In every culture there are words and ways to tell us who we are as people. Age-old Africans tell the tale of “Mother Lion and Her Cubs.” For our guest, Dr. NEYOOXET GREYMORNING PhD—member of the ARAPAHO Nation and Professor of Anthropology and Native American Studies at the University of Montana—it’s a story about the power of the golden eagle and the message: nothing is so small that it’s not capable of putting something much greater than itself in motion. On this episode of THE JANUS ADAMS SHOW: ROAR AND SOAR! We’re talking about the power of words and language itself. What do our words—and how we use them— say about who we are?
