It was a much-anticipated verdict in a much-discussed case: the 2016 shooting death of 22-year-old Colten Boushie, a member of the Red Pheasant First Nation in Saskatchewan. His accused killer: 56-year-old white farmer Gerald Stanley, charged with second-degree murder. A charge he was acquitted of last Friday evening, much to the shock, disgust, sadness and outrage of Indigenous people everywhere. This week on MEDIA INDIGENA, we discuss how we got to this point, the response, and where things might go from here.

Joining host Rick Harp at the roundtable this week are Brock Pitawanakwat, an assistant professor of Indigenous studies at the University of Sudbury, and Ken Williams, an assistant professor with the University of Alberta’s department of drama.

// Our theme is 'nesting' by birocratic.

    this makes me so fcukin sad, angry....in total disbelief that the people on the jury were so stupid to accept this defense....I totally support the Boushie family and friends. Not so sure what I can do to help, I want to help. I have been doing so much research on this case and it was so hard to find actually testimony on what happened in the final moments and after....I am a settled white person and this is so shameful.

    I'm looking forward to the usual probing and multi-faceted discussion with the roundtable. The outrage persists, but I want a chance to think more about what's next.

    Thank you for a reasoned and comprehensive break down of the Boushie case. There has been a firestorm of media attention which makes wading through a thousand hot takes difficult when your trying to understand what actually happened.

    This story cannot be buried. I won't let it, my heart won't let this story die
