Break Dances With Wolves is a masterpiece of a podcast!
Minty, Wesley, and Gyasi have voices that are easy on the ears while talking about difficult truths. Thank you for creating and sharing.
I am white, grew up in SE USA, lived and studied in Middle East, and spent 20 yrs in Chicago, where I got a PhD in a subject that relied on understanding global colonial power. This is the BEST and most helpful discussion I have ever heard about racism. Thanks!
I found Gyasi on Twitter, then watched some of his videos on YouTube. Now on my humble iPhone 6 I listen to Breakdances With Wolves. Gyasi, Wesley, and Minty are a perfect team. Only podcast I’ve really ever listen to. I started from the beginning, episode 1. I’m trying to be down Gyasi what’s up? 😆

I can’t say enough about this pod cast. I laugh my A** OFF, I burn with righteous indignation, and (I’m not too manly too admit) I cry.
That’s all in just one episode!!
Keep it up.
Mahalo Nu Nui to all you folks.
Thank you for this podcast. I recommend it to all Washington folks.
Love this podcast; it is thought provoking, sensitive to BIPOC, smart & funny. The subjects are current, the guests are intelligent, & the conversations are important & informative. This is my main source of current news because it’s from an indigenous perspective. Thanks so much. Karuk Pride✊
All Around Excellent
Thank you for your intelligence, wit, passion and humor discussing topics and issues that are incredibly meaningful. Your dynamic together as hosts (and as a group) is awesome to listen to and your interaction with some truly significant guests makes it really accessible to listeners. Can I gently suggest that your producers list in the podcast's shownotes more details on the organizations, events and other details that get brought up during the episode? Would be a great opportunity to promote these resources. Also you deserve more stars and reviews so folks can find you! Perhaps you include a suggestion to rate your podcast at the Out-tro of the episodes? Thanks again and with much gratitude.
Breaks dances with wolves.
I am educated every time. Love this and still love your voice and humor Gyasi.
Thank you for your podcast. I have seen host on MSNBC and Democracy Now and was very impressed with knowledge dropped. Came across you on Twitter and found your podcast. I appreciate your POV and experiences and am glad to hear your perspective, sentiments expressed re: issues facing First Nations communities. As an African American woman, I believe in the importance of informing myself about communities apart from my own. I value learning about the culture, history of all peoples, and I salute you for bringing your POV to the masses. Keep up the good work; speak Truth to power; stay strong.

In addition they pinned killing a cop on him. I believe he is at this time off death row. This episode is off the hook.
The host of this show is a racist and the show is trash
The host of this show is a racist who routinely goes on anti-white diatribes. Beyond that, the show is just bad.
Smart, nuanced, funny, revealing
This podcast is such an excellent listen. The conversations that take place are engaging, funny, complex, challenging, and very clearly centered around a fierce community love. As a non-Native person it gives me invaluable perspective on modern concerns for Native folks and the diversity of cultures and nations that I coexist with. Listening to y’all is always a treat and I love that I am constantly learning things on here I probably wouldn’t otherwise. Humbling, entertaining, provocative, and informing the way that I live. Thank you for making this.
Oct 26th episode
this is really really stupid
I enjoyed this episode and as a white person I have a better understanding of the some of the issues around sports fishing. I love locally sourced food, and would love to support local native fishermen.
The first of many great podcasts coming from the amazing Blackfeet Nation
Actually I suppose there could be more I don’t know of but what a great way to hear from authentic voices from one of the kindest bravest intelligent cultures on our planet. Great wisdom mixed with their own brand of humor delivered with homegrown perspectives. Great show!
I heard about these guys from bigindian on instagram—and I love this podcast. I feel I need to know /understand/support Native Americans and I find their discussions to be informative, uplifting and sometimes really funny. Love it !
What a great perspective for this middle aged white chick! Keep up the good work!
Gyasi, Wesley, Minty, are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! Their voices are so needed! Many thanks for what y'all are doing! Wado!
Support native voices!
I need this podcast. I need an indigenous voice, giving me the context and perspective that is sorely lacking in almost all other media. I need a non-white voice at the same level of all the white voices I hear. Everyone needs this podcast. Its funny and raw and tells stories that no one else is broadcasting.
Black Dutches with Wolves
I read about Breakdances in the Stranger & hadn't even finished the article before grabbing my iPhone & downloading the podcast.
Just about everything in the 3 episodes so far speaks specifically about topics I care about.
I was particularly affected by the discussion of being asked about your heritage by strangers on the street. Being Biracial (Mexican & Caucasian) & Cherokee, I'm frequently asked by strangers what my ethnicity is.
Thanks for the bomb podcast & I look forward to the next episode!
Note: During my childhood, 'Black Dutch' is what I was told my partial ethnicity was. I've since learnt that, in my case, 'Black Dutch' meant Cherokee.
