Check out the CBC Massey Lectures

The CBC Massey Lectures this year are by Tanya Talaga (author of Seven Fallen Feathers). If you are interested in the experience of Indigenous People in Canada I think you’ll appreciate this series of lectures. She specifically mentions the community I am in (Poplar Hill).

Here is one link to the page on the CBC site: https://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas/the-2018-cbc-massey-lectures-all-our-relations-finding-the-path-forward-1.4763007

Unless you’re a robot you will find these lectures challenging. Talaga “explores the legacy of cultural genocide against Indigenous peoples — in Canada and elsewhere”.

Personally I still haven’t gotten my head around the Indigenous experience. These things don’t happen in Canada, right?

May you be safe from harm, and  free from cruelty and suffering.
