In this episode of Red Man Laughing we take you to the “Notions of Nationhood – Tea & Bannock Dialogues” that took place on February 10, 2016 at the Aboriginal Centre of Winnipeg, for a keynote presentation by Anishinaabe Elder, Dave Courchene (Nii Gaani Aki Inini – Leading Earth Man).
In this riveting call to action, Elder Courchene implores us to consider our original instructions as Indigenous Peoples, our obligations to each other and to the land and to focus on “us” and not “them” when it comes to Nationhood and rebuilding our communities.
