Facebook Twitter Email

Listen live online at 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Residents of Indian Country and beyond will get a chance to air their views on the Bush administration's proposed reorganization of the Bureau of Indian Affairs tomorrow.

Native America Calling host Harlan McKosato will preside over an hour-long discussion on the topic. Keith Harper of the Native American Rights Fund of Colorado will be one of the guests.

NAC has not released the names of other invited guests, however, but notes that tribal leaders have cried "foul" over the plan, which was announced in a late-night court filing and in a press release last week.

Government officials have typically declined to participate in any discussions about the debacle.

NAC is broadcast five days a week from Studio 49 on the University of New Mexico campus in Albuquerque. Visit the show's web site to find out local radio stations that carry the program, which begins at 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Internet users can also listen online.
