Podcasts That Feature Indigenous Voices and Stories
Indigenous peoples and communities have long been misrepresented and underrepresented in mainstream media. As we strive to teach our children about the rich culture and history that makes up the world around them, it's important to help them understand the expansiveness of Indigenous cultures and the rich contributions of Native communities. This thoughtful list highlights podcasts that celebrate and elevate the diversity of Indigenous peoples, including Native American, First Nations, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, and other Indigenous cultures across Central and South America. Children and families with Indigenous heritage can hear voices and stories that reflect their own experiences and those of their ancestors. Non-Indigenous kids can expand their view of the world by listening to stories and experiences of Native cultures, as well as learning languages and traditions. Whether it's a fun folktale or a show on sustainability and environmental justice, these screen-free selections will inspire families and kids of all ages.
