In the Season 6 finale of Red Man Laughing, Ryan replays his “12 Steps To Decolonization in Canada” mini-series with an accompanying “directors cut” and commentary on each of the pieces.
In this episode of Red Man Laughing we bring you to Yellowknife during the Stories From The Land National Tour to share the stories of Hovak Johnston. Hovak is a multidisciplinary artist that has created the Inuit Tattoo Revitilization Project, a project in the North that is committed to the revitilization of traditional forms of Inuit tattooing.
July 1st, 2017 marked the FIRST day of #Canada150…that’s right, folks. The lead up that has nauseated many of us was actually only #Canada149. In this episode we identify priority areas of what we believe should be the focus of #Canada150 for Indigenous People & their allies.

In this episode of Red Man Laughing, Ryan sits down with the gentlemen from, “The Skoden Chronicles,” to talk decolonization, Indigenous masculinity, the trappings of art and community and more. Follow and subscribe to The Skoden Chronicles wherever you listen to podcasts.
