Chris Spotted Eagle's radio guests: Empowerment and hope in Minneapolis

KFAI’s Indian uprising for January 6, 2008 from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. CDT

American Indian Opportunities Industrialization Center (AIOIC), Minneapolis, is a non-profit corporation with a mission to empower American Indians and people from all other races to pursue career opportunities. "We are passionate about bringing positive changes to the lives of the people we meet. This passion has driven us to create programs to provide opportunities to individuals - to become independent, self-sufficient, and productive - and change their lives." Mission: To empower American Indians to pursue career opportunities by providing individualized Education, Training, and Employment Services in a culturally sensitive environment.
In 1964, Reverend Sullivan founded Opportunities Industrialization Centers (OIC) of America in an abandoned jail house in North Philadelphia. The program took individuals with little hope and few prospects and offered them job training and instruction in life skills and then helped place them into jobs. The movement quickly spread around the nation. With sixty (60) affiliated programs in thirty (30) states and the District of Columbia, OIC has grown into a movement, which has served over two (2) million disadvantaged and under-skilled people. This approach also led to the formation of the Opportunities Industrialization Centers International (OICI) in 1969.
Program guests are: Dr. Lee Antell (White Earth Ojibwe), Executive Director, American Indian OIC Annessia Swann (Piscataway People), Program Director, In-An-Da-We (to climb to a higher place - Ojibwe), AIOIC

Aaniin Chris

I was going through old articles at the University of Minnesota Morris and found one from 1983. This acticle is about the prison system and how the brothers deal with ceremonies in prison. I worked for almost 5 years in the CCA prisons in Appleton and the guys did not get much even the little time they get for ceremonies now are slowly taken away.. I pray the Great Spirit will help with in their stay.
