YAI Podcast stands for Young and Indigenous - and that is who we are: Tribal youth creating an outlet to express opinions, voice ideas and concerns, and share stories that have been, until now, untold. By listening to the voices of our ancestors, we are reclaiming our narrative and preserving our way of life. Join us on our journey!
My Gift From the Past
Bella gets deep with Jason LaClair, learning about his life creating Coast Salish art and his journey to wellness. Jason’s story is an example of strength, hope, inspiration, and belief that you can climb out of the darkness of addiction. Honoring his ancestors, he healed and transformed his life and you can now see his art all around Bellingham and the Lummi Community. We are all so proud of you.
Join us for an authentic conversation on Thanksgiving with Noelani Auguston. We’ll discuss history, personal stories, and embracing cultural diversity in this holiday reflection.
