  • Summary

  • The Anishinaabe are guided by the Seven Grandfather Teachings—Love, Bravery, Humility, Wisdom, Honesty, Respect, and Truth. In Seven Truths, we explore each teaching through the eyes of Anishinaabe storyteller Tanya Talaga, and through the lives and experiences of people she’s proud to know. These truths, told through contemporary stories, help us find common ground here on Turtle Island, so that we can live together, justly.

  • Episode 7: Truth
    Nov 25 2020
    Barbara Kentner’s eventual death after a metal trailer hitch was hurled at her by a passing car reveals deep-seated, racist truths about the city of Thunder Bay, about the country of Canada, and about the dangers of walking down any street as an Indigenous woman or girl. In this, the final teaching, we discover that many still don’t want to face the many truths at the foundation of this tragic story.

  • Episode 6: Respect
    Nov 25 2020
    In 1974, Anicinabe Park, in the sleepy town of Kenora, Ontario, was occupied by armed First Nations Peoples from across the continent who refused to leave till their demands were met. At the core of their occupation: a request for recognition and respect. They were tired of ever-present police brutality and their basic human rights being ignored. This is a story you’ve probably never heard of or know much about, but it stands side by side with more famous civil rights movements that happened across Turtle Island throughout the ‘60s and ‘70s.

  • Episode 5: Honesty
    Nov 25 2020
    Members of Iskatewizaagegan or Shoal Lake 39 are trying to make an honest city out of Winnipeg. The First Nations community is demanding the city pay up after over 100 years of removing clean drinking water from the lake and shipping it via an aqueduct to the houses, businesses, and buildings in Winnipeg, without any compensation whatsoever. Is it fair to remove water and grow one city at the absolute expense of another community?

Must listen to

I'm happy that I found this podcast, it was produced and journaled very well. This listen opened my eyes to the racism Native Americans face still today with true stories and interviews. Thank you for sharing.

Excellent Canadian Reflection

This podcast 7 episode series was a great listen. A mix of discussion and interview surrounding current issues facing the Anishinaabe people of Canada and how they dead with them through the Seven Truths, this is the reflection my Thanksgiving week needed. Tanya Talaga, Anishinaabe storyteller, interviews different Elders, students, journalists, and activists in Canada to explain how these various stories can be understood through the lens seven teachings: love, bravery, humility, wisdom, honesty, respect, and truth.

I learned so much from this series, and I recommend this to everyone interested in Native American history, culture, and especially modern struggles.

wow! what a let down for the series!

The horrific crime perpetrated against a First American wonan devolved into whining ... revenge ... hate & the FA victim acting exactly like an overprivledged White bastard ...
