Our Hour of Reckoning: An Indigenous Peoples Special (featuring Bryson Syliboy)
Warning: This episode touches on, among other subjects, residential schools. If you are feeling triggered, the National Indian Residential School Crisis Hotline can be reached at 1-866-925-4419.
Given that the question of how well, or rather how poorly, Canada has treated Indigenous Peoples over the decades is, and rightly so, the top news story of these times… and as Monday was National Indigenous Peoples Day, we here at the True North Eager Beaver have prepared a special episode that features a collection of Indigenous-focused stories. As we’ve just posted a Cross-Canada COVID Update Special as Episode 7, no update in this episode. But in addition to our collection of Indigenous-focused stories, we have an extremely timely and engaging interview with Bryson Syliboy [aka Bryson the Gaytive], a Two-Spirit Mi'kmaw gentleman who caught our eye with some advice on Indigenous Allyship Etiquette. If you wish to follow along you can find Bryson Syliboy’s list of Indigenous Allyship Etiquette tips at: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1399545576174260225.html
And we’ll finish the show with a shout out to our patrons, listener feedback, and some important news that brings hope that things will get better. Enjoy and please be kind to, and gentle with, yourselves,
Your Eager Beaver
