The Storyteller is a 15-minute weekly radio broadcast and podcast featuring true stories from Native American - First Nations people across North America who are following Jesus Christ without reservation. Don't be fooled, this is not some religious, feel good program. This is real life. It's raw, direct and personal. If you're tired of the way things are, or wonder if there really is hope for something better, you may want to listen to some folks who understand. The Storyteller can be heard by radio broadcast in over 700 communities in Canada and the US, and throughout the world via the Internet.
Bill Jackson (Cree) Part 1
Bill is a Cree from northern Alberta. He was born and raised in the Whitefish Lake Cree Nation. He was sent away to residential school early in his childhood. He didn't make it easy on the people there. Actually, he wasn't allowed to go back.
Harriet Hinman (Chemehuevi) Part 2
And I thought about my Indian people, you know, when they would go into Kingman, my mom's tribe, the Haulapai's, only two or three of them could go into the store at one time. They wouldn't let a whole bunch of Indians in because we were Indians and they didn't trust us.
Harriet Hinman (Chemehuevi) Part 1
It's tough growing up when you feel like you don't fit in. For a little girl named Harriet, it was a lonely time. Listen as she reflects back on the early days of her life, and as she shares the most significant moment in her life... at a school away from home.
Soapy Dollar (Mescalero Apache) Part 3
And I said, 'Do you happen to remember, back in 1949, your mother coming into possession of a little Apache Indian baby?' And she sucked in her breath - I heard it on the phone. And she said, 'Why, why yes. Why do you ask?' I said, 'Well I'm that baby.'
Soapy Dollar (Mescalero Apache) Part 2
I remember, early on, wondering a whole lot about my place in the world and if there was any significance to my life, or was I just kind of drifting along here like a twig sitting on the waves of the ocean, no significance, no background, no future.
Soapy Dollar (Mescalero Apache) Part 1
"Danny was the big man on campus. He was the meanest, toughest, most foul-mouthed boy on the ranch, and we all wanted to grow up and be just as tough and mean as he was. But he would kick us around, hit us, yell at us, force us to do his chores and things, just a very mean fellow, but one day Danny just changed, totally without any explanation, without any warning his life changed. His demeanor changed, his vocabulary changed everything about him, and nobody knew what had happened."
My thoughts on this podcast.
I love hearing about how God works miracles in peoples lives. I stumbled on this podcast when my wife and I were traveling through the Crow agency in eastern Montana. We live in Wickenburg Arizona. I am not Native American, but have a heart for them and their struggles. May God richly bless these people.
I just happened to come across this podcast about 8 minutes ago. I love it! It contains incredibly inspiring testimonies from real people. I hope more will be reached with this message of hope!
