This performance reflects upon the indigenous cultural implications of consumer technologies such as the Internet, mobile handheld devices, and personal computers, and how this relates to the effects of these technologies upon the lived experiences of all people. Radio Healer achieves this through the tactical appropriation and adaptive reuse of consumer technologies by indigenous peoples, along with the expression of indigenous media through sustainable cross-cultural partnerships between peoples of diverse backgrounds. The motivation of our collaborative work is to appropriate and express electronic technology in order to recognize the sovereign rights of indigenous peoples.
