Originally aired on October 28
Re-release November 30
With a title borrowed from the Cree word for “one who walks alone”, Governor General Award-winning author Darrel J. McLeod presents his latest memoir, Peyakow: Reclaiming Cree Dignity. An inspiring account of triumph against unimaginable odds, McLeod’s insightful perspective as someone whose career path has crossed both sides of the Indigenous/white chasm is beautifully frank. Joining McLeod in conversation is internationally recognized frontline environmental activist and writer Clayton Thomas-Müller with an electrifying new memoir, Life in the City of Dirty Water. Tying together personal stories of survival that bring the realities of the First Nations of this land into sharp focus, Thomas-Müller offers a vision of healing and responsibility. This poignant conversation is essential viewing, resonating with particular force in today’s Canada.
