ETHETE, Wyo. (AP) – The Northern Arapaho Tribe has started producing a new radio program dedicated to news and events on the Wind River Indian Reservation.
Tribal Public Relations Director Donovan Antelope said The Hei’towott (Hay-to-WAHT’) News Hour serves as a radio broadcast version of the tribe’s Hei’towott monthly newsletter.
The program began airing recently on KWRR, a tribally owned National Public Radio affiliate in Ethete.
Antelope said the hour-long program airs on Wednesdays and features local news and interviews with local or visiting officials. He said the program also includes health tips and trivia about the tribe.
Antelope said the Arapaho word Hei’towott translates in English as “to tell the people or telling the people.”
