Indigenous Peoples Movement

On January 10, 2013, WBAI New York's Tiokasin Ghosthorse of First Voices Indigenous Radio interviewed Public Good correspondent John Schertow, editor and publisher of Intercontinental Cry (IC) magazine, about the world indigenous peoples' movement and the Idle No More campaign in Canada. Discussing his latest publication, Indigenous Struggles 2012: Dispatches From The Fourth World, Schertow highlighted some of the hot spots around the world, where indigenous nations are challenging modern states to abide by international law.

On February 7, 2013, Jay Taber, IC columnist and contributing editor of Fourth World Journal, joined Ghosthorse and Schertow in discussing the history of the world indigenous peoples' movement, and the redistribution of power now taking place between indigenous nations and modern states. Noting the forthcoming World Conference on Indigenous Peoples, scheduled for September 2014 at UN headquarters in New York City, Taber emphasized the vital role indigenous media like First Voices and IC -- along with indigenous think tanks like the Center for World Indigenous Studies -- play in making the struggle visible.
