In this episode I'm honoured to have the chance to have a sit down, featured chat with the Assembly of First Nations National Chief - Shawn Atleo. I wanted to talk with the National Chief to get a chance to get a sense of who he is and what it is that shapes his policy and vision for moving forward as Indigenous Peoples living in Canada. After what was supposed to have been a "historic gathering" with the Crown, I wanted to hear more about the vision & plans around Canada making good on Treaty promises and what a Post-Indian Act Canada might look like.
Musical Guest - Silver Jackson
This weeks musical guest is Silver Jackson (Tlingit/Aleut). From Sitka, Alaska, Silver Jackson is a musical project of visual artist Nicholas Galanin. Silver Jackson has mixed everything from broken blues to lo-fi folk. The son of blues musician Strummin’ Dog, and brother of Little Stones Father front man, music waters his family tree. A whiskey drinking blues musician gifted Nicholas with the alias “Silver Jackson” after a street jam. With this new identity, Silver began writing and recording, issuing his first Ep, “Moves Like Music”, which introduced his fresh sound to the HomeSkillet Record label.
