First Annual Radio-a-thon
on CKDU 88.1 FM
Friday, July 3rd from midnight to 8 am

There are over one million First Peoples, from dozens of nations, with dozens of languages, living in Canada.

The Voices of our Nations Radio-a-thon is the first-ever collaboration of Indigenous programmers from radio stations in all corners of the country.

Tune-in on Friday, July 3rd from Midnight to 8 am for eight hours of First Nations stories, music and issues, celebrating Aboriginal identity, history and culture.

Topics include land rights, resources, missing and murdered indigenous women, the 2010 Olympics and the 120-year history of Residential schools.

After centuries of land and resource theft, attempts at assimilation and hundreds of missing and murdered women, it is time Indigenous peoples take something back. Join us as we take back the airwaves!

With such guests as Audrey Redman, Arthur Manuel, and many others, join host Irkar Beljaars of Native Solidarity News for this special broadcast on CKDU 88.1 FM in Halifax, on Mi’kmaw territory.

This special broadcast is brought to you by the Native Caucus of the National Campus and Community Radio Association, CKUT fm in Montreal, and the CKDU News Collective in Halifax. For more information, call 494-2585.

Organizer:CKDU Spoken Word Coordinator, 494-2585
