Happy Winter!

When and if I return to live radio again my show will change a bit. It will change from “Make No Bones About It -Quest for the Truth, to “Make No Bones About It -Time of the Human Being.” I have always been an Allie to both to the Peoples, and to our Mother the Earrh. That will never change. I am a human being first. Tired of all the fighting and lateral violence. We are all here to bring Unity to Earth. This radio program and my life has always been inspired by the Spirit of John Trudell. This quote stuck in my mind tonight …
“We must go beyond the arrogance of human rights. We must go beyond the ignorance of civil rights. We must step into the reality of natural rights because all of the natural world has a right to existence and we are only a small part of it. There can be no trade-off.” -John Trudell
Thinking about my dear Uncle Eddie too. “Time is running out. If we don’t do something now we’ve accepted what is their realism not our reality or our real truth, this might be the last generation as we know it. Get up and get going” -Eddie Little Crow
I invite you to Get up and get going. Uncle says “ Be kind, Be caring, Be loving, and help where help is needed. And it will be okay.” 2022 my prayer is to really change how we think. Time of victim is over and Time of Human being returns.
“ Human being rise up remember who you are.”-John Trudell

Remembering Joanne Shenandoah

You will be so missed. Prayers up for your journey and prayers to your family.

Rest in Power Uncle Hank Adams

Sad day in Indian country. Another great one heads home to the land of the ancestors. Thanks for everything Hank! You will be seriously missed! Prayers up to the family!

Winter Solstice
Been up with the many across our universe sending out prayers and messages of thanksgivings. As this year is rapidly coming to a close the question that comes into my thoughts are “ Are we all willing to work together through love and kindness to put a stop to whats coming and change the direction of our collective future.” We need to dig deeper for the truth if we all intend to survive. Ask yourself do you want to live as Creation intended or exist as the people in authority want us to. Quite frankly as slaves. Meaning only exist enough to fuel their systems of death. I pray everyday for liberation for us all of a system that truly does not give a shit whether we live or die. If 2020 did not open your eyes to what is really going on I am not sure what will. My continued prayers for us all on this journey. I pray to the holys everyday for their love, guidance, protection and continue clarity of stay in the prayer we got this. Much love to you all. Let us truly work together in 2021 so we all can live.
Waiting on an angel,
Raven Redbone

“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.
