Speaking of Faith: Biographical Series

Production of a one-hour radio program, together with a companion website, on Tatanka Iyotanka (Sitting Bull), and development of six treatments profiling significant figures in the history of religious thought around the world.

American Public Media|Minnesota Public Radio respectfully request a one-year grant of $79,556 from the NEH to extend and amplify Speaking of Faith's (SoF) existing NEH-funded work in the area of historical biography. This grant would support the production of a one-hour radio program, extensive interactive, multimedia companion Web site, and accompanying discussion and reflection guide for adult learners. The subject of this episode--the seventh in our series--will be Hunkpapa Lakota chief Tatanka Iyotanka (Sitting Bull). We also request funding for the development of six more program treatments for future production. These treatments would be selected from an ongoing list of historic figures who have had significant impact on their own time, and whose legacy is under-reported but meaningful. Our request for funding takes into account the fact that much more research, and other specialized production activities are involved in the creation of each program in the biographical series.
