My friend D-Rez who works at our sister pop station KFFM is a Yakam Native American. He is very proud of his heritege as I am for knowing him. To be honest with you, we should all be speaking Yakama or Navajo or other Native American language. It is an honor to have these girls on my show. Showing their pride from what our nation was and should be again. I have the royalty in the studio with me today finding out a little about the Pow-Wow this weekend.
