Our program is a production of Koahnic Broadcast Corporation, a Native-operated media center in Anchorage, Alaska." - Native America Calling
Tara Gatewood is the host of this radio show. Gatewood talked with the author for an hour about the last two books in the series, "Her Captive, Her Love" and "Their Land, Their Love: The Return Home". The program invites listeners to call and ask questions. The first 10 callers are given free copies of the books courtesy of Salina Bookshelf. The callers in this interview span from all over the country and the conversation is emotional, informative, and inspiring. We hope you enjoy listening to this as much as we did. We thank Evangeline Parsons Yazzie, Tara Gatewood, everyone at Native America Calling, the callers, and the listeners for making this a great show.
