First Person Radio, Weds, Sept 14: ROBERT DESJARLAIT: Ojibwe Artist-Manoomin Advocate - KFAI FM90.3/106.7/Streamed @KFAI.org

Robert Desjarlait is Ojibwe-Anishinabe from Red Lake, Minnesota. He is a co-founder of Protect Our Manoomin – a Minnesota Anishinaabe grassroots organization that informs and educates on mining and its effects on manoomin. DesJarlait is involved as a facilitator for White Bison Wellbriety groups in the Twin Cities. He is a journalist and has written for The Circle Newspaper. He is also a member of the University of Minnesota Council of Elders.

First Person Radio's Laura Waterman Wittstock with Andy Driscoll get an update on the wild rice and other highly sensitive environmental issues threatening the survival of wild rice in the Upper Midwest ricing areas in Minnesota. Wild Rice - Mahnoomin - is one of the sacred foods of the Anishinabe. It has been harvested by environmentally protected processes for centuries by the Dakota and Anishinabe peoples.

HELP US BRING YOU THESE IMPORTANT DISCUSSIONS OF COMMUNITY INTEREST – PLEASE DONATE to CivicMedia HERE!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Most of you who see our announcements and hear our shows may not really know what KFAI is about deep down – at least not all of it. As a community-based station – YOUR station, to be sure – we’re made up of about five staff and a few hundred volunteers – including all of us programmers and producers, etc. None of us are paid.

We’re your basic nonprofit – and we survive and thrive on contributions from people and foundations, etc., but, like all nonprofits, we have a governing board and a mess of important committees who all toil in the background to keep us a viable operating radio station as well as a solvent nonprofit.

This week, we bring you inside KFAI and give you a chance to hear about us and ask questions of a few of the key people who help make KFAI tick, usually well out of the limelight, but willing to devote time and energy – and money, of course – to keep us going.

What you may not know is that you, too, could be a part of this crew and we’ll let our board and committee activists talk about what’s really needed around here and the opportunities you have to help us out.

TTT’s ANDY DRISCOLL chats with four of our most active members, including our board’s chair – and we encourage you to get active with KFAI (and CivicMedia).

GUESTS:

JOEL ZIMMERMAN – Chair, KFAI, Fresh Air, Inc. Board of Directors/Executive Committee

ZUHUR AHMED – Board Member and Host of KFAI’s Somali Voices
