Drew Lacapa
This year NS-NV will feature a show about Native comedy, skits and other silly material in favor of April 1--Commonly known as April Fool's Day.

Tune-in to hear "Coyote Bites Back: Indian Humor." This is a program that defies stereotypes that Indians are silent mascots, stoic and are not humorous. In fact, Native people do have a good sense of humor and this show makes that point. So tune-in on to listen to the April Fool's Day edition of NS-NV.
