Episode 7

Children’s Grief and the Systemic Neglect of Indigenous Peoples in Canada

A tragic element of the history of Canada is the systemic neglect of Indigenous, Metis, First Nation, and Inuit peoples. This traumatic truth has been painfully exemplified with the uncovering of thousands of Indigenous children at Canadian Residential Schools.

Joining us on this podcast is the Award-Winning Actor, Media Personality, and Public Educator of Mi’kmaw First Nation Bear clan with Canadian Decent, Nadia Thunder Woman George. In this episode she speaks to the systemic neglect of Indigenous peoples in Canada as she eloquently articulates how to dismantle harmful narrative, especially as they relate to children’s grief support. She generously shares her passion, experiences, and insightful wisdom in graciously creating space for First Nation, Metis, and Inuit voices while championing advocacy against environmental racism through her partnership with the WATER FIRST organization.

Joining us for an incredibly powerful and barrier breaking episode!
