YAI Podcast stands for Young and Indigenous and that’s who we are: tribal youth of the Lummi Nation, original peoples of the land and water now called Bellingham, Washington. In order to try and help our Lummi community stay unified, we have created an outlet for people to express their opinions, voice their ideas and concerns, and share some of the, until now, untold stories of our people. YAI podcast is an attempt to preserve our culture, learn our language, and inspire future generations of youth to believe in and develop their authentic voices.
Young and Indigenous is also for those people outside of our community who would like to learn more about us as Native people. Telling our own story helps us reclaim our narrative and protect our way of life. We are using this platform to bring awareness to the issues happening in our Lummi homeland and in Indian Country today.
