In this episode of Red Man Laughing we take you to the Gichi Dewin Storytellers Festival in beautiful Wasauksing territory near Parry Sound, ON. Reconciliation & Canada 150 presents Canadian's with an opportunity to listen to AND hear Indigenous voices - it's up to Canadian's to seek, find then amplify the voices that speak to them.
We sit down and chat with Muskrat Magazine publisher & founder, Rebeka Tabobondung to talk about amplifying Indigenous voices and her struggle to bring Muskrat Magazine to the internet. We also sit down and chat with Muskwanakwad Rice to talk about his language journey and the importance of embracing the hard work it'll take for Indigenous Peoples to be heard.
Finally, we give you a preview of the 2nd Annual Gichi Dewin Storytellers Festival, which you'll hear in its entirety next week on the show.
Nearly 5 years ago, Musky Rice began his language journey. He was on Red Man Laughing early in Season 2 to talk about the challenge of learning the Ojibway language. Below is our chat.
