Welcome to the Dine’ Nation! Join a team of youth as they live and celebrate their ancient living culture!
Our youth hosts will take the listener on a journey beyond reservation lines and into the cultural and creative lives of people who are continuing to break down stereotypes.
Among the voices in this episode, you’ll hear Deezhi as she shares a “Day in the Life” audio diary of her Kinaalda (Coming of Age Ceremony). Then, Dahi travels to the Library of Congress in Washington DC, and discovers a deeper connection to her tribe and ancestors.
From contemporary arts to traditional living life ways, youth are continuing to find their culture in today’s modern world.
Indigenous YOUth Nation is a 29-min episode that works to “Celebrate Culture,” “Empower Youth,” “Nourish Knowledge,” “Inspire Inter-generational Dialogue,” and build strong roots for our future generations.
IYN highlights different Indigenous cultures in a radio show made by and for tweens and teens.
Expect to hear the restoration and resilience of Indigenous youth and cultural knowledge.
Indigenous YOUth Nation is produced by Jeneda Benally (Diné) and Gregg McVicar (Tlingit) with the IYN YOUth Team. The program is made possible with generous support from KWMR, The Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop and The American Folklife Center at The Library of Congress.
