It's being called a reconciliatory move: a new Liberal budget forgiving interest charges on loans taken out by First Nations to cover the costs of treaty negotiations in British Columbia. But just how grateful should anyone be to a country that imposed such loans in the first place?

Back at the roundtable with host/producer Rick Harp this week are Candis Callison, Visiting Professor of Canadian Studies at Princeton University, and Kim TallBear, associate professor of Native Studies at the University of Alberta.

This week, another stolen generation, another class action. Three billion dollars, thousands upon thousands of children. These are the stakes of a potential class action alleging the federal government knowingly and "systematically" underfunded child and family services on-reserve, a neglect that's led to the widespread removal of First Nations children from their homes. Negligence that now has legal teams seeking compensation on behalf of those who've suffered the consequences.

 

Back with host/producer Rick Harp at the roundtable are Brock Pitawanakwat, Associate Professor of Indigenous Studies at York University, and Ken Williams, assistant professor with the University of Alberta's department of drama.

On this week’s Indigenous roundtable: high-tech treaty rights. According to Māori in New Zealand, their treaty rights don’t just extend to resources of the land and sea, they also include a fair share of the radio spectrum known as 3G, 4G and (soon) 5G, that set of telecommunication frequencies our wireless devices depend on. But the reception from the Settler state so far has been anything but great.

Joining host/producer at the roundtable this week are Candis Callison, Visiting Professor of Canadian Studies at Princeton University, and Kim TallBear, associate professor of Native Studies at the University of Alberta.

THIS WEEK: A headdress head scratcher. What exactly did the premier of Albertaa province hell-bent on hydrocarbon exploitation, come what maydo to deserve the honour of a Blackfoot headdress? Then again, could it be that, as non-Blackfoot, it’s none of our goddam business? So what do we make of those Blackfoot who do seem to hate the idea?

Joining host/producer Rick Harp at the roundtable this time: Brock Pitawanakwat, Associate Professor of Indigenous Studies at York University, and Ken Williams, assistant professor with the University of Alberta’s department of drama.
