Welcome to Wósdéé podcast. My name is Majerle Lister. This podcast will be focused on discussions I believe are important to Diné people. I can say for certain that there will be a plethora of topics discussed ranging from politics to comic books.

My goal is to discuss and navigate the current topics on and off the Navajo Nation. The name of the podcast comes from the Navajo translation of “come in”. Growing up with my grandparents, I remember clearly the routine of visitors knocking on the door and my grandmother yelling “woshdee”. This initiated a discussion over cookies and coffee.

    Episode 36: Public Health & Ké in Navajo Nation

    In this episode I talk to Dr. Teresa Montoya and Dr. Marc Emerson about their recent article, "Confronting Legacies of Structural Racism and Settler-colonialism to understand covid 19 impacts on the Navajo Nation". We discuss public health and critical expansion of the concept. Both articulate the limits of western epistemologies and the potential of including Navajo epistemologies. 

    (6:20) - What is Public Health?

    (19:45) - Lessons from the 1918 Flu

    (30:14) - Optimistic Stories and Conclusion



    Thank you to Teresa and Marc.

    Episode 34: Navajo Organizing in Farmington 1974

    Episode 34: Navajo Organizing in Farmington 1974

    In this episode I talk to Rodney Barker, the author of the Broken Circle. His book details the events during the summer of 1974 in Farmington, NM. In 1974, three Navajo men, Herman Dodge Benally, John Earl Harvey, and David Ignacio were murdered by white teens. From April to June, Navajo organizers strategized and implemented actions to oppose the racism in Farmington. In this episode we cover the events from Barker’s perspective and the information he gained from his interviews. Thank you to Rodney Barker for his time. Thank you for listening.

    Anytime Minutes 1

    I remember calling folks with a phone card with a limited amount of minutes but if I waited until 9pm I would have access to unlimited minutes. I'm feeling nostalgic for that so I dedicated a podcast episode to calling my friends asking about their stories based on various topics.

    In this episode, I asked artist friends of mine about their funniest or worst live shows. The Navajo Nation music landscape is diverse from House music to crust punk so there are a lot of stories out there.

    These are some of their stories. I have listed their music in the bio. Check them out and support them. Thanks to all of them for indulging my ideas and helping them come to life.
