The Indigenous Story and Systemic Racism

with Guest Dr. Cheryl Bear, from Nadleh Whut’en First Nation

It’s no secret that in Canada, there’s a complicated relationship between the descendents of settlers and the Indigenous people. We see that Indigenous people more often experience material poverty and systemic racism, but many of us don’t know the historical reasons for this inequality. And we don’t know what to do about it. 

In this episode, Cheryl Bear of the Nadleh Whut’en First Nation shares some of the painful context for where we find ourselves today and offers hope for a way toward reconciliation.
