New Indigenae Podcast Launching October 7th

The Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health is proud to announce the launch of Indigenae, a community-grounded podcast celebrating Indigenous Womxn’s Health and Wellbeing. Indigenae will launch on October 7th, 2021, and listeners can subscribe to the podcast on all streaming services for new episodes every Tuesday.

The Indigenae podcast shares conversations with traditional practitioners, Indigenous health care workers, activists, researchers, artists, and survivors. Hosts Sarah Stern, Olivia Trujillo, and Dr. Sophie Neuner will take listeners on a journey through Indigenous womanhood, exploring topics from Coming of Age to Becoming an Elder. “Indigenae is really about telling stories,” says Sarah Stern, Citizen of the Cherokee Nation, “and for Indigenous peoples, storytelling is a traditional way of learning how to live well.”

All episodes were guided by an advisory board of Elders, mothers, and daughters, who came together from Tribal nations across Turtle Island, also known as North America, to define topics, guests, and discussions. “This powerful group of women, who gifted their time to Indigenae, were in the driver’s seat,” explains Olivia Trujillo, Member of the Navajo Nation.

“Guest speakers share so many important lessons”, says Dr. Sophie Neuner, Member of the Karuk Tribe. “Their laughter, stories, and teachings are medicine.”

Episodes will air on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Podcasts, and other podcasting platforms every Tuesday at 4 AM ET.
