First Nation Artists streaming on Vinyl Voyage Radio

Below the picture, you will find a complete list of First Nation Artists streaming on Vinyl Voyage Radio this Thanksgiving. Links are provided as well. Our 4th Annual First Nations Thanksgiving streams from 2pm to Midnight, Eastern on November 28, 2019.

Honoring First Nation Peoples

If you live in North America (or anywhere in this hemisphere, actually) and you are of European extraction, then the land that you are currently living on was at one time the home of a nation. What nation? Use this link to find out what First Nation owned the land you currently live on.

Acknowledging this history should be an important component of Thanksgiving.  After all, Thanksgiving was originally a Native holiday, as old as time itself. Not only that, this continent's First Nation peoples are not historical, they are contemporary. So much of our history is taught as if indigenous people are no longer around. It is important to note that they here. Now. In the present tense.

Today, from 2pm to midnight, we will be doing our small part in acknowledging this history by playing music from contemporary First Nation artists. Listen, and let us know what you think in the comments.

Happy Thanksgiving.

4th Annual First Nation Thanksgiving

For the 4th year in a row, we are honoring First Nations this Thursday during the American Thanksgiving. Since the story of the Pilgrims and the Natives are widely told throughout North America at this time, we feel that it is important to acknowledge the true history of the holiday and pay respect to the Native peoples who, in fact, invented the holiday. "Thanksgiving" may have been new to the Pilgrims, but it was a holiday as old as the sun to those who were living here.

Although Thanksgiving is celebrated in Canada in October, the holiday in the United States is often more tied to stories involving the First Nations. So, we think it fitting to honor this holiday with music from the people who had made their mark on this continent long before the arrival of the Europeans.

From 2 pm until midnight (Eastern), we will be playing a wide variety of music on Vinyl Voyage Radio - from pop to folk, instrumental to spoken word.  All songs and music during this time will be from Native artists in Canada and the United States.

So tune in and listen to the music of North America's First Nation peoples. For more information about the music, visit the website for the Native American Music Awards. They have tons of information for many of the artists you will hear on this day.  Happy Thanksgiving.

Song of the Week - Go Now! from the Moody Blues
