Cihuapilli Le Beau Rose Amador guests are Richard Windfeathers (Picuris Pueblo) and R. Eagle Many Hats Levy (Chemejucvi) on Native Voice TV show.

Eagle Many Hats mentions about James Ortolani, the co-founder of the KIA flag and that Ortolani contacted Eagle “Many Hats” Levy and asked for help in creating a flag that would honor the Native Americans Killed in Action or who later Died of Wounds because of an action. Eagle Many Hats continues to mention Mike Nopah of the Mohave Tribe, who created the design that is now honoring the Native American – Killed in Action (NAKIA) flag. Windfeathers makes statements of facts about our Native American being the largest ethnic group of America to serve for this country (210,000). The Native American Memorial flag which was designed for brothers and sisters who came from reservations, served in the U.S. Armed Forces and were KIA or DOW. Placing eagle feathers with the Medicine Wheel on both sides of the sacred oval shield, we are respecting the Red Road and what is passed down by elders to live by traditionally.

NVTV – Deborah A Miranda (Chumash), Author of “Bad Indians”

Cihuapilli Rose Amador interviews
Deborah A. Miranda (Chumash) on
Native Voice TV show.

 Deborah is one ‘Bad Indian’. Her memoir refuses categorization in its unique structure, gorgeous poetry, and painful story of resistance, strength, and survival. Part documentary of Mission Indians and part coming of age story, her book reaches back to the beginning of colonization of her ancestors to insist on an identity, both tribal and sexual, both painful and celebratory, of a people who many in California and the world relegated to extinction. Miranda was kind enough to offer generous answers about her extraordinary memoir
‘Bad Indians: A Tribal Memoir’.
