Designed in partnership with Haskell Indian Nations University, the Hall Center for the Humanities, and the University of Kansas’s departments of Indigenous Studies, History, and Journalism, this conference will focus on how audio media, from radio to online audio clips to podcasts, have historically been and continue to be a tool for political activists, journalists, and cultural stewards in Indigenous communities across the Midwest.
It will feature keynote presentations by Mark Trahant, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and editor of Indian Country Today, and Rebecca Nagle, journalist, activist, and host of the podcast This Land.
Join us for a 2-day Zoom mini-conference that explores Indigenous American audio journalism, from radio to podcasts and the future of audio media. Featuring nationally and internationally renowned Indigenous podcasters, broadcasters, producers, editors, and media scholars. Free and open to the public.
