Red Man Laughing - EP#19 The Leanne Simpson Interview

In this episode of Red Man Laughing we talk with author, scholar and artist - Leanne Simpson. Leanne is the author of the incredible "Dancing On Our Turtles Back" and having read the book (going on 12 times now), I decided that i NEEDED to have Leanne on the podcast to share her empowering and enlightening message. Her book changed my life and I not only wanted to thank her, but I wanted to dig a bit deeper in terms of decolinization and where that journey must start - with us, as individuals.

As always, thanks for listening. Make sure you subscribe to the podcast to get new episodes send directly to your RSS ReaderEmail or iTunes – it’s FREE and easy to do and we certainly appreciate the support! BOOM!
