Food Security in Indian Country

Sean Cruz will be with Tillicum Wawa: Voices of the People tonight (June 7) from 6-7pm to discuss food security in Indian Country. Food and hunger are serious issues in Native communities on and off the reservation and we need to find the best workable solutions to deal with this issue.

So join Tillicum Wawa for an interview and discussion of food, hunger, and health in Indian country.

If you're listening, you're part of the conversation.

Tillicum Wawa: Voices of the People airs the first and third Thursday of  every month and is Rhonda "Shusli" Baseler-Johnson (mom) and Eugene Johnson (pop) on the radio station of KBOO, 90.7fm in Portland, Oregon. We can be found on facebook and e-mailed at

Please note that Portland is 9 hours behind South Africa.  That means if you plan on listening to the live broadcast online you should tune in at 3am Friday morning (June 8).

Update (June 8)

John Schofield of the Winnemem Wintu joined us at Tillicum Wawa: Voices of the People, in a discussion of the War Dance they held on the McCloud River a couple of weeks ago to protect their coming of age ceremony from folks who have no respect for such events. He also gave information on how people can help which can also be found at their website:

We also talked with Sean Cruz about food security in Indian country, from hunger to obesity, diabetes and other health issues, the history and current issues, and the work he is doing in creating a Native American food co-op.
