Believe What You Like But Know What You Must

People are free to be consumed with contemplating their existence, their origins, the origins of the universe, supreme beings, controllers of destiny or anything else. But solving "the Great Mystery" is neither a requirement of being Ohnkwe Ohnwe nor does it provide a path to righteousness. I maintain that spirituality does not require faith or the leaps that faith requires but rather awareness. If it helps to believe that "God has a plan" and we just must have faith that "He" knows what "He" is doing, then walk that path. My interest is in taking the mystery out of life by pointing to the obvious that is ignored everyday in the midst of fanatical ideology and the sometimes not too subtle influences of promoting beliefs over knowledge. I have said it before: “beliefs are what you are told, knowledge is what you experience”. I support a culture that prepares us to receive knowledge and to live a life with purpose. I am certainly not suggesting there is only one way to do that.

"Let's Talk Native...with John Kane" Makes a Big Move


On 9/11, after a full day of remembrances, prayers, dedications and commemorations, "Let's Talk Native..." will take to the airwaves on a new frequency. LTN will debut on WWKB 1520AM at 9 pm on Sunday, September 11th. KB1520 is a legendary station from the AM rock and roll days. It's 50,000 watt signal has been picked up on US Naval vessels in the Atlantic and even in several European countries. Clearly, a Native radio show broadcasting from the Western Door of the Haudenosaunee will blast a signal well beyond the Eastern Door on the power of KB1520. No longer will this unique show be limited to a modest broadcast area in the Buffalo market. "Let's Talk Native..." will still be posted on Native Pride and Rezkast as well as several other web sites, but now every Native and non-native community east of Seneca Territory will be reached with the live broadcast.

I want to thank WECK, the Buffalo Breeze, for giving me a home for my first year. I wish the good folks there the best of luck with their shift to a music format and much success.

I will continue to make the rounds on radio from New York to Albany and back here to Western New York. And as always, those appearances will get posted here on Native Pride. LTN will keep conversations on Native issues flowing. As a live, free form show, call-ins are encouraged. Callers who agree or disagree with the views expressed will be engaged intelligently and with respect. The show will continue to host guests, both in studio and remotely. New guests and a few returning friends will join me. Current events that affect Native people and our communities, as well as a little history and culture will be shared weekly.

Join the "Let's Talk Native...with John Kane" Facebook group. Post comments and suggestion for the show or anything that adds to our much needed conversations.

Be a part of the Newest Voice on "A New Voice. A New Choice" KB 1520AM.

Hi John,

You asked to hear from us, if we heard you from afar. I enjoyed most of your show last night, with some fuzzy spots. I live in Baltimore, Maryland. I look forward to next Sunday's show.

If the "fuzzy spots" were in the reception, you can always catch what you may have missed on the various places, including here, that the show gets posted after-the-fact. If it was my content that was fuzzy, by all means give me a call. Thanks for letting me know we reached you. I understand the reception for some of the far off places gets better in the Winter. Stay in touch and join my Facebook group page; http://www.facebook.com/groups/150184254997005/

Oh no, the fuzzy spots were entirely with reference to the reception.

I'm glad that you posted the facebook page. I couldn't find it on face book-google. It kept bringing up your blogspot.

Hi John,

I listened to your 10/2 segment using this site today. I tuned in too late to catch it on Sunday. Since listening to your show I have become more aware of "native talk" issues. I noticed in the USA Today last Monday 9/26th, states section, three stories/blurbs for three different states, "native" stories/ news were mentioned.

We enjoy your show in Baltimore, Maryland. I also heard you mention that you had heard from someone in Baltimnore during your second show.

Hi, John,

Thank you for your show on WBAI today. Let's make Fourth Crow real -- Native leadership should guide the Occupy protests around the country. Until Natives are leading the effort, the entire effort is an illusion and will fail. The US government at this stage is a mirage. "Democracy" has become another word for "cannibalism." Bring in Native American leaders so that the people of the world who are occupying now will be clear about our past, present and future. MS
