On this week's Indigenous roundtable: Make room for men—we try to decipher recent revelations that the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls will examine "ways in which the testimonies and stories of men and boys might be collected," sparking fears that it risks de-centering the voices and perspectives of those it was set up to serve. And: Street fight in Port Alberni, BC—what do you do when a road where you live is named after a dead white supremacist? According to a majority of city council, apparently nothing at all.

Joining us are Brock Pitawanakwat, an assistant professor of Indigenous studies at the University of Sudbury, and Wawmeesh Hamilton, a Vancouver-based journalist and photographer.

    Terrific interview & discussion. Colonial white jacket difficult to escape ... but it is happening, slowly but surely.
    Can you imagine all across Canada the names
    who now would not be approved? (Changing would spur economic activity for sure.)
    We have a long way to go yet; this discussion helps.
