 This article considers and seeks to amplify the community-building work of Hopi radio during the pandemic, exploring ways in which tribally-specific production practices at Hopi station KUYI FM exemplify and communicate Hopi values of compassion, empathy and resilience. In this exploration, I draw on radio practitioner perspectives and community-facing content, utilizing Indigenous concepts to analyse how KUYI’s production practices comprise ‘acts of resurgence’ (Corntassel 2012, Betasamosake Simpson 2017) as place-based practices produced within and emerging from a grounded normativity (Coulthard and Betasamosake Simpson 2016). Through this analysis, I examine in turn diverse ways in which KUYI’s COVID-19-specific programming reinforces community trust during the current pandemic and enables opportunities for building Indigenous solidarity.
