On our first MINI INDIGENA of the season, host/producer Rick Harp and MI regular Trina Roache (Rogers Chair in Journalism at the University of King’s College) are joined by special guest Melissa Ridgen (former co-anchor of APTN National News, now a network managing editor at Global News), as they discuss:

• The Siksika First Nation to create reportedly first-ever First Nation bylaw prosecutor's office in Canada

• Trina’s RT of the @APTNNews post: “NDP MP Leah Gazan [successfully] reintroduced a motion to recognize what happened in Canada’s residential school system as an act of genocide…”

• Rick’s RT of the @TorontoStar post: “Loblaw made $1 million per day in ‘excess’ profits in 2022, according to a new report analyzing rising prices in the grocery industry.”

• Why a Northern Manitoba health leader says English language test a barrier to Indigenous nurses that “smells like white supremacy”
