Jan Michael Looking Wolf to appear LIVE on Tillicum wawa Jan. 13th!!



I'm very excited to announce that one of the best Native American Musicians of our day will appear LIVE on January 13th with me, Shusli Baseler, and Eugene Johnson on Tillicum wawa! Yip, yip, yip!!!

Not only is he a great musician but he's also a great guy who will share about his passion for the Native American flute and the direction that passion is taking him.

I hope he will also talk about the people who have inspired and encouraged him.

Jan Michael Looking Wolf Reibach just last month received Record of the Year for "Breakin Free" at the 2010 Native American Music Awards. He adds this honor to his Flutist of the Year and Artist of the Year awards.

Looks like Tillicum wawa has a slot every other Thursday at 6:00!

This is wonderful news for the Indian folks and their supporters! Thank you, KBOO!

Great Show!


Osiyo, KBOOers!

What fun we had this morning on Tillicum Wawa! Lively discussion and music, chanting and ukelele playing...

Truly, there was a mixture of people! We had a man in his 20's and one almost 80. I loved that a strong native woman led the show with her son sitting in, playing ukelele before he heads off to adventure on the Islands.

John Talley honored us with a rare appearance at the station and told a couple of great stories.

We had a chance to talk with our friends, Iokepa, Hawiian spirtiual leader of the Return Voyage and his wife, Inette a gifted writer and journalist.
