In this episode of the Red Man Laughing Podcast we sit down with 3 founding members of the ReMatriate Campaign to talk about their grassroots campaign that brings voice to the opposition of the ongoing appropriation of their cultural identities.
In short, ReMatriate is a grassroots, Indigenous women led campaign to reclaim Indigenous identities. Ryan is joined by N’alaga (Avis O’Brien - Liwiłda’xw and Haida from Alert Bay, BC), Jeneen Frei Njootli (Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation from Old Crow, YT) and Kelly Edzerza Bapty (Tahltan of the Stikine River and Headwaters) and they cover topics from fashion & cultural appropriation, ReMatriating our communities, smashing patriarchy and why it is so important to look at the work of our elders & women before us to be informed about how to recenter the Women & Two Spirited in our communities.
