Native Lights: Where Indigenous Voices Shine – Weekly Radio Show
Native Lights is a weekly, half-hour radio program hosted by Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe members and siblings, Leah Lemm and Cole Premo. Native Lights is a space for people in Native communities around Mni Sota Mkoce -- a.k.a. Minnesota -- to tell their stories about finding their gifts and sharing them with the community.
Native Lights – Tadd Johnson’s Gift For Teaching and Advocating
Today we talk with retired professor, former tribal attorney and lecturer Tadd Johnson (Bois Forte Band of Chippewa). Tadd was recently appointed to the University of Minnesota’s Board of Regents, where he is serving the 8th Congressional District and as the first Native person to be a part of the school’s governing body. Tadd talked about how he got to be appointed to the board; what the board does and why it’s important for the school to finally have Native representation and dialogue with tribal nations.
We appreciate all the work Tadd has done for decades and we’re excited to see where his leadership will take the University in the future! Chi-Miigwech Tadd!
