Settler Education 101: Indigenous Podcasts

Excellent Listening While Walking Your Coastal Canine

As autumn blows in on the back of the current Bomb Cyclone , it's a good time to check out some amazing podcasts. Whether listening while you walk your Coastal Canine through the woods, or while cozied up by the fire as the gale blows outside, these Indigenous-driven podcasts will keep you both educated and engaged.

This Place, with Roseanna Deerchild, is a ten-part journey through 150 years of Indigenous resistance and resilience. A variety of Indigenous creators including David. A Robertson, Richard Van Camp, Katherena Vermette and Brandon Mitchell join Deerfield in creating and telling stories of the heroes, battles, triumphs and traditions outside and beyond the national stories we've all been taught.

The Story-Keepers podcast is a three-season, 28 episode celebration of Indigenous storytelling, hosted by writers Waubgeshig Rice and Jennifer David and with a wide range of writers, publishers and storytellers

Telling Our Twisted Histories, a podcast with Kaniehti:io Horn that examines Indigenous history in Canada, with the goal of decolonizing all that we know, one concept at a time.

Missing and Murdered. Both of the true crime stories hosted so movingly here by CBC's investigative reporter Connie Walker are compelling but very difficult listening. Season one investigates the disappearance of Alberta Williams, and season two delves into Walker's search to find a missing Indigenous child in Finding Cleo.

Auntie Up is a 10-part podcast presented by Jolene Banning and Kim Wheeler, and executive produced by Tanya Talaga. It's a celebration of Indigenous women, who can always be counted on to tell the truth without a sugar coating. Topics range from Land Defenders to beading to the climate crisis, all discussed with humour and an Indigenous perspective of the Auntie's world views.
