All My Relations is a podcast hosted by Matika Wilbur (Swinomish and Tulalip) and Adrienne Keene (Cherokee Nation) to explore our relationships— relationships to land, to our creatural relatives, and to one another.  Each episode invites guests to delve into a different topic facing Native peoples today We keep it real, play some games, laugh a lot, and even cry sometimes. We invite you to join us!

The podcast came from a desire to have more Indigenous voices accessible in mainstream media—every day we encounter brilliant Native folks who are fighting and resisting settler colonialism, while also celebrating and uplifting our communities and cultures. The majority of Americans never see this side of Indian Country, and instead only see stereotypical Hollywood Indians set in the historic past or sad, dark poverty porn. The creators want to offer an alternative, to move beyond bland stereotypes and misrepresentations, and engage in the messy, beautiful, and complicated parts of being Indigenous. They see this work as an extension of Project 562 and Native Appropriations. They also want this space to be for everyone—for Native folks to laugh, to hear themselves reflected, and give them a chance to think deeper about some of the biggest issues facing their communities— and for non-Native folks to listen and learn.

Their first season covers a wide range of topics from food sovereignty to Native mascots, fashion, literature, sex, relationships, DNA, identity, politics, and more. They talk with incredible guests like Kim Tallbear, Jessica Metcalfe, Stephanie Fryberg, Deborah Parker, Jamie Okuma, Valerie Seagrest, Billy Ray Belcourt and Joshua Whitehead, and so many more.

The first three episodes, All My Relations & Indigenous FeminismFood Sovereignty: A Growing Movement, and Native Mascots: Really Still?, are currently released!
