Rhonda has also conducted interviews with American Indian professors, writers, and musicians including George Primeaux, Dr. James Riding In, the late Vine Deloria Jr., Mark Trahant, and more. At the half hour she reads a “Native News” segment in Indian Country, the only place you will hear news stories specifically concerning American Indians.

  • Living Voices, a short-segment audio series in English and Spanish featuring profiles of Native Americans and Native Hawaiians today, can also be heard occasionally during Native Spirit Radio. Living Voices is a joint production of the Community Services Department and the Film and Video Center of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian.
