A Voice for Indigenous Issues, Concerns, Cultures and Customs
Tiokasin Ghosthorse, host and producer

Today many indigenous peoples are still excluded from society and often even deprived of their rights as equal citizens of a state.

Nevertheless they are determined to preserve, develop and transmit to future generations their ancestral territories and their ethnic identity. Self-identification as an indigenous individual and acceptance as such by the group is an essential component of indigenous peoples’ sense of identity. Their continued existence as peoples is closely connected to their possibility to influence their own fate and to live in accordance with their own cultural patterns, social institutions and legal systems.

Indigenous peoples have prior rights to their territories, lands and resources, but often these have been taken from them or are threatened. They have distinct cultures and economies compared to those of the dominant society. Indigenous peoples' self-identification as indigenous is a crucial part of their identity.

Indigenous peoples face serious difficulties such as the constant threat of territorial invasion and murder, the plundering of their resources, cultural and legal discrimination, as well as a lack of recognition of their own institutions.

First Voices Indigenous Radio and Tiokasin Ghosthorse urge you to stay informed and involved in protecting the rights of indigenous people and their culture.
