In this episode, I address some of the issues that impact many Indigenous students attending education systems off the reserves and I talk about certain factors that either support or hinder Indigenous students. As a Blackfoot teacher, I share my experiences, and my knowledge on these important matters that affect Indigenous people in these education systems. I also address the racism that is deeply embedded in off-reserve education systems that Indigenous educators encounter.  I share how non-Indigenous educators working in these education systems can and need to do better so Indigenous students, Indigenous families, Indigenous communities and Indigenous employees will feel welcomed and how school cultures have an important part in ending racism towards Indigenous people in education systems. It is imperative that Indigenous people are at the table making decisions around curriculum, programming, and leadership; this episode unpacks how that looks and what education systems need to do appropriately so Indigenous students thrive and have a positive, healthy experience in education systems.

Julia Rose Sutherland is a multidisciplinary artist whose work explores the trauma and social issues associated with her aboriginal roots as a Mi'kmaq woman of the Metepenagiag Nation of Canada. She is addressing the systems of commodification, representation, worth, as well as the identity politics surrounding Indigenous Peoples of North America. With this, she fosters a dialogue regarding the treatment, representation, and voice of these marginalized communities. Often the work emphasizes concepts of loss, absence, alongside adapted Metepenagiag Mi'kmaq Nation traditional materials and techniques. Sutherland desires to regain a sense of identity and push to engage a more mindful conversation around topical subjects such as addiction, mental health, feminism, and aboriginal identity politics. In this conversation, I talk with Julia Rose Sutherland about her art that creates spaces for dialogue that addresses issues affecting Indigenous people, women, and communities. We discuss various works of hers that speak to systemic racism and genocide, and we share stories of resilience, courage and beauty from our Indigenous cultures. Julia's authentic voice and artistic gifts are inspiring and create opportunities for members of society to reflect on their attitudes, actions towards and connections with Indigenous people; past, present, and future.• To learn more about Julia Rose Sutherland's Art, see the links below:Website: https://juliarosesutherland.com/IG: https://www.instagram.com/julia.rose.sutherland/FB: https://www.facebook.com/JuliaRoseSutherland/• If this episode made you smile + reflect + relate + reimagine, please share it with your social media circle so that others can enjoy this beautiful story. • To connect with Talks With A Fox Podcast Community and Online Store visit stop by our Website: https://talkswithafoxpodcast.buzzsprout.com/ IG: https://www.instagram.com/talkswithafoxpodcast/FB: https://www.facebook.com/talkswithafoxpodcast/ Thank you for joining Talks With A Fox Podcast on this colourful journey!

Brooks Arcand-Paul is the Vice President of the Indigenous Bar Association of Canada, and he is from Alexander First Nation in Treaty Six Territory, where he grew up. In this conversation, we discuss how his vision for creating change and dismantling systems of oppression from colonialism that has impacted Indigenous people in Canada is what drives him to wake up everyday and fulfill his purpose and passion. Brooks is dedicated to using his legal and traditional knowledge to advocate for First Nations' Treaty rights. Brooks has been committed to furthering First Nations priorities in Treaty Six, Seven and Eight territories within Alberta, and Treaty territories in Ontario.

Corey Gray is a member of the Siksika Nation (Northern Blackfoot tribe of Alberta) and Scottish. He is a Scientist, Gravitational Wave Detector Operator, backpacker, salsa dancer, traveler, and a curious soul who has brought forward a newfound excitement for the world of science as he shares connections between physics and the Blackfoot language. Corey and his team at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (L.I.G.O.), where he is the lead operator made one of the greatest scientific discoveries of the century that supports Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. In my conversation with Corey, a 2017 Nobel Prize recipient, we discuss how science was always part of the Blackfoot culture and history. Corey tells how his passion for science and learning has provided him with opportunities to share with the world about his discoveries in physics and how they have been translated into the Blackfoot language with the guidance of his mother, Sharon Yellowfly, a fluent Blackfoot language speaker. Corey is a leader and a role model who is an inspiration to many, and he is a vanguard increasing the awareness and presence of Indigenous expertise and contributions made in the sciences. Corey Gray walks with humility and is a natural teacher who is connecting a new generation of learners to a new way of thinking and reminding us all that there is so much for us to discover in the world around us.  • To learn more about Corey Gray’s contributions to the world of science and his exciting journey of discoveries , visit:Link: https://www2.calstate.edu/impact-of-the-csu/alumni/made-in-the-csu/humboldt/Pages/corey-gray.aspxLink: https://www.ted.com/talks/corey_gray_the_night_my_heart_was_hijacked_by_black_holes_and_gravitational_wavesFB: https://www.facebook.com/gray.corey IG: https://www.instagram.com/corey_m_gray/?hl=en• If this episode made you smile + reflect + relate + reimagine, please share it with your social media circle so that others can enjoy this beautiful story. • Connect with Talks With A Fox Podcast Community and Online Store at:Website: https://talkswithafoxpodcast.buzzsprout.com/IG: https://www.instagram.com/talkswithafoxpodcast/FB: https://www.facebook.com/talkswithafoxpodcast/Thank you for connecting with us and for being part of the Talks With A Fox Podcast family!
