First Voices Radio -- WBAI NYC
By Liz Hill, producer First Voices Radio
|Tiokasin Ghosthorse, Cheyenne River Lakota|
In 2013, after months of planning and at the request of the now late Russell Means, James made the arrangement for the first donated Cold Fusion device from America be given to The Russell Means Library for the Lakota Nation and for Russell Means. More information can be found at www.coldfusionnow.org and www.truthout.org. More information about James Martinez is at www.JamesMartinezMedia.net.
Tiokasin’s second guest is Dwaine Perry, Chief of the Ramapough Lunaape Nation located in Mahweh, New Jersey. Chief Perry has a long history of advocacy and has sat with elders and Indigenous leaders in the Himalayas, the Andes and throughout North America, seeking and coalescing the seeds of unity and truth remaining in the colonized mind. He champions human rights today, focusing primarily on issues concerning the Ramapough Lunaape Nation and the Indigenous community at-large.
Chief Perry's journey to Standing Rock last year resulted in the establishment of the Split Rock Sweet Water Camp in Northern New Jersey where the people have been met with much the same hostility as those at Standing Rock. Recently, Chief Perry has called for all peoples in the New York region to stand united against all forms of environmental genocide, greed and avarice. Find out more at the Split Rock Prayer Camp Facebook page.
