#312 Holding Space For Grief
The discovery of 215 residential school children in a mass grave spurs this week's discussion on how journalists report stories about Indigenous people. And in the wake of this news, a Bill that could empower Indigenous children is largely eclipsed.
Thunder Bay host Ryan McMahon and IndigiNews’ child welfare reporter Anna McKenzie co-host in Jesse’s absence.
Further reading & watching:
- Former Chair of the Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission Murray Sinclair comments on the discovery;
- Ian Mosby’s Twitter thread about on the National Post’s residential school denialism;
- Anna’s most recent piece about how non-Indigenous people can support the healing process;
- And Anna duly noted this article.
