New Mexico In Depth helped produce an episode of the national radio program Native America Calling on water that airs Wednesday.
The hour-long episode will explore how tribes are using settlements with the federal government to ensure greater control over water resources. It will also explore challenges related to water management in Native communities.
Native America Calling airs on nearly 70 public, community and tribal stations in the United States and Canada. It airs on Albuquerque’s KUNM-FM weekdays from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
NMID will post audio of Wednesday’s show on our website after it airs.
Laura Paskus, a reporter working on NMID’s Native America Project, helped with the episode through a partnership between NMID and Koahnic Broadcast Corporation, which produces the live, call-in show on Native American issues for public radio stations.
In April, Paskus helped produce a Native America Calling episode on protecting sacred places.
