“The Scoop” on “Make No Bones About It” with Barbara Elk, Samantha Elk. August 11th, 2019 4-6pm

“The Scoop”

As a Dakota (Sioux), originally stolen from her People at the age of 5, Barbara Elk has sought to find the Truth of who she is, who her People are and seek out others who have also endured and survived the infamous Canadian 60s Scoop Program. 

Despite a tumultuous childhood of foster homes, a children’s home and two failed adoption homes, she has raised two children, became a writer and a successful model and spokesperson.

Today, she resides in Florida with her husband, Jon and is close to her adult children, Samantha and Jack. She keeps herself connected to the Indigenous community by participating in the yearly Florida Indian Youth Program, an intensive two-week camp program for teens who participate in scholastic, cultural and social events all designed to introduce them to higher education. 
Sam is an amateur writer, blogger, Youtuber and new to the podcast world. From the Philadelphia area, to the Evergreen State and now to Florida, Sam is fully aware of how culturally diverse this country is with so many interesting individuals who have their own stories to share and tell.
Sam took a three year break from college to figure out life but will be returning this coming Spring. In the meantime, starting a show with her mother seemed like a good opportunity for the both of them to get more connected with other Indigenous folks and document the issues facing our communities.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

As a multimedia artist, I weave poetry, photography, film, and audio components into my work in order to express creative visions that address social issues. It is vital my role as an artist that I represent and advocate for earth and humanity in an effort to stimulate action. As a photographer, I approach photography with a humanistic sensibility in order to discuss and address important social issues especially dealing with the border between the USA and Mexico.

I write poetry to address these troubling issues and to bring a vocal element to my views. I then roll the poem into paper beads, which allows me to transfer the words on paper into energy and action.

Each bead becomes a prayer to honor the word and the subject of the poem. This process provides me an opportunity to connect with my purpose as an artist and to further the changes that I hope will take place in the world.

Raye Zaragoza on Make No Bones About It. May 19th, 2019 5pm

Raye Zaragoza is an award-winning singer-songwriter who carries an acoustic guitar and a message. Her quiet yet powerful song “In the River,” written in response to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota, resonated strongly with listeners and went viral in late 2016, garnering half a million views on the video, national media coverage, and a Global Music Award and Honesty Oscar. 

 

Raye’s debut album, Fight For You (independent, 2017), displays her compassion, dedication to justice and equality for all, and keen eye for the seemingly small daily moments that become our most meaningful memories. About the record, Raye says, “This album is about finding yourself and finding your voice. It’s about maturing and realizing that you can make a difference if you so choose.” 

 

Writing about social issues comes naturally to Raye. “As a woman of color in America, social issues are things you deal with and see every day of your life,” she says. “I write about my experience and oftentimes my existence has been laced with injustice.”

 

Raye performs her music all over the United States as well as across Europe, where she spent five weeks touring in summer 2017. Her music has been featured on Billboard and Democracy Now! and on numerous lists of the best modern-day protest songs, including those by Paste Magazine, What Culture, and Overblown. She has also performed live sessions for Paste, Daytrotter, and FNX. 

 

At SXSW 2018, Raye spoke about her loyal fanbase and maintaining an independent career on a panel entitled “Serving the Sacred Bond” hosted by PledgeMusic. This summer, she joined Dispatch and Nahko and Medicine for the People on their Summer Tour, which included dates at Red Rocks and two nights at Central Park Summerstage.
