Unceded Airwaves Episode March 6, 2017

S2E20 - Indigenous Futurisms

10:57am - 12:02pm

Season 2 episode 20 is here! And it's time for our highly anticipated Indigenous Futurisms episode. This week, Josh K., Mario, Lisa and Mat (by proxy) deconstruct the latest Star Wars film Rogue One. In the second half of the show, Josh G.D. speaks to Tahltan comic artist Cole Pauls.

We ran out of time to play our favourite Indigenous futurisms inspired songs (including Skookum Sound Systems Star Wars Canoe Mix), but managed to play a few artists including Ziibiwan and Willie Thrasher - after we play the Star Wars Rogue One intro. We have Fundrive coming up next week, and our show is looking for a sponsor! Help us continue to make radio by partnering with us!

Thank you to our co-hosts and interviewers Mario Parent, Josh Kioke, and Lisa Girbav for coming in (and big thanks to Mat Andreatta for contributing too). Many thanks to Josh Gabert-Doyon for reaching out to Cole Pauls to contribute to our Indigenous Futurisms episode. Unceded Airwaves on CiTR 101.9FM broadcasts from the traditional, ancestral and unceded lands of the Musqueam people. This show is put together every week by UBC's Indigenous Radio Collective, and we are committed to centering the voices of Native people and offering alternative narratives that empower Native people and our stories.
