paper and feels that the ability to spread his message through our pages has elevated the number of people he is able to reach.
We reciprocate these feelings, and encourage our readership to fully support John and his radio show. You can donate by making checks payable to Iroquois Promotions c/o and sending them to John Kane, P.O. Box 93, Versailles, NY, 14168
