Featured on the August 10th, 2023 edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore:
- The hit television show Reservation Dogs has returned to Hulu with its third and final season. The show is unique in that it is created and produced by an Indigenous North American crew of writers, directors and performers. Among them is Tucsonan Jon Proudstar. In this interview, he tells the story of how COVID almost took his chance to be part of the show away, and what it means for Indigenous representation on TV.
- For most of its 40 year existence, The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) hosts meetings for people living with mental illness, their families and caregivers. Some of those in attendance open up and share some of the small, everyday methods they use to help them deal with unwanted thoughts & feelings. This segment is called "Moments to Cope".
If you or someone you love is seeking help with their mental health, the NAMI Crisis Line can be reached by dialing 988 (suicide hotline) or by calling (520) 622-6000.
- Owl & Panther introduces us to Robaba, a refugee from Afghanistan who works as a teacher, inspiring others with her boundless passion for knowledge and her artistic skill. She joins Leah Britton to share an original story that explores the perspective of a teenage girl living under Taliban rule.
