First Voices Indigenous Radio

January 18

In the first half-hour, Jeannine Hill Fletcher is a constructive theologian whose research is at the intersection of Christian systematic theology and issues of diversity, including gender, race and religious diversity. Her most recent book,"The Sin of White Supremacy: Christianity, Racism and Religious Diversity in America,"was published in 2017 by Orbis Books. Jeannine's other works include: "Monopoly on Salvation? A Feminist Approach to Religious Pluralism,published in 2005 by Continuum, and"Motherhood as Metaphor:Engendering Interreligious Dialogue,"published in 2013 by Fordham University Press.She is Professor of Theology at Fordham University, Bronx, New York, and a board member of the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition, a grassroots social justice organization. In the second half-hour, we present a brief audio montage produced by Nepalese Indigenous media activist and organizer Dev Sunuwar, one of 20 participants in the Global Workshop for Indigenous Leaders (at which Host Tiokasin Ghosthorse also was present) that took place in the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta from December 11-18, 2017. In this montage, you will hear the voices of Indigenous leaders from the Kankuamo community of the Sierra, a pastoral activist from Senegal, Native American activist Ruth Anna Buffalo, representatives from Uganda and Cambodia, and many others talking about their resistance to extractive industries and mass scale development projects in their local communities, putting at risk water and livelihoods across the planet. The running theme for all is the protection of their rivers, as they recorded these interventions along the banks of the River Guatapuri in the Sierra Nevada. We are grateful to Mario A. Murillo, who made this audio available to us on MAMA Radio. Marios broadcasts, which include interviews, commentaries and talks about about current events, politics, social movements, culture and much more from the world we live in.
