In this episode of the Red Man Laughing podcast I am joined by Sarah Cortez (Metis), Janice Makokis (Cree) & Dawn Marie Marchand (Cree/Metis) and we discuss Bill C-33, or the First Nation Control Of First Nation Education Act. The bill has been tabled in the House of Commons and will be moved quickly through the house to gain Royal Assent (brought into law) and the race is now on to educate those that will be deeply effected by the bill.
Not only does this bill break Treaty (no free, prior or informed consent) but it sets First Nations up for disasterous results as this new proposed system would basically adopt Provincial Standards which are failing our Youth in startling numbers. It is felt by many that if we have the chance to create real, meaningful and lasting change to Indigenous Education - it has to come from Indigenous Peoples.
