    Tune in to a weekly live streaming broadcast of traditional and contemporary Native American flute songs and stories by Bill Neal Elk Whistle, a master Native American flautist of Tsalagi ancestry - an actor, activist, writer, speaker, powwow coordinator, healer, mental health worker, former Native American spiritual leader in a California state prison, and before that, a 22- year environmental professional - following a vision of the future since 1966. Weekly broadcasts now every Tuesday at 6 PM Pacific Time - http://www.numubu.com/BillNealElkWhistle. Currently Adobe Flash Player is required to connect - some mobile devices, such as the iPhone and iPad, do not work with Flash Player. A remedy is to download and use the Puffin browser for mobile devices, available for download for Android devices as well as iPads and iPhones at https://www.puffinbrowser.com/download. Some time next month, Adobe Flash Player will not be the only way to connect, permanently solving this problem. If you are in some other part of the world and need to know what time the broadcast will take place where you are, go to this link to calculate for your time zone: http://www.worldtimezone.com/.
