KUYI Hopi Radio brings culture to the airwaves

KEAMS CANYON, Ariz. - KUYI Hopi Radio isn't your average public radio station. One of its main goals is to keep the Hopi language alive by broadcasting and translating programs into Hopi (Lavayi). Preserving culture and tradition is another goal, one which the station's staff and volunteers take seriously.
