This week, we bring Colom­bian activist, researcher and com­mu­ni­ty orga­niz­er Manuel Rozen­tal back to the air­waves to con­tin­ue his talk from last week. Manuel has been involved for four decades with grass­roots polit­i­cal orga­niz­ing with youth, Indige­nous com­mu­ni­ties, and urban and rur­al social move­ments. Manuel con­tin­ues his update about what’s hap­pen­ing in Colom­bia. There con­tin­ues to be an alarm­ing increase in the num­ber of Indige­nous peo­ple being mur­dered there; and Manuel brings us the lat­est news, his obser­vances and analy­sis of the ongo­ing and con­stant­ly evolv­ing sit­u­a­tion with reports of Indige­nous peo­ple (includ­ing chil­dren) being tor­tured and mur­dered dai­ly, a sit­u­a­tion that Manuel says is worse and worsening.

To close out this week’s show, Tiokasin wel­comes back Bryan Nurn­berg­er, founder and exec­u­tive Direc­tor of Sim­ply Smiles, Inc., a not-for-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cat­ed to pro­vid­ing bright futures for chil­dren, their fam­i­lies, and their com­mu­ni­ties. Bryan found­ed Sim­ply Smiles, Inc. in 2003. He grad­u­at­ed from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Col­orado in 1999 with a B.A. in his­to­ry. In the few years after col­lege and before found­ing Sim­ply Smiles, Bryan worked as a moun­tain climb­ing guide, hiked the entire Appalachi­an Trail, lived with monks in Greece, and worked with sug­ar cane cut­ters in the Domini­can Repub­lic. In 2013, he was giv­en the Lako­ta name Cante Waste Wicasa, which means Kind Heart­ed Man. Bryan lives with his wife, Kris­ten, and their dog Chip in South­port, Con­necti­cut. Bryan will be talk­ing about the Sim­ply Smiles Chil­dren’s Vil­lage, which recent­ly opened at the Cheyenne Riv­er Lako­ta reser­va­tion.
