Our Guest today on Morning Line was Ronald Spatz, editor of the Alaska Quarterly Review.  He shared that Shaawatke’é’s Birth, a short film produced for Alaska Quarterly Review's 35th anniversary celebration, is now available on YouTube. 

"Shaawatke'é's Birth is the film version, in Tlingit and English, of a poem published Alaska Quarterly Review by Emily Wall and X'unei Lance Twitchell. "Shaawatke’é’s Birth" is about the birth of a Tlingit child as well as an origin story. It is ultimately a story about how important language is to sustaining a culture and cultural identity."

  Sacramento Knoxx is an Ojibwe/Chicano artist from southwest Detroit. Knoxx blends electronic and hip-hop styles of music with Indigenous, Mexican, blues, and jazz roots. Growing up, he had a sense of split identity, not entirely fitting in with the Mexican or Native communities. When Knoxx entered the hip-hop scene, he found a home for his voice. Utilizing multi-media elements to create both live and digital works, he conveys a message of healing and motivation to native and diverse communities worldwide.

This morning on KNBA, the first in the series of radio stories aired - but attendees to the community event and panel discussion Friday evening got a sneak preview as well as to hear the producers' views and challenges on the production. 

Daysha Eaton and Brian Adams presented on stage at the Anchorage Museum, showing photographs and explaining the reporting process, as well as told an origin story of sorts, wherein Daysha and Brian covered the story of protestors at Standing Rock, and yet did not meet there.
