Stories have kept us alive, grounded and inspired. They carry the resistance and the strength of our ancestors. They hold our truths. And when we tell them on our own terms to an engaged audience, they carry a tremendous responsibility to transform.
―Leanne Betasamosake Simpson
These are stories of resilience, transformation and solidarity. All speak to the need for change in formal education, and the centrality of Indigenous ways of learning and being in our lives and communities. Please honour these voices, listen and watch with heart, reach out to others as some may bring up painful memories or experiences.
To all the storytellers:
