Residential Schools Are A Feminist Issue

On this episode, we discuss everyday acts of Reconciliation and the impact of residential schools on gender relations in Indigenous society. We speak to Gwichya Gwich’in scholar Crystal Fraser about her research into Inuvik’s residential school system and why she thinks it is a feminist issue.

Remembering Our Sisters

In honour of the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, we discuss the 25th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre and the Canadian government’s inaction in regards to missing and murdered Aboriginal women. This show features interviews with University of Alberta professor, Dr. Lise Gotell, and First Nations student and activist, Alexandria Wolfe.

Unfortunately there are some audio disturbances in the interview with Dr. Gotell – we apologise for this.
