Community dialogue is important. At 8am every Thursday Voices from the Edge lends a KBOO microphone to informed guests you might not hear anywhere else. With an hour to invest, the call-in format engages listeners in meaningful conversations about crucial issues like racial disparity, government accountability, environmental justice and politics on local, state and national levels. Join lively discussions about concerns that are important to you and our community. Together we’ll make Oregon and our nation a better place for a larger number of those living here.

I'm proud to be a KBOO volunteer & member, supporting community radio and striving to give a voice to the voiceless!
I have been a KBOO member for nearly ten years and began volunteering with John Talley, host of "Indian World" in 2005 as an intern completing my interdisciplinary studies bachelors degree from Marylhurst University.
I am fortunate to be able to consult with John as a radio mentor, friend and Mohawk elder.
I am a Cherokee Nation of Ok enrolled tribal member and I have some Osage and Choctaw in my line. Although I grew up in Ok I have been in the Portland area for long time.
I have ties with NAYA, NICWA, NARA and PPS Indian Education project and other Native American groups.
My interest in producing this show is to connect folks in the Portland and surrounding area for a stronger Native American Community.
