Join Raven and his guest Maureen Brown, on 3-21-2010 at 5pm on “Make No Bones About It”.

The following commentary may be a senitive one for any younger listeners. There are many stories that are hard to share, boarding schools, forced sterliation, re-location, termiation, and the topic of abortion. Tune in to 89.3 FM and listen to Maureen Brown story. For me Raven, I know in my heart it is through the sharing of our stories true healing comes.

Any views or opinions expressed are solely those of the my guest not “KAOS RADIO 89.3 FM”.

Join Raven and his guest Maureen Brown as she share here story of and decision to terminate her two pregnancies that had a profound negative effect on her. Tune in and hear her profound story.

Maureen Brown is a First Nation, Cree woman who lives in Northern Manitoba . Maureen is a public speaker and main spokeswoman for Northern Connections, a First Nations group who travel internationally to share their faith through cultural expressions. She is also a First Nations advocate and a former elected leader of her community. Maureen was taught growing up that life is sacred, a tenet in her culture. The Creator gives life and He alone takes it. Yet the so called, pre-abortion “counseling” assured her that “it is just tissue,” not a real human being. They lied! These professionals gave her the nerve to go against all that she had learned from the elders about the sanctity of life. Maureen believes that if she had been told the truth about fetal development, she never would have followed through with the two abortions. The guilt and shame associated with abortion is something she can identify with. Maureen’s decision to terminate her two pregnancies had a profound negative effect on her. It is only now that this door to share her story on this experience is opening up for her. Once again, she is amazed with the weave of love, forgiveness, and hope that is emerging from this area of her life. She is now married and a mother of 4, they live in Northern Manitoba Canada.

Raven Redbone say “Thanks” for all your support!

 Many thanks to all of you for your loving support over the last 1.5 years of “Make No Bones About”. Over the past few months we have heard many stories from our local community and beyond. Such guests like Chief Phil Lane Jr, Larry McNeil, Doug Meyer  and many more. With your help it has been a huge success. We have been able to continue to educate, promote, and highlighting all of our ancestral pasts, and make a great contribution to our world.  The support of you the listener, and KAOS 89.3 Radio, I know helped in bringing  my vision to the airwaves which is uniting our human family, coming together of knowledge through the love of our earth,  also more importantly we have successfully given a voice to the First Peoples and the voiceless.

The show is approaching its 2 year anniversary this coming Spring (April 6, 2010). Through the past year Make No Bones about it has reached many new levels. One of which I am really excited about,  and working towards making the show ready for syndication up north in Snohomish County on WSER 90.7 FM public radio.

We have reached out to the world in many ways to tell our stories of our interconnectedness.  It makes me very excited. With your support, feedback given, calling in during pledge, and the many wonderful guests that have either came into KAOS or called in for a conversation have been amazing. “Make No Bones About.” has become a part of our community both local and global. This has happened because of the shared vision, wisdom of our Elders, support of the People in our community, and KAOS 89.3 FM.

Protecting the Sacred


Evening with Eli Painted Crow

Join Raven and his guest Eli Painted Crow on KAOS radio this Sunday, 1-10-2010 AT 5 PM.

COME LISTEN IN TO WHAT HAPPENING WITH  Eli PaintedCrow is a 22 yr. retired Army Veteran who served in Iraq in 2004. A Native American from the Yaqui Nation, grandmother of 8, a mother of 2 sons who both served in the military, she has been called upon by her conscious and her spirit to play and pray for peace.

The vision for the drumming and coming together of women to drum for the peace of the world is from Eli PaintedCrow. We drummed from dawn on Friday continuously until noon on Monday. The drums never stopped. Kaya, the grandmother drum held the drum beat for the entire time. Sometimes there were only a few drummers on site and other times there were several hundred people gathered together. The sense of wonder, power, community, love, sharing and the force behind the prayer for peace was incredible and extremely moving.
