Tonight's lineup on a special Indigenous People's Day edition of RadioACTive:

Braidan Weeks, host of Living The Circle of Life, Sundays from 7:00-10:00 a.m. on KRCL

Darren Parry, Chair, Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation, shared the story of Boa Ogoi, also known as The Bear River Massacre. 

  • Boa Ogoi or Big River in the native Shoshone language is the name of the massacre of more than 400 Shoshone in what is today Southeast Idaho. It was the single largest loss of Native American life in the history of the country. The tribe is raising money to build a new Shoshone Cultural Interpretive Center on the site and to honor the enduring spirit of the Shoshone people today. Click here for more details. 
  • Parry is the grandson of Mae Timbimboo Parry, historian and matriarch of the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone. Click here to read the story he wrote about her as part of the Better Days 2020 campaign to document Utah Women Making History.
