First Voic­es Radio” digs deep into our 30-year-old archive. The words of the late John Trudell are from 1980 but his obser­va­tions have stood the test of time and still ring true. John (19462015) was a poet, a fight­er for Native Amer­i­can rights, an agi­ta­tor, and many oth­er things. But if you were to have asked him which of these descrip­tions best suits him he would have refused to be pinned down. Actu­al­ly I don’t con­sid­er myself to be any of those things. They’re things that I do but they’re parts of me. They’re not the total.” Indeed, Trudell was the com­plex sum of all that he saw, endured and accom­plished dur­ing his 69 years, a time when he expe­ri­enced more than most peo­ple might in sev­er­al life­times.
