WOJB - Woodland Ojibway Radio

This is a little radio station operating from the Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.Sometimes the program lapses into Ojibway language. It is a small public radio station with a lot of spirit. The do a good job. They do not have enough money or support to run Ojibway culture 24 hours....so they fill out other program sections with all sorts of offbeat public programming sections. One day, a local DJ brought in tapes he made of his Big Band era 78 vinyl LPs. They occasionally offer long songs and segments of good tribal American Indian music.

Attached is an interview with Ojibway elder Harold Frogg. Not many places where you can hear Ojibway elders talking about what is on their mind. This is from the Podcast library.

They interview American Indians. Right now, some important ceremonial leaders have been interviewed about the Arizona sweat lodge event which has become well-known among American Indians. The local American Indians up that way seem angry about what they perceive as the abuse of this purification ceremony. There is almost nowhere else in America where you can hear what voices in the American Indian community are saying.
