I am scheduled to be part of a discussion on Native America Calling, the national American Indian broadcasting corporation, today at 12:00 Central Time. Check here for station affiliates in your state. (It is part of the Koahnic Broadcasting Corporation, out of Anchorage, Alaska. It is a non-profit.)
Here are the Oklahoma Stations, all Central Time:
KCNP FM 89.5 Ada
KGOU FM 106.3 Norman
FM 97.9 Ada
FM 103.1 Siminole
KROU FM 105.7 Oklahoma City
The discussion is about the Washington Redskin team name, moniker, and presumably, the team mascot.
Chief Zee, a Redskins enthusiast, making a name for himself, courtesy the American Indian.
I may get a chance to offer some important facts in the issue. The other guests are Suzan Harjo and Bill Means, so, I can’t be sure of equal time. It’s worth a try, however. “Seems Like Old Times.”
Interesting thing is the fact that Washington, DC’s mayor, Vincent Gray, is black, and the city is well over 70% black. The Redskins team is predominantly black as well, with their famous freshman quarterback, RGII. I wonder if NAC plans to make that part of the discussion.
At this point, feminist Indian woman are the main support of the anti-Indian mascot drive, weak though perpetual as it is.
We’ll see. Wish me luck.
