SSUC Podcast Ep. 2.4-Treaty Talk and Indigenous Peoples Day
Episode 2.4 of the SSUC Podcast is now available, featuring audio from the June 23 gathering for Indigenous Peoples Day and the screening of Treaty Talk: Sharing the Water of Life. Alongside Minister Chris New was Metis and Indigenous elder Elsie Paul and Dr’s Pat Makokis and Diana Steinhauer. Dr. Makokis is the producer of the film Treaty Talk.
Treaty Talk – Sharing the River of Life is a 50 minute teaching tool to better understand our collective responsibility to treaty. The purpose of this video is to build understanding, allyship and bridges for better relationship and work together. This film, through the sharing of a traditional Cree understanding on natural law and treaty, will explore and model how indigenous nations and non-indigenous allies in Canada can come together to transform racism and discrimination at a local and systemic level and to build a future of mutual benefit.
