Mission Statement

Indigenous in Music and Arts

Our Mission: We are working to preserve cultural expression by creating more opportunity for the community to benefit from and be a benefit to indigenous art and music.

The Indigenous in Music and Arts is a registered nonprofit 501c3 radio program, heard on over 35 stations and in 6 major markets, Chicago, Detroit, Colorado Springs, Philadelphia, Columbus and Anchorage.

Larry K started Indigenous in Music first in Minneapolis in 2006 as a half hour program, along with an interview featuring a musician and a music review of their new album.  In 2010, the show moved Sarasota, Florida to become what it is today.  We have grown from one station to over 35.

And host the “Indigenous in Music at the Van Weasel.”
