Radio III / ᎦᏬᏂᏍᎩ ᏦᎢ ​is the first collaboration between Hanako Hoshimi-Caines, Zoë Poluch, and Elisa Harkins. It is an Indigenous futuristic concert, a beautiful and uncomfortable dance performance, and a perverse triangle of shifting power that seeks to be unfaithful to both minimalism and postmodern dance’s claims to so-called “neutrality.” This collaboration combines disco and Indigenous languages in an effort to alter the fate of these endangered languages through active use, preservation on pressed vinyl, and radio play. ​Radio III / ᎦᏬᏂᏍᎩ ᏦᎢ​ features songs by Elisa Harkins, some of which are in Cherokee and Muscogee (Creek). Collected together on the Radio III / ᎦᏬᏂᏍᎩ ᏦᎢ album, is all nine songs from the performance.

Performance and creation Elisa Harkins, Hanako Hoshimi-Caines, and Zoë Poluch. Liner notes by James Goddard. Cover art by KInga Michalska. Beadwork by Molly Murphy-Adams.
