On the August 23rd edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the history of the national parks and Native Americans.

Jeremy Dalmas

  All week long, we've been playing this sound and asking you to guess what it is and where in the Bay Area we recorded it. 

On today's Your Call, we’ll be honoring the passing of native activist, Russell Means, and marking the opening of SF’s annual American Indian Film Festival.  An Oglala Sioux from the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, Means was a fearless leader of the American Indian Movement in the 60s and 70s, and led controversial actions including the occupation of Wounded Knee in 1973.  How does his legacy affect native activism today?  Join us at 10am Pacific or post a comment here.  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
