KUYI Hopi Radio: A hallmark of community engagement

KYKOTSMOVI, Ariz. - On Dec. 20, 2000 at 10 a.m., Hopi Foundation Board of Trustees Chair Doran Dalton, in a clear steady voice made the official on-air introduction: "This is KUYI 88.1 FM." The introduction was followed by a traditional Hopi village crier making the announcement from the rooftops of every village. For all who were listening that day, it was an awesome cry. That call going out over the air waves was a wonderful and magical moment, one that signaled KUYI's on air debut.
