Double the fun or double trouble? Seemingly out of nowhere, the federal Liberals have decided to re-arrange the political furniture as part of a late summer shuffle of their Cabinet. What is now Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada will be cleaved in two—in future, First Nations will have to deal with the department of "Crown-Indigenous relations and Northern Affairs" and the department of "Indigenous Services." But will INAC be cleaved so much as cloned? What does this ostensible re-org actually, concretely mean? In light of this unexpected shift, we’re doing a shift of our own this week to go as deep as possible on exactly these questions with special guests Russ Diabo, a Kahnawake Mohawk analyst, writer and activist, and Peter Di Gangi, a land rights researcher and analyst with Sicani Research.

// Our theme is 'nesting' by birocratic.

    I think because of the division between Bellegarde and grassroots brought this on.The Feds can't just deal with AFN and grassroots need representation. Catch 22 unless that is bridged very tricky path forward.The money for kids need to flow and health issues. Maybe there will be movement. I really hope so.
