The Reality of the Silent
CWAI is by far one of the greatest podcasts I have ever heard. Not only is a way for the host to tell their personal story of the endeavors they have endorsed, but also provides a realistic approach to modern tribal communities and poverty. The stories told are not just experienced by one, but by many. It speaks to everyone in a sense that we can all relate with most of the issues discussed one way or another. Whether it be in the form of sorrow or tragedy, or pride or spirituality, CWAI speaks to its audience and speaks truth through experience.
Disappointing. From the reviews I was expecting more. Must be relatives reviewing. LOL Seems full of his own made up philosophies. Won’t be listening again.
I’m happy to find this pod cast!! Listening from Grand Traverse Band Indiana reservation Charlevoix County
