Red Man Laughing - 6th Annual U of T Indigenous Writers Gathering Featuring David Treuer, Taiaiake Alfred & Lee Maracle

Ryan McMahon

In this episode of the Red Man Laughing Podcast we take you inside the 6th Annual University of Toronto Indigenous Writers Gathering which took place on campus at First Nations House. We hear from David Treuer (Anishinaabe - Leech Lake, MN), Taiaiake Alfred (Kahnawake Mohawk) and Lee Maracle (Sto:lo Nation) as they talk about their works and how they connect to the land.

The first part of the podcast brings you to David and Taiaiake's panel discussion - Developing Nationhood and Supporting Sovereignty Through Storytelling And Academia. In today's political climate we hear many Indigenous Peoples talk about the land in pragmatic or metaphorical ways - but - is the connection the land more practical than that? These authors bring us inside of their work in an often hilarious and insightful way.

The second part of the podcast brings you to the Gala Event held on the Friday night of the Indigenous Writers Gathering and we feature the work of the incomparable Lee Maracle. Lee is one of the most prolific authors in Canada and her books are hauntingly beautiful, challenging and powerful stories from not only her own experience and point of view - but, also, from the land itself.

As always, thanks for listening. Make sure you subscribe to the podcast to get new episodes sent directly to yourEmail or iTunes.
