Red Man Laughing - Niigaan: In Conversation

In this episode of the Red Man Laughing Podcast we take you to Ottawa, ON for a live recording of the podcast done in partnership with Niigaan: In Conversation.The esteemed panel of guests include Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs Grand Chief Derek Nepinak, Serpent River Chief Isadore Day, Wab Kinew, Leanne Simpson, Lee Maracle, Geraldine King & Celina Cada-Matasawagon. I tasked the group with taking a look back at the last year in regards to the rise of Idle No More.


Winter Time is the time of year where the earth becomes covered in snow. It’s a time for rest and reflection. Last winter we rose. We did not rest, we did not reflect. We took to the malls, the streets, and the hills. The community rallied around, there was a desperate feeling, people gathered at teach-ins, the scent of medicines was everywhere. We need to get that energy back. Niigaan: In Conversation asked ourselves, what happened to the fire? The problems are still here, we still have work to do. Let’s get together as a community and talk about our future.


A few highlights from this talk that you should listen for are: 



  • Lee Maracle talking about the prophecy that told us that we'd be teaching the world about the power of our drums & community.

  • Chief Isadore Day breaking down the importance of self care and taking care of the homefires.

  • Leanne Simpson sharing her thoughts on the Wampum Belt - letting us know what the belt DOES mean to her and what it DOES NOT mean to her.

  • A spirited and heart felt discussion on education for Native Youth (FNEA rejections) - we can/need to take better care of our young people as they head to institutions.


As always, thanks for listening. Make sure you subscribe to the podcast to get new episodes sent directly to your Email or iTunes.
