Tribal Voice Radio brings Native language, traditions to Web
Condensed by Native Village

Alaska: Tribal Voice Radio is now on the air.

The online station recently started broadcasting from Juneau. It was set up by the Central Council Tlingit & Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska. The goal is to share their  language, stories and traditions with listeners around the world.

"The reason why we have this set up at a table here is because when you go over to an elder's house or a storyteller's house, you sit at the table and you talk," said Simon Roberts.

The station sent out hand-held recorders to interview Native elders, artists, dancers and drummers.

CCTHITA is the tribal government for 26,000 Tlingit and Haida Indians worldwide. As a sovereign entity, they have a government to government relationship with the U.S. The Council's headquarters is in Juneau, Alaska.
