Tune into this Minneapolis station on Indigenous Peoples’ Day

This is our second year bringing you special programming for Indigenous Peoples’ Day coming up on October 14th. And, we’re excited. This year, we have a straight 14 hours of Native-led programming planned for our listeners. Wake up with us at 6 am and wind down with us for the day at 8 pm. Tune in to hear hosts talk about the changing race relations in Bemidji, MN, the problem of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, improving the health and wellness of Native people through traditional foods, the impact of the post-World War II ‘Indian Adoption Project,’ Indigenous hip hop artists, and more. Check out the full schedule below.

And, Indigenous Peoples’ Day isn’t the only time we lift up these voices. Since we launched our station in 2017, KRSM has been a platform for voices, stories, and conversations that are often misrepresented or just missing entirely from traditional media outlets. As a truly community-based station, our hosts and content reflect the conversations and folks who live in our South Minneapolis community. Specifically —

  • You’ll find our programming is in 6 different languages.
  • We broadcast 12 hours of programming each week by Indigenous-identifying hosts (more than triple what you can find on the entire rest of the dial currently!).
  • 84% of our hosts identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color.
  • Our schedule features shows amplifying the voices of the incarcerated and recently incarcerated, youth of color, LGBTQ folks, immigrants, refugees, & other communities you don’t often find on the dial or in other media outlets.

So hey, we’d love if you celebrated Indigenous Peoples’ Day with us this October 14th. If you’re in South Minneapolis, tune into 98.9 FM or else listen from ANYWHERE on krsmradio.org or on our iOS/Android mobile apps. Wherever you’re at, we’ve got you covered this October 14th.
