Tillicum Wawa

 The hosts of Tillicum Wawa retired from the KBOO airwaves in July 2013 after many years of putting together a terrific weekly program.  Thanks Eugene and Shusli!

"Tillicum Wawa: Voices of the People"
is

Rhonda "Shusli" Baseler

“Tillicum Wawa” is a Chinook Jargon phrase which, loosely translated, means “The people speak”.

 Chinook Jargon was a trade language used by Natives in this region before Europeans arrived here. It was a combination of Salish, Nootka, and Chinook languages.  After explorers, traders, and other non-natives arrived in this area, French and English words were integrated into the jargon.  It was widely used to communicate between people of different tribes, nationalities, and races.

That is why we chose the name.  Tillicum Wawa is here to help represent the under-represented voice of the Native peoples of this nation. To be a “voice for the voiceless”.  

 If you’re listening, you’re part of the conversation.

Tom Ball,VP of the Native program at U of O is our spoecial guest

Tom Ball , Vice President  of the Native American porgram at the U of O in Eugene, will be our guest on KBOO for  this week's  "Tillicum Wawa" show on Thrusday 2-21-13.

Tom Ball,  Emillio Henandez of the Latino programs and Carla Gary of the African American programs have been replaced by a "single position' for all of these minority programs, by Yvette Alex-Assensah . She was  appointed by the President of the U of O.

This is an outrage to these people who have dedicated  years at developing the programs for and of minority students at the University of Oregon..
