The Indian Relay Podcast
A podcast about the Wind River Indian Reservation, its people, and its history.
Heebee/Tous and Huhk! Welcome to Indian Relay, a podcast where we bring the people and stories of the Wind River Indian Reservation to the forefront. Located in central Wyoming, the Wind River Indian Reservation is home to the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho people. We are two nations and one community.
On each episode, hosts CooXooEii Black (Northern Arapaho) and Ivan Posey (Northern Arapaho, Eastern Shoshone, Cheyenne), will be hosting community members from different fields to give their unique perspectives on the beauty and challenges we come across on the reservation. This podcast came from the desire to tell our stories, explore our history, and share our wisdom. As people, we are expected to subscribe to specific narratives. On this show, we question and change those narratives while celebrating our people and community.
This show is a space for everyone—for Native folks to laugh, to hear ourselves, and to think deeper about the happenings in our communities, and for non-Native people to listen and learn. We hope that you will join us on this journey.
Hoo Wee Hoo and Hohou!
